    Jailbreak it. Then you will be able to update to 3.0. Then you will need to use ultrasnow to jailbreak and unlock it. Then just put your tmobile sim in and your good to go.

    Did you try restoring it first? Once restored, it should be on 3.0, and on emergency mode. Put it into DFU mode and then install a pwned ipsw 3.0 firmware w/ forced activation. That should allow you to get on the wifi and go on cydia, get ultrasn0w, and then you're set.

    Use PwnageTool on Mac to create custom firmware. When you do so, make sure you choose to activate the phone.

    If you're not on a Mac, there have been dozens of threads with firmware you can use. To install this firmware, put your phone in DFU and option click to restore.

    Hope that helped.
