I want to carrier unlock my phone, will the new jailbreak be able to do this?

The short answer is no.

You may be better off trying one of these IMEI unlock services, but even those mostly only work for AT&T locked phones. If yours is a barred (lost/stolen) handset, then it's pretty much just paperweight.

You can factory unlock your iPhone, but some carriers like a Sprint and Verizon are too expensive for factory unlocking. Try to use Gevey Sim (latest gevey supports IOS 6.1).

Good Luck!

Try to do what I say This worked on an iPhone 4s (iOS 5.1.1 9B206)

-Insert any SIM

-On activation screen, go to emergency call(home button)

-call the emergency number

-press home

-go back to call by tapping green ribbon

-end call

-Quickly open settings

-Tap carrier

-Turn Automatic selection off and choose carrier

connect to a Wi-Fi network and finish activation

Don't connect to PC(itunes) before finishing activation

The exploit is famous on youtube Search for iPhone activation screen bypass

Please don't recommend that method here. It's illegal and unethical to call emergency numbers for non-emergency purposes, even if you disconnect the call immediately.

I agree But the call never got connected for me. And I donot think anyone can be that slow
