Can I buy a new 3G iPhone at an Apple store and unlock it for T-Mobile at home?

Question by Dana S: Can I buy a new 3G iPhone at an Apple store and unlock it for T-Mobile at home?
I think I may have heard somewhere that you can only unlock/jailbreak the 1st generation of the iPhone. Is this true?

I have T-Mobile and am trying to steer clear of buying a used iPhone from eBay. Any other tutorial sites/links? How in-depth is the unlocking process?

You can unlock & jailbreak the new 3g iPhone, I have done it myself and it runs great.

Although getting the phone is probably the hardest part, you are going to have to find a way to get it outside of AT&T as they wont let you walk out the door with one without starting a contract.

If you already have one though, all you need is a program to jailbreak/activate it, then get a SIM-Card Adapter for your SIM and you will be on the T-Mobile network.

However you also cannot use the 3G network but I dont care anyways as I have Wifi whereever I go so thats faster to me.
