I would tend to think within a few weeks of the release of 4.3

have you already jailbroken your iPhone? i think it lets you by-pass the "enter valid sim" screen (not exactly sure though).. u can give it a shot

You need to use redsn0w to hacktivate the phone. It won't be unlocked, but it will activate the phone and allow you to use it.

did you restore to 4.2.1 while tinyumberella was on? If yes then your baseband didn't update... so you will have 4,2,1 and bb 1.59.xx you jailbreak with GP and delete loader app use redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 to install cydia your iphone will be activated without official sim... now download ultrasn0w and unlock it..

good luck

Then currently, you cannot unlock the phone. Rumor has it that @sherif_hashim has a jailbreak that may be released in the near future, but it's just a rumor PLUS with everything going on in Egypt, he may have other things on his mind.
