    Are you sure, that you searched?

    But anyway....you can buy an IMEI unlock from eBay from a seller called Unlock Fusion. That's if you're in the U.S. or Canada.

    redsn0w is a jailbrake/BB downgrade tool, it won't unlock anything

    if your 3gs is old enough (please check carefully so not to brick it!) you can install the ipad BB and than downgrade to 05.13.04 BB and install ultrasn0w to unlock.

    But i suggest you do as PsstGreek advised, get an IMEI unlcok for jus a couple of bucks

    If you do this, I think you will lose GPS.
    Might be a workaround to get it back tough.

    Thank you

    i would need downgrade my baseband from 05.16.02 to 05.13.04 to unlock it..
    but question is how do i downgrade baseband?

    ----------


    that's fine i dont really need GPS or tethering. all i want to do is unlock this phone so i could use it on any network.

    Sigen get up to speed on your knowledge….

    Yes you'll loose GPS on 06.15.0 and you WILL get it back downgrading to 05.13.04.

    Downgrade via redsn0w, iclarified has good tutorials, when you downgrade you won't loose GPS.

    But it is easier to get the IMEI unlock for $10
