You need to change the baseband to the iPad baseband which is 6.15 or so I'm not sure if they have a tutorial here but you can always google it up for example unlock iPhone. 3G with iPad baseband

yes the problem i have there is that when i use redsn0w to do the jailbreak redsn0w just crashes everytime half way thru the reboot of the phone ,ive tried several different versions and ran in admin but just the same,so i have to make a custom ipsw for the 3g and restore it thru itunes,or does anybody know of a custom ipsw with the ipad baseband files already built inlink for download? many thanks

May I suggest as I noticed your device was a 3G model
Google: whited00r
They make custom firmware for older devices so you get all features of ios 5 that obviously as you know you can't update to as a bonus they are also jailbroken as standard also...
You get two options to download normal version or unlocked (hacktivated) firmware version

My friend has a iPhone 2G (original) and running this and tbh it's pretty cool and doesn't slow your phone down at all

I personally recommend this for you you will get more than you bargained for :)

hi

it all depends on the modem firmware on your phone some are unlockable and some aren't ,you could also try your network provider when you get back home to see if they will unlock it for you,but for a definate answer could you post the modem firmware number on here and im sure someone could help you out cheers
