your service provider will do it for you at a cost.

02 will unlock an iPhone for free, (or at least they did)

Usually, after 12 months of owning the contract phone, the service provider gives the unlock code for free.

I can confirm the above, if it is on contract, 02 will unlock for free after 12 months. If it is PAYG, 02 will unlock it for a fee of £15. I did this with my 3g a while ago on PAYG - had to wait a couple of weeks but it was quite painless in the end (and it worked!)
