    Hi i have a Iphone 3g 8gb locked on the AT&T network from America
    my problem is i now have the phone in the UK and want to use it on T-Mobile UK
    the ios firmware is 3.1.2 (7d11) the modem firmware is 05.12.01

    when i got the phone back to the UK it was asking to be activated by iTunes
    but i did not do this as it was going to install the latest Ios 4.2 i was warned not to install the latest Ios

    so i took the phone to a local phone shop that could not unlock it but did manage to open it so i can use all the apps .. as you would get with an iTouch
    one thing is troubling me is on the Cydia app when i press it it just says "Loading Data" then reverts back to the main menu after a few seconds !

    can anyone please point me in the right direction as im not too good with Computers

    I'm no expert but I'd just use BlackRa1n to Jailbreak it and BlackSn0w to unlock. I think that's still 1-click for iPhone 3G on 3.1.2.

    Go to blackweather, download the right version for Windows or Mac. Plug your iPhone in, run BlackRa1n, click the button, then go on your Jailbroken iPhone, click the BlackRa1n button, and hit BlackSn0w to unlock it.

    You have a 3G... I would use pwnagetool to upgrade to 4.2.1 (which would keep your baseband firmware at 05.12.01) and then use ultrasn0w. Do NOT check the iPad baseband option since you are already at an unlockable baseband...

    Since you have a 3G you will be completely untethered and unlocked.

    If you want to stay at 3.1.2 then Rene's directions are perfect...
