There is no point in speculation as no public jailbreak exists for the iPhone 5 at this time. You can however still "activate" any iPhone without the original sim card by using a programmable sim card which is the method we ( currently use.

Most likely not. Hacktivation requires a bootrom exploit. We will know when evasi0n is out.
