    You will need to either notify T-Mobile, explain your situation, and ask them to unlock it for you or try any of the numerous unlocking services found via the internet, but note that these services require assistance from the carriers for the most part. As for free sites, I don't know, and I'd be leery to trust any, if available...

    Hi and welcome to iMore.

    Free sites? i've never heard of a free site offering this. There are plenty of paid sites that purport to being able to do this though but personally I would never trust them. Fortunately here in the UK it is astonishingly easy to buy an unlocked device and all it took me was a quick phone call to my carrier and they unlocked my 5S for free over the phone.

    As JustMe said, call the carrier you bought it from and ask them. They have no reason to assist you though but if you don't ask, you won't get.

    Good luck!

    Yes, it will. In fact, you'll lose your jailbreak entirely! But you can very simply rejailbreak it, and reload all of your favorite tweaks right back on it.
