i just about getting my iphone 3gs 32gb white but can i use redsnow to activate and then use geohot m+ethod to jailbreak and unlock,dont think i can get official sim to activate

From twitter @geohot- tomorrow, i add hacktivation support :-)
so wait until tomorrow and use purplera1n/sn0w
Or you can use redsn0w now to hactivate, although no guarantee that purplesn0w will work. so use ultrasn0w for now if it does fail...

I went ahead and did a full DFU restore and then rejailbroke with Purplera1n Rc2a (which i used in the first place when i was using ultrasn0w I just didn't want any issues) and installed Purplesn0w which is working perfectly.
Just letting you guys know how i did it. I didn't just uninstall ultrasn0w and turn around and install Purplesn0w. Do it the right way first and you most likely wont have any problems. Yes it takes a little longer to do a DFU restore first but it works the first time and who knows you might be saving time by avoiding a problem down the road.160GB iPod Classic

And while I do thank Geo for finding the initial exploit on the first iPhone,we are now on the 3rd generation and other people just as smart and savvy are sure to come about..To those that say the dev team sucks,and Geo is the man,think about it this way from an automotive perspective..Karl Benz is known as the person who made the first (gas powered)automobile,does that mean that the Benz name is the end all be all and that nobody else would come along and up the ante?
And those that say the dev team rocks and Geo sucks,well if it wasnt for him,the first iphone wouldnt have been broken (hey wait,I dont see how this pertains to the here and now but)
Guess the point im trying to make is,if they are trying to 1 up each other,its kinda hard to support both.

Thats right its geohot who started this hole iphone jailbreak/unlocking scene not the devteam..im not saying there useless or anything just that it wasnt them who started the hole thing it was geohot

This unlock is broken on any phone with 3G enabled, regardless of provider. Disabling 3G through SBsettings immedietly fixes the problem, and you get signal + wifi right away. Enabling it again kills them both and causes the phone to run very slowly.
Hopefully he will come out with a fix for this

Sorry guys, but GeoHot's Jailbreak is much more superior then Dev Team. Now his unlock will be even better as well.
GeoHot is the one who finds all the exploits as well, please don't bash him.
Google hired him for a reason

So if I unlocked with redsn0w (2G 3.0) just for the heck of it does that mean that my battery is being drained more quickly?
I realize that this mod is for 3GS only, but the part about running an extra program for unlock got my attention.

Its important not to lose sight of the cause. We need to support both. We also need to donate to keep them going. I dropped a "feety" on geo for purplera1n. What ever software you use, please donate if it works for you ;-)

I'm happy with my AT&T service so no need for the unlock, but I'm glad to see people are making these attempts. Hopefully one day Apple and other handset manufacturers will realize the futility of "locking" a mobile to any carrier and just let everyone choose what they want and who they want.
Thanks to Geo and the Dev team for all their hard work, and their competition. Choice is a good thing.

There will be an update to purplesn0w tonight that will fix some bugs as well. As it was stated before, the first version of sn0w is a beta, use at your own risk!!

Just tried this unlock, works perfect. All I did was uninstall ultra, reboot the phone then install purple and reboot again. Phone found T-Mobile service almost instantly and everything works perfect!Apples taste good.
