    Default can I do this with an unlocked phone?
    I currently have an 3.0 3g jailbroken phone. I was thinking of restoring, jailbreaking again with redsn0w ( is that needed?) unlock with ultrasn0w. I was thinking of then giving this unlocked phone to my brother.
    Will he have any issues going to another provider? what are some things to think about?
    Am I going about this correctly?

    your brother wouldn't have problem if he's going to another provider because it is already unlocked and why would you restore and JB/unlock it again?...you just have to go to reset and choose erase all content and settings and the phone will be good as new without even restoring it

    Not sure if I fully understand that. Could you explain in better detail please?
    since my phone is already jailbroken are you saying I could just go into cydia and download ultrasn0w and unlock? I am not sure what you mean about reset.

    thanks

    I dont reccomend doing that at all! I have had to restore my Ipod a couple of times lately and the one time I trie doing it from the actual device it bricked. and besides it is much faster if you do it from the computer anyway.

    just go to your Settings option in your PHONE!, and look for reset button, its usually under your general settings, and hit erase all data and settings...
