Simple Jailbreak question, please help?

I'm looking for help from anyone and everyone who knows anything about iPhones...

So I was given an iPhone 3GS and I currently have a phone plan with T-Mobile... I paid about 9 dollars on a website to allow me to jailbreak my iPhone 3GS.

To make a long story short, sometimes when I call "#06#" I'm able to get service. But about 90% of the time, I'm not able to make calls, receive calls, or text people/receive texts... I have no service

Does anyone know why this is? When I first jailbroke my phone, I was able to call people and text, now I can't do anything

Please help. Is there something I should upgrade or download?

EDIT: I just realized I meant to ask, how do I UNLOCK my iPhone 3GS and keep it unlocked? Not how to jailbreak it, whoops!

1. The jailbreak tools are free, so you overpaid.

2. Unlocking would depend on what OS version you're on (iOS 5.0.1 is the most recent one).
