    what firmware was your phone?

    look in the guide section it has many unlocking guides

    or check out idemocracy
    http://code.google.com/p/idemocracy/

    youll have to reinstall any applications but your themes should still be saved if you used summerboard just reinstall it and depending on how you restored your phone they may still be there and if you sync with itunes it should restore contacts etc. from the last time you sync'd

    um im not sure what you need but ithink your asking for step by step how to so here it is
    things you need
    1. you will need a wifi connection (wireless internet)
    2. download firmware 1.1.1 http://modmyi.com/forums/downloads.p...=1355&act=down
    3. iphone/computer wire/computer (the commoun since things)
    4. idemocracy http://code.google.com/p/idemocracy/
    5. itunes
    6.original at&t sim in phone(im not 100% sure you need this but some people have problems without it so if you have it just put it in untill you finish unlocking your phone)

    ok here goes you (you will lose any information on you phone but itunes may restore some of it worse case you have to start over but you get your phone back so..)
    1.plug your phone to the computer open itunes
    2.turn on you phone hold the sleep and home button untill the screen goes blank wait 2 seconds and let go of the sleep button but hold the home button untill itunes says phone in recovery mode
    3.hold shift and press restore then find where you saved the 1.1.1 firmware and select it let phone restore (you may get an error didnt work but it did and your phone may still be in recovery mode if idemocracy doesnt reboot it download ibrickr and run it only to get your phone out of recovery mode)
    4. close itunes and open idemocracy
    5.click jailbreak+extras then click short wifi-less method(you will need wifi)
    6. follow the directions in the top box. pressing the right arrow next to (copy lines) to go through the steps. click yes to anysim!
    7. your phone should be back to life

    let me know if you need help with any of those steps o and never update unless you follow a guide from this site that says it is ok to do so for unlocked phones
