Apologies if u've already seen this - I am reposting it into this forum after a minimal respose to it in the jailbreak section! I'm still confused! and surprised no ones commented....Who is iphoneunlockuk, + r they selling something which is free to download?
Can anyone give me advice about using iPhone Unlock UK - 1 Click iPhone Unlocking Software and what u get for ur money!?
When I got my knock down iPhone from CPW I intended to unlock it for my orange SIM and looked about the internet for what looked like a reputable company. I came across iphoneunlockuk, offering one click software for ~£30 and chose them cos they had a real shop in London that u could go to if anything went wrong but also cos they were offering lifetime support and free software updates for the one off payment. (I can't remember the exact wording but there was heavy inference that this would include support through iPhone2 software)
Don't get me wrong -I'm very happy with what i got for the £30 and it worked, no problem. However, now I've found out a little bit more about the process it seems the software they supply is simply a branded version of iLiberty+ (says iPhoneunlockuk in the menu bar but otherwise looks the same and the package is called 'iLiberty+'). I'm surprised that this software seems (?) available for free download from, for example, this excellent site. However, I am prepared to accept they got me going and it was comforting to know there was some (!) support available! What's annoyed me today is an email saying actually the next version for working with iPhone 2 software will cost another £20! So, my questions are:
-Are they anyway just selling someone elses (iphoneproject.org) hard work which seems anyway available for free from the generous authors?
-Am I justified in feeling miffed they are not upgrading us for free? Anyone else remember the original promise?
-Are they anyway just likely to charge me £20 to give me a new copy of iLiberty+ for iPhone2 software - that I could otherwise just download for free anyway when the time comes!?
Surely ther must be more to it!

I recently had an ordeal with iphoneunlock.uk. They are a bunch of scam artist. They sell software that they didn't create and never give credit for. The software is Pwnage and iLiberty+
They tell you at the beginning of the home page that it will unlock version 2.0. Immediately after you pay for it, it tells you not to update to version 2.0. An unlock is coming soon..Sure it is, once iLibery, Dev Team, or Ziphone releases it. Then they will charge 52.99US for it.
Anybody who reads this...please do not purchase from these people. The only thing that they did do right was to give me a quick refund after I told her I was calling my credit card company and reporting her.
