There's a big 3G iphone thread where this question has been answered many times.

Short answer is no - the stores in the US will look for you to sign a contract and will not let you out of the store without one.

Straight out of the box - no it won't. You will need a SIM adaptor to 'unlock' the simlock. See here. I have used one of these for months now without issue whatsoever.
