    if it has winterboard then that would suggest to me that it is already unlocked, try another sim.
    if not then download blackra1n, ( yes its spelt like that ) this will jailbreak and unlock it.
    if your wanting to update the firmware, dont go to the latest ( 3.1.3 ) you will loose your ability to be jailbroken and unlocked, ( well not entirly true but it makes life alot harder ) and as you dont sound very iphone friendly so to speek then only go up to 3.1.2.
    cydia is a fantastic way of downloading stuff for free and personalising your iphone.

    here is a link for blackra1n http://blackra1n.com/ its so simple to use its untrue, just activate it, use your iphones lead to connect to pc ( dont allow itunes to open ) and when prompted press make it rain.

    Ive used the winterboard and it lets me change the themes and wallpapers etc ,the phone will come up with vodafone and the signal ok but says please insert the correct sim card for the carrier.Ive tried black rain but on my pc i just get a windows error message every time and on my laptop it flags up my virus warning and brings up an error about an invalid path what ever that means .

    there is no a jailbreak for 3.1.3 so should be fine to update to that then unlock and jailbreak

    Hypothetically speaking, you could after checking if your iphone is compatible, upgrade to 313 firmware within itunes which is latest atm, then use Snowbreeze to jailbreak the firmware, then within cydia use Fuzzyband to lower the baseband to below 512 to 4 something, then also within cydia use Ultrasnow to unlock the handset.

    I may have seen this done before, do I need to hint anymore.

    The most important thing to do is "READ THE LINK" above, dont ask anymore as I cant advise hypthetically further for obvious reasons, just "READ" then it should become clear.
