    If it's factory unlocked, then no. If it's unlocked using Ultrasn0w, then yes.
    Check in cydia to see if you've got it installed.

    If you use ultrasnow or a gevy you will need to make a custom firmware. Let us know and we can give ya a tutorial on how to do so.

    Go download red snow 0.9.12b1, download the stock fw of 5.1.1 and create a NO_bb Ipsw CFW of 5.1.1.
    Run red snow to put iphone into pwned dfu mode , run iTunes :shift + restore to CFW of 5.1.1.
    Once restored. , jailbreak with red snow and install Ultrasnow again to unlock.

    You should let us know your modem firmware from settings > general > about.

    That is what I thought but no problem. After you have done what I posted and at 5.1.1 and before you jailbreak.
    Run reds now 0.9.14b1 , click extra, select stock 5.1.1 Ipsw , click back , click jailbreak and select ipad Baseband downgrade to downgrade your bb to 04.13.xx to get your gps working again..
