No, jailbreaking is used to download the third party applications like themes, ringtones, games etc... To use your Iphone 5 with T-mobile you need to unlock your mobile. Use remote unlocking service to unlock your Iphone 5. Get the service from the site Mobileunlocksolutions.com , and unlock it using unlocking instructions.

No. Jailbreak and unlocking are two different things. Please check with the carrier for an unlock or go to shop.iproservice.com to buy an IMEI unlock. Please note if you are in the US and purchased the phone after 26th January 2013 it is illegal to unlock it via IMEI.
