04-10-2013, 07:05 PM #1Help Unlocking IPhone 3GS
iPhone 3GS new boot rom.
Not jail broken.
Carrier '3' Uk.
How can I unlock my iPhone and get the carrier back? Please help.

You have two options:
1. Pay around $20 for 3UK to unlock (best choice)
2. If you have saved SHSH blobs, use Redsn0w to downgrade to an untethered jailbreakable firmware; then jailbreak and install Ultrasn0w. (better choice)
Note: If you combine option 1 and 2 then you don't need to install ultrasn0w
3. Tethered jailbreak using Redsn0w and install Ultrasn0w (Note: You need to plug your iPhone to a computer and use Redsn0w or
other tools to tethered reboot whenever you power off or restart the iPhone.... Main reason people hate tethered jailbreak.) (terrible choice ... 8-))
I personally don't like tethered jailbreak ... 8-))

So if I pay for the unlock, I'll be able to fix the 'no service' carrier? Also do I have to upgrade my BB back to the original?

That's correct. After paying for an unlock it's better to stay with the latest baseband because you don't need an older band for a soft/hard unlock anymore.
