Umm. Where did my reply go? Anyway, what is your modem firmware? Why are you restoring to a custom ipsw? Do you need unlock? Basing from your serial number, that is a newer production 3Gs which may brick if you install iPad baseband.

From your serial number xx136, it means your device was made 36th week of 2011. You cannot install iPad basbenad to be able to unlock on this device. Install iPad baseband will fry the baseband chip which then can be fixed only by physically changing the baseband chip. Sorry there is just no way to unlock that unless through official carrier unlocking. If its from at&t, they do not offer carrier unlocking.

From my list, telus is one of the few carriers in canada that does not offer carrier unlocking, but I could be wrong. Call them.
