There are only few unlock services who offer unlock without the jailbreak for an iPhone model.I too availed my unlock from such a third party unlock, and permanently unlocked my phone through their remote unlock service. With their free unlock instructions I was able to unlock the phone very easily.This works with updated baseband and does not cause any interruption when we update in future.The unlock will remain.

if you're on an unjailbroken 05.16.05 3GS and want to unlock, do I first have to jailbreak and upgrade to the iPad baseband then jailbreak again with this process to downgrade to 05.13.04? Thanks in advance. resume writing service reviews

somehow I managed to flash 06.15 baseband from 05.16 on my 3GS, but any attempt to downgrade 06.15 to 05.13 ends with a redsn0w message "the connected device doesn't support untethered options". any idea what could it be and whether there is any runaround would be greatly appreciated

Great tutorial thank you for you hard work. How ever I can not get my 3gs to downgrade. I have tried just about every version of redsn0w with every possible firmware. currently stuck with iOS 4.1(8b117) with baseband 06.15.00 my phone is bell 3GS Model MC637C and serial 86023F0UEDG. Currently unlocked and jailbroken with redsn0w latest and ultrasn0w latest. I haave been pulling my hair out for a week now. I can reinstall the 06.15.00 with no issues and everything seems to work fine including the gps?? but when I try to downgrade redsn0w starts the exploit then crashes saying downgrade failed?? Anyone have any ideas?

I'm having the same issue as Redtowner. I have a factory unlocked 3GS (serial ---947) with baseband 15.16.08 and want to downgrade my baseband back to 5.13 so I can get my imessage and picture messaging capability back and so my signal will stop spazzing. Anyone offer any advice?
