    If you are in the US, I believe you have to jailbreak in order to unlock.

    I pretty sure that if you have unlocked it once its always unlocked (my phone has been jailbroken, but i just want to get rid of the jailbreak) but my problem is activating it through iTunes

    Why do you want rid of the jailbreak?, are you having trouble with it?

    If it's activating problems you have, put into recovery mode and run redsnow.

    I had problems a while ago with this and from memory I ran Blackra1n first that failed but did leave the phone in recovery mode. Connected to itunes and selected the Restore & Update version (to 3.1.3), then ran Redsnow 0.9.4 with the BL-39 and BL-46 files to jailbreak and unlock in one go. It worked fine and that US phone is now working in Sweden with a local sim.

    ps, although the phone sw was updated to 3.1.3, you MUST select the ipsw 3.1.2 file while running redsnow.

    You will have to hactivate with redsnow and might need to run bootneuter to unlock.
