No, there is no cydia unlock for the iphone 5.
If its an AT&T iphone 5 you can purchase an imei unlock for it and have it permanently carrier unlocked.

Yep, what my friend posted above.
Swift unlocks.
$2 and 24 hours later and your phone will be unlocked for good.

There is.
Buy a Tmobile or simple mobile sim on ebay for $1 and stick it in.
Not that you really need it cause unlock fusion/swift unlocks is the Man but just to verify it yourself.

Yea but that won't really let you know unless you can make a phone call but I don't want to spend more on a prepaid account.

Simple Mobile will show as the carrier. Anyway once iTunes gives you the unlocked message, there's no need to test it (well you could).

That will 100% let you know. You dont need to make a phone call.
If the phone is still locked and you enter a Tmobile sim for example it will not accept it and will just display invalid sim.
If its unlocked it will activate and connect to simple mobile.
