Taking US iPhone 3GS on ios 5 to use in Peru

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an AT&T iPhone 3GS that I upgraded to ios 5 immediately upon release (because I'm the impatient sort). Now I have my 4S and don't need the 3GS anymore, and a friend wants to take it to use permanently in Peru with her SIM card from down there, is this possible at this point? She's even less technologically inclined than I am, so the other part of the question would have to be how difficult it would be to keep it working once there?
Thanks

Unlock it. And hope Peru uses the right wavelengths.

I guess part of the issue is that I don't fully understand everything about unlocking, does it have to be jailbroken to unlock, or is there a way to unlock without jailbreaking? If it has to be jailbroken, how much is involved in doing a tethered reboot (I could probably figure out how to do it, but the user likely wouldn't, so I'm more wondering how much of a hassle she would have?)
Thanks

The former.

Couple button presses in the right application.
