I have a locked iphone 4s and see that there are some services on ebay offering to factory unlock an AT&T locked iphone 4s for between $149-$180.
Has anyone tried using these ebay services to unlock their phones? I am in the middle of buying one and just want to know if someone has tried using them. Thanks

^ have you read any of thier feedback to see if others have had problems?
I have read about this possibility, but can not confirm it, sorry. I'd start Goggling for info before I spent any money. Just me...

They all seem to have very good feedback however none of them seem to be explicitly addressed towards the factory unlocked service.
I am skeptical because i was under the impression it was impossible to factory unlock an AT&T locked iphone. Hopefully someone here has tried their service and can vouch for them.

This has popped up again from various sellers. I believe it is legit but unsure how long it will last. Be vary wary of feedback if using eBay.
Last time this was available it lasted just over a week before apple patched the method used to add the phones to the white list.

Good luck, if there were a service like that, surely someone on this forum would have posted it. I would be leery.

Exactly! Which is why i want to quickly take advantage of the service before apple blocks it. I assume apple wont remove the phone from their white list once its added. I just need someone who has used this service before to assure me all is well.
I am actually chatting with the guy now on ebay. If i end up buying this service, i will surely post to let everyone know if it was successful or not.
The guy is claiming this is a new service from apple. Flushing $150 down the drain can be very painful.

Okay folks. I have just paid for the factory unlocked iphone 4s service. The guy says it will take 5-15 days to get processed. I will surely let you all know what transpires. Wish me luck.

I had ordered for an IMEI unlock from Home « ifixnwi.com. I understand they have one more portal in the name of Home page.
The cost is $184.99 and this is for a factory unlock which means you can update your phone. If you dont want to spend so much, you can try 'Gevey Ultra S sim' by Applenberry. You can see it on
Unlock Your GSM iPhone 4S with GEVEY ULTRA S for iOS 5.0, 5.0.1 and Baseband 1.0.11, 1.0.13, 1.0.14 - YouTube
Its been only two days since I ordered from ifixnwi and it take about 10 days for them to unlock it.

Having just talked to AT&T, their policy is to -not- unlock iphones (after being told my phone was elegible to be unlocked I was told AT&T just doesn't do that, but I can use it with a plan with them. [thanks]) It is my understanding that the service (AT&T) your phone was locked to needs to do or send the ok to unlock to Apple who will then unlock it. I wonder just how these "unlock" places do it?

Finally got word my iMEI unlocker that Apple closed the AT&T IMEI window and that my phone won't be able to be factory unlock my phone. I doubt anyone who bought that service was able to get their phones unlocked.
The unlocker refunded my money so it looks like its Gevey Ultra S for me. I'm not too upset because I already have a factory unlocked 4s from apple. I was just hoping I could FUL this locked one as well.Jailbroken Factory Unlocked Iphone 4s 32Gb, Jailbroken Ipad 2 16GB
