All i know is that i followed the instructions exactly and it only took a couple of minutes to jailbreak my phone with redsnOw 0.8. Been using it for a day now and works flawlessly. I trust dev team more than anyone else but that i just me.

LOL, your info is wrong. Saurik had to update mobile substrate and winterboard for it to work on ANY 3gs whether it was jailbroken with redsn0w or purplera1n. FYI-Redsn0w is using the exploit Geohot and the Chronic Devv team discovered...Geohot is also the one who discovered the first iPhone Unlock

So using this redsn0w can I hacktivate iPhone 3GS. If so how? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. I am not having the official carrier nor do i plan to get one.

I jailbroke and unlocked my 3GS, and it seemed to work since I was able to use my T-mobile SIM and call. However, the 3GS stopped detecting my Wi-Fi network. I tried resetting the iPhone network settings, Airplane method, but no luck. I put my AT&T SIM back in, and the Wi-Fi worked again. I guess there are still bugs in ultrasn0w. The only consolation was that I was able to activate MMS.
Still waiting for a stable unlocking method. However, I think I will be staying with AT&T. The 3G speed spoiled me. Why T-mobile USA uses different 3G frequencies from the rest of the world is beyond me. So frustrating.

YES!!!! I missed this part and almost pulled my hair out trying to figure out why I couldn't get things to work. Restore your 3GS from the downloaded firmware and THEN begin this process. Saved me from insanity. After that, redsn0w worked faster and easier than any jailbreak I have ever performed.

If I do this, will all of my stuff still be on the phone that was there prior (sms text messages, VOICEMAILS, photos, etc.)?
Thanks for your help. Any advice to a "first time jailbreaker" would be GREATLY appreciated.

Had the same issue that a few other members were having with the OSx version. Once I used the Win version it Jailbroke the phone just fine.
