    If you look in the phone settings, doesn't it tell you what network it is expecting to connect to in the about the phone things?

    Do a quick google search, you can use the model number to determine the carrier the phone is locked to. If the phone is locked, your options may be limited, though 5.0.1 should still have an exploitable baseband for ultrasn0w.

    Once you determine the carrier, you will need to jailbreak to unlock if you're attempting to use on a different carrier than the phone is locked to.

    Have you already reset it to factory settings? Maybe that would put it into normal mode? If not, you might be out of luck on jailbreaking unless you find a way to activate it.

    You can jailbreak a non-activated phone so long as you remove the SIM card from the phone during the jailbreak process. It will automatically detect the lack of SIM and hacktivate the phone. You will later need to use something like SAM to generate legitimate activation tokens on your network of choice (after unlocking the phone) if you encounter issues after hacktivating.

    The caveat is that the phone must be on a revision of iOS capable of being jailbroken. So, if it's on 6.1.3, you're out of luck right now unless it's an older model phone. E.g., don't upgrade it unless you absolutely have to, or can upgrade safely to 6.1.2 and keep an unlockable baseband.

    Does that work on any iPhone, n1ck? That can be a good thing to know in case of wanting to activate a phone without activating it (if you know what I mean). I'm gonna make a note of that!

    It should. Any jailbreakable phone can be hacktivated with redsn0w. It's how a lot of people turn their iPhones into functional iPod Touches after they upgrade to the newest model (if they don't want to sell the old one).
