It should be unlocked. If it's not, unlock_fusion on eBay worked for me (I got mine from a friend locked to AT&T)

Are you using it for T-Mobile? If so, you don't have to unlock it, just insert your nano sim and it'll work on it's own. I got the iPhone 5 a week ago and thought I had to restore it on itunes to get it to work.. waited 30 minutes for it to restore and I didn't get a message. I inserted the nano sim and after a few seconds of searching for a network and then saying no service.. T-Mobile popped up and it has been working like a charm.

Fusion e-mails instantly. Check your Spam/Junk folder. Instructions are there. My unlock was complete within 2 hours for a AT&T iPhone 4S.

It's not the specific one that I used, but it is the same seller. Worked for me ( tested it with a t mobile sim)
