    There is no unlock for 4.2.1 and its associated baseband at this time. Unlocks are always free.

    To unlock your phone you have to first jailbreak it and then use the ultrasn0w unlock in cydia. The Jailbreak is available today from greenpo1son web site for free.

    Follow musclenerd on twitter to see when the unlock is released but expected soon.

    The only one that can unlock your phone today is Orange France but not sure how to do this if you are not in France

    Apple's site lists http://iphone.orange.fr/ for support.

    Same place also lists Orange as a carrier that unlocks the iPhone. As far as I know, when the carrier unlocks the phone, it's permanent, but I could be mistaken. This form of unlock is, however, definitely independent of BB versions, unlike a jailbroken unlock.

    I hope they can do this for you :)

    At http://iphone.orange.fr/preferez-orange.html

    there is a number to call to subscribe to Orange-France, (going with google translate here!) you can try calling that number ( 0800830800 ) and see if they can help direct you were you need to go.
