    Jailbreaking is bad, naughty OP!

    But to answer your question, if your phone is locked to your carrier, ie you cannot use another networks sim in your phone, then don't do it...turbo sim fyi is another way around a carrier lock.

    Simple answer, if you bought your iPhone on contract and you're still on contract chances are your phone is carrier locked.
