    Have you tried jailbreaking it and then unlock with Ultrasn0w.

    Do you want to stay at 3.1.3 or 4.0?

    Ok, can you do a restore again to 3.1.3 and then run Redsn0w 0.9.4, you will need the 3.1.2 while running Redsn0w. Redsn0w will hactivate, jailbreak for you. Then go to Cydia and install Ultrasn0w again to see if it works.

    Edit : Installing Ultrasn0w has nothing to do with O2 carrier, Ultrasn0w should install unless your jailbreak is corrupted and wouldn't accept Ultrasn0w.
