    Jailbreaking doesn't have anything to do with whether a phone will work on a given network. What it sounds like your friend needs to do is unlock the phone, which can be done either by running unlocking software after jailbreaking (depending on your firmware version and baseband version) or by requesting an official carrier unlock from the carrier it is currently locked to.

    It'll take a bit more information for us to be much help on these forums. What kind of iPhone is it? What version firmware is it running? What version is the baseband? What carrier was it originally (and, from the sounds of it, still is) locked to? What was the error message your friend got when he put the 3 SIM in?
