    You can Jail Break but not unlock yet, it will be coming very soon.

    But with that in mind, you can unlock a 3gs FW 4.1 IF YOU HAVE USED PWNAGE TOOL, what this does is let u upgrade from lets say3.1.3 to 4.1 and IT WILL NOT UPGRADE YOUR BASEBAND, if you have already upgraded then you will have to wait.

    The unofficial version of PwnageTool for iOS 4.1 on iPhone 3GS has been released. It can jailbreak iPhone 3GS (with old bootrom only) using iOS 4.1 custom FW. For those of you who don’t know, PwnageTool for Mac enables iPhone users to upgrade to the new firmware without upgrading the baseband, hence making it possible to jailbreak and UNLOCK the phone using the Ultrasn0w software. This VERSION OF PWNAGE TOOL unfortunately doesn’t support hacktivation, so you will have to either use officially supported SIM, or the PHONEBOOK SIM CARD METHOD to activate the phone before unlocking it with Ultrasn0w.
    I hope this clarifies your issue, but it will be out soon. I suggest NEVER UPDATE TILL YOU KNOW WHAT IS AVAILABLE FOR YOU.

    Sooner, I bought the phone from a friend at work. Its only about a month old. He update the OS before he sold it to me. I don't know if he have bootrom, etc saved on his computer. "Don't think he will know what it is"

    I am currently using the phone with wifi for web browsing, etc. Do you know why mine is on the home screen, where as my son when he got his 2g it was on the plug into Itunes homescreen

    You may possibly need to put a workin SIM in. That would be my first attempt.

    What I'm trying to find is why would my phone not be on the connect to Itunes homescreen like my sons. Is perhaps unlocked or jailbroken or something?

    You have to verify that THE SIM card is verified to iTunes. Since you have no SIM thats why it wont connect. Get a SIM card!!!

    The connect to iTunes screen you see is the activation screen. When your friend gave you the phone he had already "activated" it meaning he had already connected it to iTunes with an at&t sim card. With you being on the home screen you are ok to put an at&t sim in and start using the phone. At this point it won't care if your account is prepaid or contract (although if you try to use the internet over the cellular network it will) to make phone calls.

    Hi,

    Before you can connect to iTunes there some things you have to do first. Here is a complete instructional from Apple.
