Need to unlock simlock

I have an iphone 3g v2.2.1 with modem firmware 02.30.03 I do alot of travelling and want to be able to use any sim from another countries network to avoid roaming charges. Is there any way to get a sim unlock,either a code or software unlock? Ive used the hardware rebel sims but find that they are not reliable 100% of the time. What can i do???? I look forward to hearing from you, CW

Sorry bro.. as of now, there are no known software unlock tool out of the market. Right now, there's only two ways to unlock your phone. 1st one is to use the rebel sim like what you did. The second one is to have your phone legally unlocked by the provider which will probably cost you alot...

Do not trust websites that offer unlocking of your iphone 3g because these websites are probably fake and they only want to steal your money.

The only iphone that can be unlocked by software is the iPhone 2g (1st gen iphone)

I hope this helps. Have a good one

I'd appreciate if you would give me a fixya rating for this one. thanks alot!

Iphone 3G

Was your iphone unlocked? If so, the software update has broken your unlock. Phones that have recently been updated in iTunes to firmware 3.1.3 cannot be re-unlocked, so they can only be used with AT&T SIM cards at this time. Also, without an AT&T SIM iTunes will not connect with the phone again. You need to wait for the unlock for 3.1.3, you can read more at:

Iphone 3g 8gb Officially unlocked sim error problem

the new sim card is connected with having an iphone account. when you say it is officially unlocked.
does this mean that AT&T unlocked your phone?
what i think your saying is that if you have 2 sim cards, one that is in use and the other is a spare you cannot use both. at the same time.
the sims are standalone, to use a spare sim it has to be activated by the carrier, thus disabling your original sim.
when you change sims you will need to reboot the phone that will not change.
