    More than likely; NO (at least not yet).

    If it is an older 3G it might still have the 5.08 bootloader and then you can unlock it. Check Cydia (assuming it is Jailbroken) for an app to check the bootloader and it will either be 5.08, 5.09, or 6.02. If you have 5.08 you can downgrade the baseband and unlock the phone. If you are on either of the other two you are SOL and might want to look into a "Turbo SIM" or wait until 3.0 is officially released and the DevTeam works their magic with YellowSn0w.

    With that info it isn't able to be unlocked. Best bet like DrewGzy said is to get a turbo sim. Actually that is the only way to do it with that iPhone. I recommend the Gevey 3G. My friend has it (bootloader 5.09, FW 2.21, BB 2.30) and it works just fine. Some minor reception issues sometimes but not enough to cause major frustration.
