    Umm... If you're wanting an unlock for the new iPhone 3GS, then you'll ahve to wait for an exploit to be found, then a Jailbreak to be made. Theoretically ultrasn0w should work for the 3GS since the baseband is the same as the 3G, but no one really knows.

    No love? You realize the people who write the unlocks do this for free and have to spend hours in order to find loopholes and exploits to make it so an unlock is possible? No love? How about a little patience?

    The 3G took nearly 6 months to unlock. Don't get your hopes up anytime soon. Even though the Baseband is identical to 3G, they don't know if the 3G S can even be jailbroken.:rolleyes:

    They've seem to have unlocked the 3GS, and unlocking requires jailbreaking. The dev team are probably just ironing out bugs and stuff.

    Help me understand. If the baseband is the same, what is different to the point they cant unlock or jailbreak the 3Gs yet?

    Nope, same principal as iPod touch 2G, new hardware, so it took a long time to jailbreak.

    Keyword being "may". Nobody knows right now, the Dev Team just unlocked and jailbroke the 3.0 firmware on all devices (except 3G S, of course). Give them a rest, jeesh.

    I'm also waiting on a unlock to buy my 3GS...I dont own an iphone yet but I'll think the unlock and jailbreak will come sooner than anyone thinks..
    if they unlocked and jailbroke 3G in just a few days..the 3GS isn't all that different from 3G in terms of hardware I think..those guys from the dev team are geniuses...they'll come up with sometime soon! we just have to brace ourselves and wait! I can't barely wait!:)

    Geohot (Google: Geohot) has seemed to already found an exploit for the 3GS...

    (Can someone tell me where in "settings" the MMS settings are? I CAN'T FIND IT!)

    If it is enabled, it would be under "Messages" in Settings, however, from what you have said, it sounds like you haven't enabled it. Remember the 2G doesn't have MMS. Do you have AT&T?

    It order to run the unlocking program (unltrasn0w) you need to enable the iPhone to run 3rd party applications (jailbroken). So the first step is to get the 3gs jailbroken. From there the dev team will be able to unlock it

    I hope they release a jailbreak soon.
    Probably 3-4 weeks is my guess, those guys are good.
