How to fix some mysterious problems.

How do I unlock my iPhone 5c version 7.1.2 from the sprint network? I used painful to jailbreak the iPhone 5c version 7.1.2 thinking that would disable the sprint network... That did not work however. I recently canceled my sprint service and now have service with T-mobile and want to use my iPhone 5c.

Whatever "painful" is, I doubt it unlocks. Neither does pangu.
