unlocking an iPhone 3Gs in Germany to use with a simyo SIM card (or any other for that matter)

UPDATE: THIS WORKED!!! deutsche telekom / apple unlocked the phone 
with simyo there is one final step to activate your 3G which they do not (do a very good job of) tell(ing) you about - you have to go into 
settings >cellular data> and enter:
username: simyo
password: simyo 

my friend gave
me her old iPhone 3G and coincidentally it worked with my telekom CallYa pay-as-you go SIM -
but this obvious wasn't ideal since if you turn the data on it will eath through yout guthaben super quick - so I signed up for a simyo SIM karte not thinking too much about it perhaps NOT working in this phone - but sure enough when I put it in it said "no service" and then after I reset the settings and turned the airplafce mode on and off it simply just said "invaild SIM"
soooo after a lot of online research and a few "duh" moments I figured out that because the phone was older than 2 years that the contract had run out and I could apply to have it unlocked -
here is that link: iPhone entsperren

so, if that works 
you get a confirmation message with the following instructions
(which I google translated adn then lightly corrected
original German also posted - scroll below) :

2 Start the Restore (iPhone to the factory settings).
3 You receive a warning message in iTunes that your iPhone has been successfully unlocked - if you have not inserted a SIM card of Telekom.

If this method is not successful, proceed as follows:
1 Turn off your iPhone.
2 Hold down the home button and close at the same time the iPhone is connected to the USB connector to your computer. Here, the computer must be installed and started iTunes. Then iTunes should start automatically - if does not happen, start iTunes manually.
3 Keep the home button pressed further appears to USB icon, then let this man go.
