My particular field of expertise is iOS Jailbreaking and Unlocking.

Are you doing it correctly? 9 out of 10 users with this same problem are in Recovery Mode thinking that the device is in DFU mode. To make sure that your device is in DFU mode, download the latest version of RedSn0w, which is 0.9.15 beta 3 and run it as an administrator. Stay at this home screen. Plug your device in and put it into DFU mode. Once you've done that, look at the bottom of the home screen of the RedSn0w application and it should say "iPhone 3G (DFU mode)" This signifies DFU mode. If it says you're in Recovery Mode, you're in recovery mode. RedSn0w never lies. Also, did you by any chance flash your iPhone to the iPad baseband to unlock using UltraSn0w
