    I am getting a iphone 3g that is currently on the newest version (2.2.1) and the 2.30 modem firmware. I eventually am getting a turbo sim card (gevey: I think thats what its called)... I am going to unlock it with quickpwn. I can't hurt anything by jailbreaking it can I since its already the newest modem firmware can i?

    As far as I know, jailbreaking and using a simcard unlock are two different birds. One is hardware and the other is software. Using this logic, jailbreaking with not be affected by the simcard unlock.
