Hey guys, so for the past couple years I've had a jailbroken and unlocked iPhone 4 on T-Mobile. I just got a factory unlocked iPhone 5 and want to give my 4 to my mom. I don't really want to go through the hassle of re-jailbreaking and unlocking the phone to reset all the settings, and the actual jailbreak is of no importance; I just need the phone to be unlocked for T-Mobile still. I have manually deleted all my apps, etc. off the phone but my iCloud account is still linked to the phone, and I can't find any way of removing it save deleting the iCloud account outright (which I think actually deletes my whole account, not just my account from the iPhone 4). So what is my best option; is there a way to delete the account from the phone (and break all ties of the phone to my account/computer) and set it up on my mom's computer/ iTunes without having to reset/re-jailbreak the phone? Would I have to do that or an IMEI unlock? For reference it is running iOS 5.0.1, baseband 1.59. Thanks for any help!

If it is an AT&T iPhone your best bet would be to get it IMEI unlocked. AT&T will do it for free if it is no longer under contract. That way you can simply restore it and not worry about jailbreaking or it relocking.
