    Hey, i got an used iPhone 3GS today and i wanted to unlock it from a sim using jailbreak on 5.1, I think my iPhone 3GS isn't compatible with the iPad Baseband.

    How can i get it back to normal?

    Please help my dad will kill me if i cant fix it.

    You can't undo the iPad bb.
    If you're on 5.0.1 and you tried restoring to stock firmware you will need to install the iPad bb again using redsnow.

    Do you think apple would be able to restore it back to normal?. as i have a friend who works at apple and he might be able to get rid of it. Not sure because its 3am and i ain't asked him.

    They won't touch the device. The best they will offer you is allowing you to pay $200 for a new phone.

    Like the bro said above.
    Once they plug it in and see that you installed the ipad bb they will give it back to you.
    They updated the hardware on the newer 3GS phones so if you try to install the ipad bb you pretty much ruined the phone.
    Only option to receive a replacement would be to pay up the $150 replacement fee but who knows if they will go for that either.
    Next time listen to your dad.

    I dont think you're getting it.
    You messed up the baseband. That's what is used to make phone calls and connect to the network. Its not the JB, its the ipad bb that you installed on an incompatible 3GS model.
    The baseband is done.

    Try restoring with a custom ipsw. Before you ask how to do it.... Search!
