    The "Airplane mode" trick stopped working years ago. What problems are you preventing from happening with syncing? iTunes doesn't block your phone from syncing. Just make sure to hit "Do not upgrade" if prompted

    Update to the newest iTunes. You shouldn't get that message, even if you're on T-mobile.

    Also, make sure your phone is properly unlocked

    Yep, iTunes 9.2 is the latest version.

    Also, I'm not sure what your current firmware is or if you have the newer bootrom for your 3GS. But if you don't you could always hacktivate your iPhone that way you don't get that "SIM card invalid" message on iTunes.

    There's several ways of activating your iPhone, as you mentioned, you could use an AT&T SIM card, even if it's no longer in use and have it inside while jailbreaking. Once it's done and you get to the emergency call screen, just open up iTunes and let it do it's thing. Once activated, you can pop your T-Mobile SIM again and then go ahead and use Cydia to download ultrasn0w 0.93 to unlock.

    If you don't have an AT&T SIM card your next best choice is hacktivating it. Either by using a custom firmware, or jailbreaking with redsn0w. (Not sure about Sn0wbreeze since I've never used it before.)

    Might save you some time, and cash (if they are charging you) if you do it yourself. If you need help on doing it just ask away!

    Go to settings, general, about and if your model starts with MC then you cannot upgrade to 4.0 yet. Also, let us know what your current firmware is. If it's 3.1.3 or below, you can definitely unlock and there should be no reason for you to pay anyone.
