You can jailbreak, unlock is tricky. You need to update it to iPad baseband 6.15.00 and use ultrasn0w, but when you update your baseband, you can't restore to a stock IPSW until that IPSW has a baseband version that is greater than or equal to 6.15.00. That meaans if you want to restore or update your iPhone, you need to restore using a custom pwnagetool IPSW.

I know it works with the 6.15.00 baseband but when i did it, i didnt even have to unlock i just ran it over top of my redsnow jailbreak i had before and it worked perfectly fine. when i rebooted i didnt lose anything on my iphone. cydia was thier from the previous jailbreak and it was already unlocked. i have 3gs 4.2.1 6.15.00 baseband with unlock
