How to unlock carrier phones?

by Illusive7Man / June 14, 2013 2:04 AM PDT

I'm not from USA, I know it's illegal there. Anyway, I always hear about some 3rd party software but I can't find it. Can you help?

Clarification Request
Depends on the phone/hardware involved

Different handsets/hardware require different solutions to unlock.

Most of this type of talk is not permitted @ CNET unfortunately. Hop on google....

You see mostly spammers if anyone asks. I don't see where this breaks any rules or law yet but spam is not welcome.
