Jailbreaking your iPhone will free it from the restrictions that are imposed on it by Apple. After jailbreaking you can unlock the iPhone using Redsn0w. Recent news of jailbreaks and unlocks for the iPhone are announced almost every day. An update to Redsn0w allows you to jailbreak the iPhone 4/3G/3Gs.
