Hi I came across a sim card that unlocks phones and it says it can unlock the iphone. Is that possible or not.

Gevey went up to OS 3 but it was really pointless because of the software unlocks. I remember thinking how stupid it was they even came out with it when the software unlock was out first. I think Rebel might have been the one to do that actually, can't remember, but they no longer sell them obviously.
I think the quality wasn't bad with the Gevey 3G line, I used it for a time until yellowsn0w was updated. The software unlock was of course better though.

So can I still install and use tiny umbrella? iTunes had already installed the latest update 4.21 once already from existing 4.1.
And to recap I installed the BB patch and then phone 'stuck' installing the Ultrasnow unlock because I rebooted through Cydia.

I couldn't get off the apple logo recovery mode through iTunes restore, redsn0w tethered boot or by reinstalling redsn0w baseband, etc.
So, I downloaded USBview to find my ECID. This actually showed two configurations (0x0004 and 0x0009), which may have been the issue. I have now got that down to one again.
Then I downloaded TinyUmbrella, found I had SHSH backups (4.1 / 4.2.1 / 4.3b2) so then managed to restore to 4.1 using Tiny Umbrella ispw and shift+restore on iTunes. So I am very happy about that.
I then followed the redsn0w upgrade again to have baseband 06.00.15 on my iPhone.
I have updated Cydia to the latest version then installed ultrasn0w 1.2 through Cydia, to have the phone unlocked to all networks...
I think the funky space monkey redsn0w tutorial should definitely have advice at the top to use tinyumbrella first to make a backup of SHSH in case of problems upgrading.
Mission complete. Thanks so much for your advice at every turn.

Ok, here is what I am dealing with:
I just got a 3Gs, with 4.2.1 iOS, modem firmware 5.15.04, and I'm on T-Mobile. Got the phone jailbroken (Redsn0w 0.9.6b6), but not unlocked at least as far as I can tell. It is the old (8792566B3NQ) 3Gs, with bootrom of 359.3.
Am I surmising correctly that I cannot downgrade the firmware/iOS, neither can I unlock it for use with T-Mobile?
If that is not the case, what am I missing?

Yes Google knows quite a bit. iDetector is from ih8sn0w if that'll point you in the right direction
