    Unfortunately you won't be able to unlock because your baseband is 5.11.07

    If the Dev team or someone else finds an exploit in the new baseband, you will be unlocked.
    Keep in mind though that there is a very high possibility that a new exploit won't be found and even if one is found, it will take a really long time.

    In other words, it *might* be possible to unlock in the future, but probably not going to happen.

    It depends on the country/provider your phone is locked to.
    Some carriers do offer the unlock for the iPhone but I know most do not.
    In the US, AT&T will not unlock your iPhone for you no matter what.

    The baseband upgrade is the issue. You can search to see if it can be downgraded, I'm not sure if it can be done for that paricular badband and the 3gs bootloader. I also don't know if an unlck by carrier will work but chances are if it isn't factory unlocked it isn't doable until the dev team as mentioned above finds an exploit.

    I'm also pretty sure the dev team isn't planning on releasing a new software unlock anytime soon regarding the new baseband just because they very dedicatedly promote you to make sure you don't accidentally upgrade your baseband. I can't say it's guaranteed but it doesn't seem likely.

    Currently the 3GS baseband cannot be downgraded and only a very few amount of 3G basebands can.

    And they'll release one as soon as they find one and thinks the time is right. It'll be a long wait though...

    Agreed ^^ the baseband downgrade for bootloader 5.8 on the 3G took a long long time to be released.

    Mhm... and doesn't look like there's any usable exploits in any newer bootloaders...

    I don't know what bootloader the 3GS runs on but for 5.9 that's hasn't even been released has it?aside from that you can always hope for a turbo sim to be released for that baseband. I haven't seen any though. Best bet probably to sell the phone and get another in hopes it comes with 3.0.1

    No exploit has been found in BL 5.9 yet so the answer would be no (sad because I had to get my 5.08 phone replaced under warranty and now it's 5.09.. I miss the extra security).
    I don't think there are any turbosims for 3+ yet.

    Right. Mine is a 5.8. My friend (the one you just answered the question to about the frozen lockscreen) has 5.9 had to wait for ultrasn0w to get rid of her turbo sim. Lol I hate her phone.

    I was a yellowsn0w user until the release of ultrasn0w.
    I love the Dev Team
    (and conversations with them are always interesting )

    See I would kill anyone that updated my phone...
    We get so many, "my friend updated it!" "My GF thought she was doing me a favor!" etc. over at the Dev Team's blog
    They will when they find one... Hopefully there'll at least be some piggyback sims so we can recommend SOMETHING other than sell your phone...
