Guide: How To Unlock iOS 4 baseband 5.13.04 with Ultrasn0w 0.93 (Also Unlocks All Basebands Since iPhone OS 3.0)
The official ultrasn0w unlock is now available for iOS 4 which works on all basebands including 05.13.04 and 05.12.01 on iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G.
Since there is no jailbreak available yet for iPhone 3GS with new bootrom, you cant unlock it as even though the baseband is unlockable. This is because unlock relies on jailbreak. So if you have an iPhone 3GS with new bootrom and you rely on an unlock, it is best to avoid iOS 4 (formerly iPhone OS 4) for now.
Else, simply follow the guide posted below to unlock your iPhone 3GS (old bootrom, and already pwned on 3.1.2 with anything other than Spirit) and iPhone 3G on any baseband from 04.28.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01 to 05.13.04.

Poor little iPhone 3G. You are my first iPhone, my first smartphone, my first “I got it the day Apple released it” device. I love you so, and yes, I will miss you when you are gone, replaced by the shiny iPhone 4.
Apparently, I was one of the lucky ones.
First off, the iPhone 3G is forsaken by several of iOS 4′s new features (wallpaper, multitasking, etc.). As an added bonus, warranty provider SquareTrade has released a report showing their repair rates on the iPhone 3G and how it compares to the 3GS.
In short: the iPhone 3GS is more reliable than the 3G across the board. I’m guessing this is because the 3GS was an evolution of hardware, so they had a second “model year” to make refinements and changes.
the 3GS had more power and battery related issues in the first year than the 3G did, so it wasn’t flat-out superior hardware. But the 3GS did have less overall trouble in year one the the same period in the 3G’s history.
Some of you might have noticed the annoying 1604, 1600 error when restoring to iOS 4 custom firmware in Tunes which built using PwnageTool 4.0 or 4.01. The error in question looks something on the lines of this.
The iPhone “[your iPhone]” could not be restored. An unknown error occurred.
Going through the comments posted here, I found this fix posted by one of our reader which I thought I should share it with you all. I haven’t tried it because I never got the error, but if you did get the error, let us know if the instructions posted below fixes the issue.
The instructions, as posted by Carlos Leopoldo are as follows.

It’s not hard getting ringtones on your iPhone. You certainly don’t have to buy them. If, however, you’d like something a bit more customized, there is a nice app called AutoRingtone Pro Uncensored.
In a nutshell, it lets you pick out what the ringtone should say. It can be just an announcement about who is calling, like “Your friend Bob is calling from Las Vegas” or it could be a bit more insulting like “Your dumb buddy John from Indianapolis is on the phone”. Basically, it takes what you’ve written and converts your text to speech in a voice you have selected.
Here’s how it works: Type what you want the phone to say into a field. Then choose a voice, like British female, quiet whisper, American male and so on. You can also precede the message with a sound, and there are about 200 to choose from.

When the camera in the iPhone 4 was first announced, I thought sadly of my Flip MinoHD, and how I might never need it again. If my phone can do solid HD video recording, why should I carry another camera around, small as it may be? But can Apple’s phone really deliver solid HD quality in video recording?
