    The only way you could unlock that is updating your baseband to the iPad one using redsnow 0.9.6b6. There are a few drawbacks though.

    iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak and Unlock Your iPhone 3GS Using RedSn0w (Windows) [4.2.1]

    The drawbacks are:
    If you are new bootrom the jailbreak is tethered right now
    gps may break
    you wont be able to restore to regular firmware anymore, you will have to use custom firmware.
