So as we all know you need a micro SIM for the Iphone 4, what is the quickest and easiest way to convert a SIM to a micro Sim.
And are there any ways to unlock the Iphone 4 with the newest OS and newest base band?

Easiest? Go to your carrier and ask for a microsim. If your carrier doesn't support the microsim, then just cut it yourself, there's some guides on the internet and here's even printable cutouts so you know WHERE you need to cut so you don't mess up the SIM.

Currently there is no unlock for the iPhone 4 running 4.2.1 on the latest baseband. The latest unlock for the iPhone 4 is baseband 01.59.00 and that came with 4.0.1 I believe. So you will have to wait a bit if you're getting a brand new iPhone 4 to unlock it.

There's also the problem that a jailbreak for 4.2.1 isn't quite out yet. They're currently working on a Beta which has it's bugs, but it should all be cleared out within a week or two.

Can it be unlocked via a shop, that you would pay a small fee for, or is that completely blocked too?

That is only if you bought it internationally. There's also the fact that only some carriers do will do that for you, and then there's a chance that you also need to be OFF a contract for them to legally be able to unlock your phone.
