    So i just bought an iPhone 3G at the at&t store and would like to use it with a different carrier, it has firmware 3.1.3 on it and i have iTunes 9.1 on my mac, i've been looking all over for an answer but everyone just seems to be talking about the iPhone 3GS or the iPad >_< i really don't wanna break it or do anything before i'm sure it'll work..
    I've had a jailbroken iPhone (first generation) before and unlocked it many times, but as it broke a few months ago I'm totally not up to date now..

    Please help, Thank you!

    so basically fml >_<
    so when is the jailbreak gonna be released though? according to what i read they probably have it ready but are just waiting on iphone OS 4? and wasn't there an apple event about that today?
    i really hope it's not gonna take too long because right now i can't use my iphone, i only have a german o2 sim card which i will have to use with it..

    I'm not sure this is entirely true. I accidentally updated my firmware and was able to downgrade my baseband and OS to 3.1.2 google it.

    it seems in order to downgrade i have to have cydia on it but i don't since it's new and not jailbroken and apparently there's no way to jailbreak 3.1.3 ... :(

    You CAN jailbreak the 3G on 3.1.3. You CAN'T unlock it .
    With a brandnew 3G you won't be able to downgrade the baseband , even jailbroken.

    Yes. Using redsnow to jailbreak or maybe pwnage but since redsnow does not restore and its faster. You cannot unlock though

    you CAN jailbreak a 3g, with redsn0w using the 3.1.2 firmware

    you CAN unlock it after jailbreaking by downgrading the baseband with FUZZYBAND from cydia. IF your bootloader model is 5.08

    So does anyone have any news on what the release of the new OS might've changed in my situation? Can I unlock my iPhone 3G 3.1.3 now?
    I've been using it as an ipod touch basically..

    Couple of options for you. 3G is quite nice to work with right now.

    well there is a way to unlock now, ultrasnow has been updated, i forgot how lucky i was, my 3g broke and when i got the replacement the BOOTLOADER was 5.08! not only is this a 2 month old thread, but there has been new updates to unlock. 3g is probably the most flexible to unlock and jailbreak compared to 3gs and iphone 4
