iphone 3GS sim card lock

would welcome any advise...

during spring cleaning i found my old iphone 3GS (bought in msia).

powering up the phone looks good until i did a master reset via itunes, after reset now i am unable to setup my iphone due to SIM card not supported.

i googled around, and found that the old 3GS has a sim card lock function by the telco (mine was Hotlink). but now i am in SG and there is no network.

anyone knows how do i unlock the phone to be able to use in Singapore?

so far i went around the shops and service providers and the only solution i got was to either jailbreak or to go back to Hotlink and ask them to unlock for a fee.

Get or borrow a hotlink sim. Cheapest option if u just want to use it as an iPod. Apple only checks for the network of the sim, u don't even need the sim to be active.

If u want to use it as a phone, can ask hotlink to unlock. Most of the jailbreak tools for 3GS are outdated.
