    yes, all 3G iphones can be unlocked
    DONT UPDATE IT
    if its pre iOS4 then KEEP IT THAT WAY
    if its on 4.2.1 you will need to change the baseband
    Use redsn0w to jailbreak it (and change it to iPad BB if necessary). then use ultrasn0w to unlock it.
    do some googling, type in, "Unlock iPhone 3G ______ (iOS Version)" and you should get some results. GL
