Jailbreak iphone 3g unlocked by turbo sim

I have a iphone 3g unlocked by turbo sim and firmware version is 2.0.1.
I will try jailbreak with Pwagne tool. I'm wondering if the turbo sim wouldn't work after jailbreaking. Can anybody advise me regarding of this issue?
Thanks

Thumbs up

I am using turbo sim n has the same doubt before jailbreaking. But don't worry, if the rebel sim works before jailbreaking then it will work even after you jailbreak. Also remember to select the ACTIVATE option in pwnage tool while creating the custom firmware.

Thanks a lot. Your comment encourages me to do it. One more thing, selecting the ACTIVATE option doesn't mean unlocking the phone, does it? I still need the turbo sim, right?

wish the ACTIVATE option would unlock the phone. Then we wouldn't have to use REBEL SIM :-) btw, it does not unlock it. If you don't select it, even after restoring with the custom firmware your phone will be stuck at SLIDE TO UNLOCK SCREEN. The ACTIVATE option brings youur iPhone to the springboard.
