I have 3gs with ios 5.1 with bb 05.16.05 with 359.3.2 bootrom which is not old.It is already unlocked. For matter i don 9 if it was jailbroken or not bt i don c cydia or any other thing in it. My brother bought it in australia and unlocked it(officily i guess) becoz it is working fine from last 1.5 yrs or so. I have been upgrading the ios thru itunes regulrly. Its ios 5.1 now. My question is can i jailbreak it with ios 5.1 with bb 05.16.05 without locking it again?Bcoz its already unlocked.
is there anythin with which i cud check if my fon is unlocked officily.
Thanx in advance

It sounds like it's factory unlocked. It will forever be unlocked so it doesn't matter how you restore or upgrade, it'll stay unlocked. You can jailbreak it on 5.1 but it'll be a tethered jailbreak because you have the new boot.
Edit: I know 100% it's factory unlocked. You described it as not jailbroken and has been working with the 5.16.xx baseband, that alone says it's factory unlocked (assuming you're using a different carrier than what typically is used say in the US, it is AT&T).

I believe there's a tweak to fix Ultrasn0w for use with 5.1, but I really doubt you'd need it. From the sound of things, your phone wouldn't even work with a foreign carrier from where the phone was bought if it isn't factory unlocked.
Neither sn0wbreeze or redsn0w is really "better" but since you're already on 5.1 redsn0w will jb it quick. No need for restoring to a custom fw or anything, that's what Sn0wbreeze will have you do.

+1 On that.. Seeing as you don't have to worry about baseband, redsn0w will be your fastest route.

I'm lost, how would jailbreaking it confirm that it is unlocked? If you are able to use an Indian carrier in the first place, then it is unlocked, end of story. Am I missing something?And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix
