Our beloved iPhone Dev Team is working hard on an unlock solution for iPhone 3G. As iClarified reported, you should expect the unlock solution will be released soon. The unlock solution will be rolled out in several batches. The 1st release will cover unlock for iPhone with the 01.45.00 baseband. Then follow by unlock solution for the 02.11.07 baseband.

For your reference, here is a list of the iPhone firmware versions and their matching basebands:

- 2.0.0 Firmware & 01.45.00 Baseband
- 2.0.1 Firmware & 01.48.02 Baseband
- 2.0.2 Firmware & 02.08.01 Baseband
- 2.1.0 Firmware & 02.11.07 Baseband
- 2.2.0 Firmware & 02.28.00 Baseband

So, if you’re using lower version of firmware, you’ll get a first chance to unlock iPhone 3G for free.
