Older generation of iPhone like 2G, 3G or 3GS can be unlocked very easily using freely available software solutions like ultrasn0w after jailbreaking it. However, later generation of iPhones like iPhone 4, 4s and 5 pose a problem when it comes to those software unlock.

- Sim interposer solution (Gevey sim, R-sim etc.): There are varieties of sim inter poser solutions available in the market at a reasonable price. However, be careful before buying any of them as Sim interposer solution does not work with all the basebands. iPhone 4 upto only baseband 4.10.01 can be unlocked with Gevey sim. These sims does not work with higher baseband like 4.11.08 or 4.12.01. Similar story for iPhone 4S, Gevey sim worked perfectly till the baseband 2.0.12. However, after that baseband, even though it works after lot of effort, you keep getting troubles. In case you have an iPhone 5, it doesn’t work with Gevey sim at all, no matter which firmware or baseband you are on.
