    Yes. Jailbreak first, then get yellowsn0w from Cydia, and it should work 95% perfect.

    Something to keep in mind though:

    # Yellowsn0w will NOT work with the baseband version (02.30.03) that is present in the recent 2.2.1 update. If you want to use Yellownsn0w you will need to create and restore using a custom .ipsw that will allow you to update safely to 2.2.1 without applying the 02.30.03 baseband update. You’ll then have a 3G iPhone running 2.2.1 with an older baseband version that is still vulnerable to yellowsn0w, following these steps ensures that yellowsn0w will still operate.

    As long as the phone you get isn't with the FW 2.2.1 (or it's baseband hasn't been upgraded), then you can unlock.
    If the phone was updated to Firmware 2.2.1 through iTunes, then you can not unlock the phone through yellowsn0w, and might not ever be able to.

    I believe so, yes. That is if it's brand new from Apple.

    Though there may be other ways to unlock it, such as getting a sim card to fake your iPhone which would cost you $30-50.
