    What do you see for network on the top above "Available". You cannot tell whether a device is unlocked or not until you put in an originally unsupported SIM and testing it out, or if the network currently on the device does not match that of the carrier that's listed, and there's proof that the device is fully working.

    It's an iPhone 3G, so the 4.2.1 that's already on it is up to date for the device. Jailbreaking is up to you. The only problem that I would say you'd face is that you're slightly constraint in RAM, processing speed and more importantly iOS. Most tweaks require iOS 5 and above to run, though there are still quite a few iOS 4 supporting or universally supporting tweaks that you can use.
