    You can but will have to install a more complicated hack that will update your iphones baseband to the ipads version and you will most likelly lose your GPS functionality.
    If you're up for it follow this:

    Will there ever be a better way without using iPad baseband or perhaps using limera1n

    Limerain is a JB not an unlock hack.
    Not sure if The Dev team will release a newer or better unlock but I think they're now working on the iphone 4 unlock.

    For iphone 3G is always untethered.
    Tethered for now is just the i4 and new bootrom 3GS.

    Make sure you checked updated to ipad baseband if you want to unlock.
