You can jailbreak it with no issue, you can not unlock it though since it has a baseband that is currently not unlock-able.

Is there any way around it? I heard that you can do it with version 3 (jailbreak and unlock.) But then again, i also read that ver 3 is still Beta and it's unadvisable. I'm a newbie to iphone. Can you explain to me what exactly does Jailbreak do?

Nope, no way around it. As for 3.0 and jailbreaking - I've heard rumors (no word from the dev team so it seems sketchy) but the last thing I'd want is 3.0 in it's beta form jailbroken.
