    Two things I will assume; she updated to 3.1 and this is a 3G?

    Both of those being so you are pretty much SOL. You can still JB the iPhone but the ability to unlock it is now gone. As of now there is not much you can do. In the future there will probably be a downgrade for the baseband or another way to unlock it. Until that happens you have an iPod with a camera!

    the first screen is either incorrect carrier and therefore u need an unlock to use it, or your sim card is not 3G. This is exactly what has happened to me, my sim card is 2g and i refuse to buy a 3g sim card for 40$ because its perfectly fine except for stupid itunes refusing to activate my iphone.. in my case you also need an unlock for it to work unfortunatly... hopefully an unlock will come soon

    You're out of luck!
    If your mom upgraded the firmware to the latest firmware, then you won't be able to hack/unlock it.

    You can easily get it past that screen but my point being was that you can't unlock the phone and use it with an unofficial carrier (at least not for now).
