Could the experts here give advice?

I've been reading up and trying to get familiar with unlocking methods, and come to the conclusion that since iOS6 software unlocking is not possible any more, and that even attempting to change to the ipad baseband on an iphone will possibly damage the phone, or make returning to a usable baseband difficult. Then I came across this link and guide for unlocking which seems to suggest we can still software unlock. It appears to be up to date but contradicts what I read here and elsewhere.

There seems to be a lot of misinformation around, could someone look over this and let me know if its genuine please? If its incorrect could you point out where it goes wrong?

Any way they would unlock it for you or if you purchase an IMEI unlock for it?

Yes they will unlock for 20, but trying to be resourceful and always up for a challenge I was wondering if I could make a soft unlock work.

I'm more or less resolved to going in to the shop and paying, but you know how you can get an idea in your head that it can be done another way.

It's well worth to pay the 20 to have it officially unlocked.
You will never have to worry about hacks, jb, basebands, shsh blobs etc.
it will always work with any Sim.
