Key combination could be different.

Try all the possibilities (home + power is mine)

I've got an Optus SGS, can confirm they haven't locked it.

Vol Down + Power + Home worked for me.

It won't start, I used the adb.exe to put it into download mode, and tried flashing it! And I think I had a bad flash. Now it won't even start!

OK take the battery out as i said, put it back in, then hold the power button for a few (2-3) seconds and wait like 10 seconds and see if anything is happening

If not take the battery out again and try the Power, Vol Down, and Home for a few seconds and wait

I had difficulties at first too
