I believe you have to Jailbreak it to unlock it, unless you can get your service provider to it for you.

Google it, there's instructions out there.

Correct.

Here's a YouTube video for jailbreaking THEN unlocking an iPhone 4.
YouTube - How to Unlock iPhone 4 (Use with Other Carriers)

16GB iPhone 5, 64GB Wi-Fi only iPad 1st Gen.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.
