I was giving a 3gs for free from my friend upon his upgrade to the 4g, so I figured I would unlock my new 3gs. But I decided to drop in a gophone sim and saw that it worked just fine minus the data. Is this a normal thing to happen?
My plan was to unlock it for tmobile/att gophone because I have both, but it just happen to work with no issues with the gophone sim.
current iphone stats
my friend said it is not unlocked or anything yet, so if my phone can be unlocked ect.. what would be the best way/options for me to consider thank you.
also i would be unlocking with a windows based computer

You've got to use spirit to jailbreak then ultrasn0w. But if it's already working for calls then it's already unlocked. Have you checked your data settings?

Perhaps the fact that GoPhone is an ATT product means that it will work in an ATT sim-locked phone. I don't know that, just a guess.

Search for unlockit and run that, it let's you changes you apn settings for data. Maybe that's all you need.

ok I used spirit it worked fine, but i am wondering do i have to do the whole bootnueter thing and do the steps?
Also I see I have cydia installed already after using spirit so I guess things were done right?
Thank for all of your help already I thank a few of you.

You should be fine with what you have done already, just need ultrasnow and you are done!

Keep the Go phone SIM for the future. You will need it if you ever need to activate the phone after a restore.

I ran into a problem today i was about to sell my unlocked iphone and went to erase all the data from the iphone, and upon putting the sim card back the phone just stayed at the apple logo with the i guess time going by thing just the circle that rotates as it finishes?
so now I am not sure what to do i hooked up to itunes and its in recovery mode and the screen turns on and just went to dim to nothing on there. Can someone help me please I need to reunlock it to use I am phoneless atm.

If you did erase all content and settings then you have erased everything from the phone including the FW. There is only one solution and that is to restore the phone and re-jailbreak and unlock. Do not restore to latest software 4.0.2 if you can avoid it because it will prevent you from re-Jailbreaking. It appears that apple is still signing 4.0.1 so you should be able to restore to that version. Alternatively you should have SHSH blobs saved on Cydia and you can use those to fake out FW signing if apple made a change recently. Here is a tutorial: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=7556
After Restore use jailbreakme.com from safari on your iphone to JB 4.0.1
Edit: I linked the wrong URL first time but now updated it.
