I have just been given an iPhone 4 on Lycamobile (who???).

It is on IOS 6.0 , with a firmware 04.12.02.

Can I upgrade the IOS to a newer version that will give me an unlockable firmware? If yes, which IOS?

No there is no free software unlock for your device only way is to pay carrier or a trusted imei unlocker
