    I have recently purchased an iphone 3G with updated baseband which was previously used with AT&T. I have jailbroken the phone with custom 3.1 firmware but haven't unlocked it yet.

    I heard that 3G supports any sim card from at&t if it was previously registered with at&t. I tried using another at&t sim card but it did not work.

    Please atleast let me know whether it was supposed to work or not with any at&t sim card or it's because of the updated baseband and FW?

    What do you mean by newer sim cards? Sorry but I didn't get the answer.

    How do I know whether the sim that I tried is newer??

    Some of the older sims +3 years ago do not seem to work. Most of the time it will work with your sim

    I have used the both and tried using 2-3 ATT sim cards but it doesnt detect any signal. Is their any unlocking for the sim also that we have to do??
    I mean are the at&t sim cards locked for the device that we get it for??

    Simcards are not locked to specific devices. You should be able to stick your sim in any AT&T phone and have it work. I swap between my iPhone and a Sony phone when my iPhone gives me issues.
