    - Update to 3.1.2
    - jailbreak with blackweather
    - install Cydia
    - install blacksn0w from Cydia ( to unlock )
    - turn off 3G ( TMobile 3G is not compatible with the iPhone )
    - call TMobile and get proper network settings for MMS ( tell them you have an iPhone )
    - enjoy your phone. DO NOT UPDATE TO 3.1.3

    a guide that I read for unlocking with ultrasn0w says
    Please note that this method is only suitable to work with iPhone 3G which was previously unlocked with YellowSnow.
    should I heed this warning or is it safe to use ultrasn0w on a 3g that hasn't been unlocked yet?
    or is there a better/newer tool for use with fw version 3.1?
