    Default 3gs Unlock with serial 85137? Please help.
    Hey guys just inherited a 3gs and it was updated to 5.1.1 and it's modem firmware is 05.16.05 the serial starts with 85137, I did some reading on here and I know I must downgrade the firmware but it says also anything with 135 and up can't be downgraded. Just wondering if there is anyway to unlock or am i out of luck? Thanks for any help.

    no it is NOT recommended for you to downgrade your baseband, because according to the first 5 digits you provided, that 3gs was manufactured in 2011 of week 37, which means that if you use redsn0w to downgrade the baseband you will potentially "brick", or in other words, damaged the baseband permanently, resulting in an unusable iphone...

    unfortunately you cannot, and SHOULD NOT do anything else to unlock, except for calling at&t and see if they can unlock it for you

    I would either recommend either calling AT&T and see if you have a chance to unlock it, or use it as an ipod for your music and pictures

    Evasi0n is a jailbreak for iOS 6 (except the currently signed 6.1.3). If it's iOS 5, you may want to use either Redsn0w or Absinthe. Also, you can look on eBay for an IMEI unlock ($4 +/-)or contact Cowboy (mod here). Good luck....
