    The iPhone 5 can be jailbroken untethered as long as its running something before 6.1.3. I'm not too informed when it comes to unlocks, but I know the verizon phones are factory unlocked.

    If your iPhone is on iOS 6.0 to 6.1.2, you can jailbreak with evasi0n evasi0n.com. It is an untethered jailbreak.

    If you are on iOS 6.1.3, there is no jailbreak and the next one probably won't come out until 3-6 months after iOS 7 is released publicly.

    Jailbreaking and unlocking aren't the same thing. Software unlocking is pretty much dead. There hasn't been an update to it for 2 years from what I've heard. You would need an IMEI unlock. Verizon devices are the exception though, they are unlocked right from the beginning

    Unlocked at stores usually. Until recently you could get IMEI unlock on eBay but I think new laws have nixed that.

    I can help with the unlock. Price depends on the carrier, send me an email at firstcherokeekid@me.com. I can get you a factory unlock within 36 hours.

    There is no use for ultrasn0w anymore. As everyone has mentioned, you just buy IMEI unlocks from ebay for like $5 and you are unlocked forever. No more having to preserve basebands and creating custom IPSW's to keep your device unlocked.

    I see, man i remember the the 3G came out in 08, before youtube was that popular. I would stay until 3-4 AM trying to unlock, and preserve Baseband. And unlock with YelloSn0w. So whats up now? no one makes the effort to release them like they used to?

    There's very little code to mess around with. Jailbreaking has become really hard too since the bootrom cannot be read so they (the jailbreakers) can only rely on software exploits which are basically one time use
