Software and Hardware methods cannot Unlock iPhone 5s
This method is a software hack, which exploits bugs that can be found in the iOS versions. It requires a jailbroken iPhone, because the unlocking tool can only be found in Cydia (Ultrasn0w application). The bad news are that Ultrasn0w only supports up to 6.1.6 iOS version and up to iPhone 4. For the moment Ultrasn0w tool is not able to Unlock iPhone 5s, and the group that created it is idle for almost two years.
This is a specially designed SIM-Card that must be placed inside your SIM-Tray with the SIM-Card you want to use. This might cause some issues to your SIM-Tray, and most of the times both of those cards will stuck into your SIM-Tray. People reported that Apple Stores are voiding the warranty of your iPhone if you send it to them like that. The hardware method has an 70%-80% failure rate (from user feedback) and it costs from $40 to $80.
Official IMEI Method can Unlock iPhone 5s
The Official IMEI Method is approved by Apple and all Mobile Networks. It does not have any restrictions, so it can support all iPhone models and all iOS/Baseband versions.
This method is tracking down your iPhone’s IMEI number in Apple’s and Mobile Networks databases and marks it as unlocked. This allows you to have permanently unlocked iPhone and upgrade it to ANY future iOS version without locking it again.
There are many IMEI Unlock providers that can Unlock iPhone 5s, but you need to make a very good research before making the final order!
