    I just purchased and activated my iPhone 3Gs, and activated it through ATT.

    It has 3.1 already installed... I have read everywhere that it is possible, and it isnt possible?

    I heard its not possible if it hasn't been activated. I heard it is possible if it wasn't upgraded from 3.0.

    Whats the deal?

    Thanks in advance

    There is no jailbreak method for *stock* 3.1 (yet)
    Current 3.1 JB requires that you have 3.0 or 3.0.1 installed and jailbroken. You HAVE to upgrade from a jailbroken OS to a custom (pre-jailbroken) OS. Only words of encouragement I can offer you for stock 3.1 JB is to keep your eye on blackra1n. Hopefully the Dev Team won't be too far behind geohot with an updated redsn0w or something that can JB stock 3.1

    There is no unlock method for the 5.whatever baseband (indefinitely)

    I suggest you read this
    Dev-Team Blog - Future-proofing the 3GS jailbreak
    particularly this part
    NOTE #1: the carrier sim unlock is a different story. Jailbreaking and unlocking have two different security mechanisms, and if you update your 3GS (or 3G) to 3.1, you will lose your carrier unlock, possibly forever. Even if you downgrade from 3.1 to 3.0, you will have lost your carrier unlock. So if you think you’ll ever want to carrier unlock your 3G or 3GS (or maybe give it away or resell it later as an unlockable iPhone), then please stay clear of all official Apple IPSWs. You’ll soon be able to create custom 3.1 IPSWs using PwnageTool that let you pre-hack your 3.1 update in a way that preserves the carrier unlock.

    If you are referring to appuloha1l, geohot already admitted to making that up for some chuckles.

    I didn't upgrade to 3.1, my phone came pre-installed with it.

    I don't know if that makes a difference or not. Whatever the case may be, I think it'll just be time before we get an unlock. I have never heard of ANY GSM phone, not being unlocked one way or another.

    There has to be an easier way to get information we need....

    That appuloha dude, does he claim to have an unlock? I don't care about jailbreaking, but I need this thing to work on T-Mobile.

    Anyone?

    You're really confused. He bought the domain to "cut them off at the pass"...he's simply directing that comment at them to let them know that they won't be able to use the domain name to distribute their software.
