iOS Dev-Team member MuscleNerd says that UltraSn0w will be updated as soon as tomorrow with support for iOS 5, allowing iPhone users to unlock their device to use on unsupported carriers.

will coordinate ultrasn0w iOS5 compatibility update to come out after a planned MobileSubstrate update tomorrow

Keep in mind that the UltraSn0w unlock will only work for 01.59.00, 05.11.07, 04.26.08, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and 06.15.00 basebands, so if your baseband differs from these you won’t be able to unlock your iPhone using UltraSn0w until the Dev-Team finds a new exploit.
It’s currently possible to upgrade your iPhone to iOS 5 while preserving your baseband using the current version of RedSn0w, which you’ll also need to jailbreak your iPhone before starting.
Will you be unlocking your iPhone with UltraSn0w?

Moved to iPhone Unlock.

Just to clarify, this unlock will not work on an iPhone 4 that has been updated to 4.1 or later in iTunes unless you preserved the baseband. The iPad baseband (6.15.00) can be installed on a 3G or 3GS with a non-unlockable baseband to make it unlockable with ultrasn0w.
