iPhone 3Gs official unlock problem

I had my iPhone 3Gs working for about the day it was released and it’s officially unlocked but when i updated my iphone to 4.3 beta firmware it worked fair enough with some buggy problems that weren’t bothering me that much, after i have used it for a week all of a sudden my edge network stop working i restarted my iphone and boot it up back a again many time but with no luck. Therefore i decided to restore my iPhone to the same firmware by clicking “option” and tabbing on “Check for update” on my Mac to brows for the firmware that i have downloaded. i waited for my iphone to be restored and i was surprised that it didn’t boot up to iphone’s main menu but all i can see is the iphone’s screen that instructs me to plug the USB and all i can do is to make emergency calles in that menu.

How can i unlock my iphone without jailbreaking it because i went to a shop and they told me we have to jailbreak your iphone to make it work since it not officially unlocked but i am very sure that i have bought it officially unlocked. how can i fix this problem?
My iphone has to be officially unlocked to use it as an GSM phone and that is exactly what i want to do, i do not want to jailbreak

Note: i have downloaded 4.3 update via torrent
“iPhone2,1_4.3_8F5148b_Restore”

Okay, you have downloaded a beta firmware for your phone from an unreliable source. This is asking for trouble.
Restore your phone to the original firmware it came with and see if that works for you.

I can only do that when i jailbreak it because itunes won’t let me restore or update my iphone.

I’ll do that when i jailbreak my iphone to be recognized by itunes.

I have to find the 4.2.1 official update.

I don’t want to download the update from any other sauce beside apple.

I know what does it mean and to be part of the developer programe i have to pay 99/year.

I did restore it and it didn’t work and i can’t restore it any more if this menu keep showing up each time i plug in my iphone.
