    I thought there was a software issue between the sprint and Verizon that you won't be able to access Verizon's data?

    By standard means yes. The Sprint iPhone 5 and the Verizon 5 are the same model, which is the iPhone5,2. But software is software and hardware is hardware. An interposer unlock does not have a dependency on software, but software have dependencies on hardware. Carrier unlocks cannot cross bounds between Sprint and Verizon because of software means.

    Yes. Online (unless you live in Eastern Asia or SEA). As long as the price is under $20 in/excluding shipping, it's a reasonable price.

    I am so scared to mess anything up. So I will probably not have the balls to jailbreak :p

    If you follow the instructions to the T, you won't have any issues, and that's with manual jailbreaks that require IPSWs and not userland ones. The more recent jailbreaks are all userland, so it's a one-click-one-tap, and the only way to mess that up would be to suddenly unplug your device during the process.
