    It doesn't looks like a legally unlocked iPhone to me

    am sorry to say this, but I think u got scammed. This message only appears on carrier locked iphones, and not originally unlocked ones.
    However u can jailbreak it and unlock it using yellosn0w, if and only if it is running on firmware 2.2 and NOT 2.2.1, i.e the modem fimrware is 02.28.00 and not 02.30.03. If ur lucky, then the device would be running on 2.2 or lower, if that is the case then simply DFU restore to 2.2 then jailbreak and use yellosn0w to unlock it, but if it is running on 2.2.1 then u would have to wait for the 02.30.03 modem to be unlocked.
    Guides on DFU restoring/unlocking/jailbreaking can be found on this forum. Visit the yellowsn0w section under iPhone 3G for instructions on using yellosn0w to unlock the baseband, and use the search function for information on how to DFU restore and jailbreak using quickpwn.

    Cheers and good luck

    Find your iPhones Part Numbers on this page & you will know the factory state of lock/unlock.
