    It's depend on which model of the 3gs that he has. If it's the latest with Toshiba chipset, he can't downgrade the baseband with Redsn0w. Otherwise, it's possible.

    You can use iH8sn0w's tool (iDetector) to verify if baseband is flashable or not at his blog:


    Good luck

    Of course it won't accept any other SIM if it's locked to somewhat carrier. There must be the original SIM to activacate, unless you've got to facotry unlock it which will make it accept any SIM.
    Contact me to "factory unlock" any iPhone!
