No, you don't need a sim card in order to jailbread your phone. I just jailbroke my old 3G today after picking up the 3GS and everything went smoothly. The only thing I can't tell is if it's unlocked or not after trying to run the Ultrasn0w unlock. You should be good to go if you're just trying to jailbreak though!

Yes, they are two different things. You have to jailbreak in order to unlock, but you don't need to unlock in order to jailbreak.

Just don't try to unlock or jailbreak your Iphone 3GS yet, since Ultrasn0w isn't compatible and you may inadvertently end up Jonesing your iPhone.

Hey, one question regarding activating the iphone. I jailbreak and unlocked my iphone 3G 3.0 already, everything work fine except for transferring musics to my Iphone. everytime I connect to Itunes it says: The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported. Only compatible sim cards from a supported carrier may be used to activate iphone......
Does anyone have the same problem? Can anyone help me?
