    Do you need to unlock the phone? If no, updating to 4.2.1 could be a tethered JB if you phone doesn't have the old bootrom. If you don't know what I am talking about regarding "tethered" and "old vs new bootrom, time to do so googling.

    If YES to unlocking, you will have to update to 4.2.1 and use iPad 6.5 baseband to unlock. Should definitely read up on the disadvantage doing that before deciding to go ahead. And, thale part above about possible tethered JB still applies.
