I have to ask for legal reasons when did you buy your cellphone?
I know a good website or two,but please read this :
"If you are in the United States of America and own a phone that was purchased before January 26th, 2013 you may legally unlock it in accordance with the exemption to the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. (DMCA) Cell phone unlocking will now be illegal in The United States of America for any USA service provider cell phone that is purchased after January 26th, 2013 unless you have permission from the service provider your phone is locked to. We will not provide any advice, service, or support for any USA service provider cell phone or smart phone purchased after January 26th, 2013."

I might be able to help you if it complies!

Guess it is the same in the US as in the UK.  Your network should be able to unlock it for you.  In the Uk the network wil agree to do this once you are a certain way through your airtime contract.  Some networks charge a smal fee.

Apple maintains a list of handset serial numbers that the networks have agreed to unlock, or were original purchased sim free.  When you put another network sim into the device an it connect to servers at Apple, it will confirm that the device has been unlocked.

Ok,a friend of mine used qcunlock.com, it worked,but it is canadian.They seem to offer US support too,might be worth a try to write to them to ask if it would be possible in your position.
