How to fix some mysterious problems.

I would like to unlock my old Iphone 3g, which I bought in the US with ATnT, so I can use it in Europe.

Is it necessary to save the Baseband with tiny umbrella before going ahead with the jailbrake using greenpoison? Or can I just go ahead with the jailbrake and then I can directly use any sim card on the phone?

By the way: My contract with ATnT is finished. would I be able to sim unlock the phone by just restoring it?

download redsn0w 0.9.6 rc 8 and the 4.2.1 firmware check install cydia and iPad baseband. Once this is done download greenposi0n rc6 run greenposion and this will untether the jailbreak. Last download ultrasn0w from cydia

You can only unlock your 3G by upgrading to the ipad baseband using Redsn0w 0.9.6, however, I wouldn't recommend it as you will lose gps and may have other issues, but for some people I guess there is no option if they want service on thier iphone, the baseband you currently have is not unlockable. The Dev Team are apparently looking at developing a baseband downgrade (no ETA) for those that have taken the ipad baseband.
