    You can't unlock it. What is your bootloader version?

    do i need to jailbreak it to find the bootloader?
    that what i see around as instructions. haven't done it yet, as for me unlock is more important than jailbreak. no need for jailbreaking without unlocking...

    if i have the right bootloader can i downgrade and unlock, or no chance?

    A very small amount of 3G phones have the 05.08 (5.8) bootloader which means that the baseband is downgradable on those. The baseband version is what determines if you can unlock or not.

    You can check which bootloader you have by using f0recast and you don't have to be jailbroken to do that.

    Then indeed you are one of the lucky few

    To downgrade the baseband, you just need to be jailbroken, doesn't matter which tool you use (redsn0w will be fine, pwnagetool as well). Then install Fuzzyband and run it. Click the downgrade and it'll take your baseband to 04.26.08 which, as you said yourself, is unlockable with ultrasn0w.

    Good to hear it worked out for you hold on to that phone, it's somewhat valuable as it's forever guaranteed jailbreakable and unlockable.
