If your phone was previously jailbroken, it may now be physically impossible to legitimately unlock it.
Jailbroken phones can not be discussed here per the terms of service.
You have most likely permanently bricked your phone. Buy a new legitimately unlocked phone.

Kilted Tim, thanks for your fast reply. Fortunately for me, its not quite as dire as that, and it isn't bricked at all... but it cannot, without any new ideas from the community, progress beyond OS 4.1. All functions work properly, otherwise.
I have read what you wrote on other postings here, but not on any official (apple or AT&T) source. Have you? If not, perhaps there is a way.

Google might be your friend here but Apple nor AT&T are going to make a statement regarding unlocking after jailbreaking your iPhone nor provide any assistance to you. From everything I have read so far if you do not get the message the first time you try to restore you may never get it.

So, you don't know. You could just say that, if you have to say something. It is ok if you don't know the answer to every question or aren't allowed to say. it didn't seem like a personal question.
In spite of that, I am not on my own, just without your advice. So far, that's no worse off than before, aside from an unpleasant exchange with a stranger.

Read the terms of service. We can NOT help you. It doesn't matter whether I, or anyone else, know exactly how to fix it. The fact is, your phone was jailbroken. It is unsupportable.
It is also a fact that jailbroken phones may become bricks if you attempt to unlock them.
Don't blame the messenger.
