    Default Warning, don't give unlock service before you get paid
    Hello everybody,
    here's a little annoying story but important.
    2 weeks ago i unlocked at&t iphone 4s for a member here in the forum, his nickname is: ragingazn628.
    i usually don't unlock to someone i don't know before i get paid but i thought what the hell, i don't think he'll get cheap on $50.
    unfortunately, he did. now i lost money and he's happy. the only thing he doesn't know is that i can lock his iphone again and i did sent him a message letting him know that he has 24 hours to send me the money or i'll just lock his iphone again. all i wanna to say is 2 things:
    1. to all you guys that unlock phones, don't do it before you get paid. it's better loosing the deal than loosing money.
    2. if this ragingazn628 member turn to one of you to unlock his phone after i'll lock it again, just prepare yourself.


    ragingazn628, if you read that, please send me the money. it's not worth it to get nasty for $50. we're all friends.

    good luck everybody and have a great weekend.

    It's a remote unlock. i don't need to the iphone itself since it's via apple servers.

    At least you were pretty nice about it. I would have done the same thing. Good for you! Hope you get what you're owed

    Just wondering, how do you have access to apples servers? Do you work for Apple or AT&T or any carrier?

    That's why there are forum rules to follow. Services should not be sold on MMi without meeting minimum requirements being met. You're actually not qualified to sell your services here on MMi. You don't meet both having 31 posts and 31 days of being a member. If you had sold your service in the BST, the buyer likely could've trusted you to pay you first before you did the unlock.

    I'm sorry you have a loss of $50 assuming this other member isn't going to pay up. Thanks for the head's up on the member who isn't paying up though, however, I'm going to have to ask you to not sell your services here on MMi outside of the BST forums and to only do so when you've met the minimum requirements.
