Firmware basically refers to the software your iPhone is running and it is installed using the IPSW file you download from iTunes or using direct links from Apple. Baseband refers to the modem version on your iPhone. This data is only relevant for iPhone and not iPod Touch or iPad obviously. Modem upgrades cannot be restored so please be careful before upgrading your firmware. Here’s a guide which discusses if you Should Upgrade Your iPhone to iOS 4.1?

How to find iPhone Baseband?

First Launch Settings from your iPhone homescreen.

    modem firmware is same as baseband. so your baseband is 2.10.04. this firmware cannot be unlocked right now. you can only jailbreak at the moment.
