You can however upgrade your baseband to the iPad one (6.15.00) and unlock it...

...and you will forever have to use a custom ipsw if you ever need to restore your phone since apple have stopped supporting the 3G with firmware updates...

By using the iPad baseband you run the risk of losing your gps, though some have reported loss of gps not every one has so you might not lose gps. But it seems to be your only option or you can wait for developers to maybe unlock the latest iPhone 3G baseband. You lose nothing from trying. If you lose gps and dont like it you can always restore.

Restoring won't help get your gps back if you do have problems as you've updated the baseband past the 4.2.1 version anyway. So you will always be on the iPad baseband unless apple decide to release a baseband for the 3G above 6.15.00 as you can't downgrade basebands...
