In which case the only solution is to get the US carrier to unlock it
As it is a iPhone 3G I imagine it is locked to AT&T
If you friend was the previous user on AT&T with the iPhone
get him to call AT&T and see if they would be willing to unlock the iPhone
if possible as if he still has the iPhone
I would also suspect you would not meet AT&T's criteria for unlocking
your friend may well still qualify

The phone is locked to AT&T. Contact AT&T. No one here or at Apple can do anything about it.

It gives me the following message:The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported. This iPhone is not currently setup to work with carrier you're attempting to use. Please insert another SIM card from a supported carrier or request that this iPhone be unlocked.

If it's from the US, then the only carrier it can be locked to is AT&T. You will need to contact them and ask about having it unlocked.

Thanks for the response Mr. Gillespie. It looks like it is locked to a US carrier....
