Why should you use purplesn0w? From George Hotz:

It’s a soft unlock for your 3GS that I’d actually use day to day. It’s not a daemon that takes any resources, and it doesn’t add a task to your baseband. It’s very close to a true unlock. All it does is patch three files, CommCenter, lockdownd, and your wildcard activation plist(which you need, activate w at&t sim first, no hacktivation support yet).

Remember to back up your data first before trying the unlock. To jailbreak your iPhone 3G S with purplera1n, follow the guide here
