    I'm fairly new to jailbreaking, well, completely new as it goes :]

    I have a 3GS on iOS4, running modem firmware 05.13.04.

    The kit has never been jailbroken or tampered with in any way.

    I read that it's not possible to JB > Unlock the phone for use on any carrier? Is this true? I find all sorts of guides etc but they all mention the device needs to have been jailbroken on an earlier release (or something).

    Any one able to offer any advice?

    Jailbreak with jailbreakme.com and then unlock with ultrasn0w which is an app in Cydia ( the jailbreak app store )

    Looking good. Cydia installed, ultrasn0w down and phone rebooting

    -- update --

    I wont know if this has worked until after the weekend, sadly, since my other sim is at home, and I am away until tuesday, but hopefully those very simple and painless steps worked, thanks!

    Hmmm, seems to be bricked. i put the new sim in, and it's stuck booting up. now with either sim or no sim i get stuck on the apple logo on bootup. holding the home button on startup does nothing either

    any tips for simply restoring it?

    Place into dfu mode and restore thru iTunes. Hopefully u saved ur shsh blobs on cydia to downgrade before 4.0.2 was released or ur SOL till a new jb is released
