how to unlock iphone 5s

We've bought a new unopened iphone 5s from somebody who told us it could be used on Orange or T-mobile or EE. We put a virgin payg sim in and it works on that.

We would like to unlock it to use on giffgaff but are having trouble working out how to do it. Virgin say they can't unlock it because it wasn't bought from them and Apple say they can't unlock it or tell us the carrier.

How do I find out the carrier it is locked to?

I don't particularly want to use a third party company to unlock it.

I've heard that Orange/T-mobile/EE require you to be with them 6 months before they will unlock it. Does anybody know if that is correct. Will they accept 6 months with Virgin as there seems to be some sort of affiliation?

We're in the process of trying to find where the person who sold it to us bought it but any other advice appreciated.
