That might be the most confusing posts i've ever read. What exactly is the problem?

If you remember the errors it gave (the numbers) I can help you with solving them :)  (and change the title to something relevant).

So, you aren't factory unlocked if a restore wiped out your unlock. 

That means I need to know your baesband first before anything else, so if you follow the steps here using F0recast to find out your baseband:
WD 6: Tips to Quickly Solve your Problems/Bugs & Get Answers FAST!

After you get back to me with that I can point you in the right direction :)

I have a iphone 3g and I used the unlocked whited00r iphone 3g firmware to restore it the firmware went through but I have the (searching.....) problem I have a UNACTIVATED tmobile sim card in it just to see if the phone was unlocked I put the sim card in and it didn't say unrecognized sim or anything so im guessing its unlocked but it still says searching how do I get rid of the( searching...) I plan on putting on a different carrier soon

Modem firmware it says : 05.15.04

 if any other information is needed just reply and I will give you guys the information you need from the phone im new to this "Jailbreaking" stuff sorry.

*It now is jailbroken since I used the whited00r unlocked*

What you need to do is follow this tutorial:
Tutorial - Downgrade Baseband iPhone 3G

Which will downgrade your baseband to an unlockable one (05.13.04).  You may not get the blank baseband like the tutorial says, but that is okay. As long as you have 05.13.04 or lower you can use whited00r unlocked :)
