    Hi Guys

    I have just received a phone call from a very distressed friend of mine, she was bought a Iphone5s as a prersent by a now ex boyfriend, he paid for the handset outright and gave it to her, she had a little baby with him who is currently very unwell and the piece of work has found it funny to get the phone blocked because he still has the box , imei number etc at his house to do so, so basically she is left with no phone and no way of contacting anyone.

    My question is this: is it possible to jailbreak a locked Iphone 5s? I have done a small amount of research and have come across Evasions new software that supposedly is just what I am looking for, would this be ok to use?

    Speedy answers would be appreciated thanks alot guys

    I am long term mac user very familiar with the hard/software

    Because jail breaking has nothing to do with unlocking a phone.

    Sounds like he blacklisted the phone. Neither jail breaking or unlocking will help this situation.
