Now, jailbreak gives you a lot of opportunities to customize your iPhone with apps and tweaks you won’t find on the Apple App Store and get the most out of your iDevice. But unfortunately, you won’t find a free SIM Unlock solution through jailbreak. This was only possible until iOS 6.1.6 and the use of Ultrasn0w.
The only free iPhone Unlock comes through the Network which locks your iPhone and most times, it won’t be an option unless you are the account holder.
Jailbroken or not, you will have to stick with the classic IMEI Unlock method when it comes to Carrier Unlock.
