Original as in from the carrier it's locked to? You wouldn't have to unlock then, obviously.

You wasted your money. All that sim card does is get past activation, it doesn't unlock your phone. You didn't say which phone you have, but since you mentioned whited00r (which is illegal and a waste of time, by the way), I assume it's a 3G. If so, you can unlock with redsn0w.

Get redsn0w 0.9.14b2 for Windows or Mac
Connect your iPhone to USB
Unzip and run redsn0w (right-click and choose "run as Administrator if on Windows)
Click Jailbreak
Follow the directions for DFU mode
Select "Install iPad baseband" and "Install cydia" (unless you already have cydia, in which case de-select it)
After that completes, go [back] to the main screen in redsn0w
Click Jailbreak
Follow the instructions for DFU mode
Select ONLY "Downgrade from iPad baseband"
After that completes, open cydia on the iPhone, search for and install ultrasn0w
You should now be unlocked
