    If you are asking how to unlock an iPhone 5 so it can be used on a

    different carrier, you must contact the wireless carrier that the iPhone is

    locked to and ask if they offer unlocking and if you qualify.

     

    If you are asking how to unlock an iPhone that is locked due to entering

    wrong password too many times, connect it to the computer you sync with

    and use iTunes on that computer to restore the iPhone.

     

    If neither of the above is what you are asking, please give more information

    as to what you what to do.

    If you have an "AT+T" model iPhone, you can unlock it yourself - without the assistance of the carrier.  There is a feature/anomoly (depends upon your perspective) that allows a user to unlock this model of iPhone, and there are instructions on how to accomplish this online - both within this forum, and elsewhere.

    Are you suggesting what it sounds like you're suggesting?...

    What do you think I'm suggesting?  Both Apple and AT+T know the situation that I described.  When first notified, AT+T's corporate response was similar to "yeah, we know".  My post has nothing to do with either jailbreaking, or underhanded chicanery.

    Then maybe you'd like to be a little less vague...

    If you suggest that I post the instructions on how to do so, I'm not going to do that.  I want the OP to show some initiative.  If unlocking the iPhone 5 is really that important, he can find the instructions himself.
