    Depending on your serial number if your iphone is week 29 of 2011 and later, then there is no way you can software unlock it. Check the 3rd , 4th and 5th digit of your serial number first.
    If it is not the above , then you can downgrade the baseband using redsn0w 0.9.15b3 to 05.13.xx.
    Jailbreak at 6.0.1 but tethered jailbreak if it is new bootrom, or downgrade firmware to 5.1.1 if you have saved blob using redsn0w for an untethered jailbreak using stitched custom firmware by redsn0w.
    Another option to unlock is to ask the locked carrier provider to IMEI unlock it.
