I can't believe people buy stuff from Craigslist.

Apparently, if it's not like in that picture, you can't unlock your phone. You're screwed. Sell it to someone else.

Version 01.59.00

If you have a friend with an AT&T micro sim card borrow that and reset the phone in DFU mode. You might get lucky and reset it to the older baseband. No promises, though. And at the least you'll be able to use it as a wi-fi device for the time being (without cellular connectivity).

If you updated to iOS 5 or 5.0.1 with iTunes, then your iPhone cannot be software or gevey unlocked.
