jailbreaking alone will not unlock your phone. you will either have to have it unlocked by your carrier or a differtn 3rd party program or company. which unless im wrong is now illeagl as of 1/26/13

Software and hardware altering unlocks is now illegal in the USA for devices purchased on or after 1/26/13

IMEI unlocking is still legal as it does not alter the device. (at least this is my understanding)

As Curly420 said, its for the device that is purchase on or after 1/26/2013 right?

Right, but there are still no hacks for your phone. You must ask the carrier or purchase an imei unlock from a reputable source

I would recommend @Chronic's Unlocking Service if want to unlock without fulfilling your contract and/or your carrier doesn't allow unlocking. I hope I'm allowed to put a link to his website. I'll remove it if I can't. and twitter, @Chronic. It is illegal, though, to unlock your phone yourself if you are in the USA, as stated above.

You can always Factory Unlock your device through a business offering IMEI unlocks.

  1. Ultrasn0w is a unlocking tweak, not a app, so there will be no app there.
  2. It doesn't currently support 6.0.
  3. You have to have a certain baseband for it to work. Edit: Also, ask a question by clicking on the "ask a question" button above, instead of submitting your question as a answer.
