Thread: AT&T Unlock Servers are down

Ditto for me. Had high hopes for this service, and was extremely patient and felt reassured by previous success.
Just received my e-mail today informing that my unlock was rejected (order placed on november 5).
If you are the type of person that wants to give money to someone, and wait for 1+ month for nothing in return, then by all means go ahead and order from iDeviceguys.com.
My advice to you Cowboy, if you want to relieve yourself of this "headache" of taking people's orders. Don't offer a service that is not reliable and so subject to change. Regardless of the unstable unlocking situation, continuously taking people's orders when your customers' IMEI numbers are being REJECTED is just a recipe for bad business. Its one thing to boast a great service, and its another knowing how to run a business. I suggest you learn the latter.
I expect my full re-fund immediately without delay. I've waited long enough.

Logan is the 135 much more reliable? AT&T is becoming a pain

Mine from October 31 also rejected. Waiting for refund...
12-09-2013, 11:31 AM #724
mine from oct 29th is neither rejected nor unlocked
12-09-2013, 02:27 PM #725
Ordered on the 20th of November. Hoping for the best! And cowboy if my IMEI gets rejected, will the new service work for it?

Some got done others didn't. About 3/4ths of my orders came back completed the other quarter got canceled. I made my supplier respond, the reason is because if you look at thread tons and tons of people are complaining about how long its taking. I totally understand and I hate that its taking for ever. This is also why I switched suppliers. So to make my job easier I made my seller respond to all not just some from the dates I requested, cut down human error and trying to sort through more madness then there already is.
I can't make everyone happy but I am doing my best to make the majority happier at least.
I am working hard to try to refund the people that got a cancelation email refunded you can think paypal for this since there is noway to mass refund I have to go and find orders 1 by 1 by starting at the home screen go back in to my history and email find the transaction ID, hit search click on the transaction once its found, click issue refund, submit refund, verify refund, send email, and do it over and over again. And god fore bid you take more then 5 mins to look at something because paypal times out so stupid quick. So there is what 8-10 steps per refund + answer and sending emails, + newly submitted orders. Not trying to make an excuses just saying between paypal and the volume of everything all together Everything is taking sometime to get done and sorted out.
If anyone has any other questions please feel free to email me ill respond as quickly as I can. I am not going to be checking back on modmyi until much later tonight I am eating some late lunch right now only reason I am taking the time to post this right now, oh and got to keep my post count up because thats important to being a baller, ask Simon, 2K, or blkcadi they can verify baller status is defined by post count.

Still waiting for mine i hope i'll get it soon

Let me be one of the one's to dispel the myth that Cowboy is crooked or that he cannot unlock iPhone 5s or any other rumors that may have been floating around this forum. My 5s is unlocked and Cowboy did do it. He is not my personal friend nor do we know each other in any way other than from this forum and from my order with him. I ordered on October 30th and every week or so I was in contact with him and he reassured me that he would get my phone done. It took a while and he had to cancel my order due to the time constraints I was under, but he used his super fast service and got it done in less than a day after the mess with his other suppliers that was taking a month+. Thank you Cowboy. I am glad that I actually exercised patience and trusted what you said. Now I go on my biz trip this week and not spend a fortune using my iPhone!!!! To all others out there, if you have been waiting for a while, it may just be worth it to stick with Cowboy, I promise, he can get this done. I just restored my phone and saw the "Congratulations, your iPhone is now unlocked" banner when I finished!!!! YEAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

Yeah i believe that Cowboy is doing he is best to make successful unlocks but sometimes things are out of his hand. The key is patience. So if you have submitted your unlock just wait until the good news come to you. I don't know him personally but i trust him. He always gets back to me when i have a question within 24-48 hours, sometimes he replies at the same time.

Honestly cowboy, saying 3/4th of your orders returned successful? That is highly unlikely with the amount of people posting that have received their re-funds and the amount of unhappy customers.
Its past the point of saving face. This is a forum to provide feedback to others inquiring about IMEI unlocks. The majority of people who submitted orders in the past month, what 5-10 came back saying their's were successful (oh and believe me, I know because I was on this forum EVERY SINGLE DAY and I read EVERY SINGLE comment), when according to you, you received hundreds of orders. The math simply doesn't add up. Oh, and you may say, those who got their unlocks moved on with their lives or were not participants of this forum. Maybe so, but this all just sounds like false advertising.
@eliaskok, and those who think I may be an impatient customer. No. I waited just like everyone else for +1 month. Being patient has nothing to do with it. Just a bad business model. In taking customers orders with "rejected" IMEI, and yet taking more customer orders and increasing prices and term of sale changes.
You talk a-lot of big game, but unfortunately you don't have much to show for it. Reminds me of Jay Cuttler, what a joke.

My situation is as follows, I am not writing this for sympathy or anything like that.
I live in St. George's Grenada, and I attend medical school here. Originally from Chicago. When the new iphone5s came out, I was delighted because my contract was up for re-newal and I was like, why the hell not get a sweet phone (with a fingerprint :P) for $200. So I ordered and got it my folks to send it to me in Grenada. In the past, I had a iphone 5, and it was rather painless and cheap to get it unlocked, so I figured why buy the unlocked phone from apple right?
Then all the unlocking AT&T non-sense happened. I didn't know at the time until later once I received my new phone5s. To add to that, I had already sold my old phone. So basically I have been stuck for the past 2 months with a contract locked AT&T phone that I can only use to listen to music and check facebook/email. Through this whole process I was positive and patient and continued to have faith despite all the people coming on here and complaining of scams etc.
Anyways, thats what happened with me, waited all this time for a rejection e-mail, and believed the "i can unlock your phone blah blah blah". Just feel an obligation to let people know whats up.

I GOT MY EMAIL TONIGHT..." Your phone is now unlocked please read the instructions below to finish your unlock." Ordered on 11/11 and paid $99. So to those that continue to doubt I'm a real person and joined this forum to seek help. Cowboy has put a smile on my 17yr olds face tonight and I'm thankful I don't have to buy another phone! Thank you Cowboy!
The phone Cowboy unlocked is an iPhone 4S. 😊

Anyone have an alternative source for unlocking that is reliable? Thanks in advance
12-09-2013, 09:21 PM #737
Funny thing that karma is. Next time try just paying full amount for your phone from Apple instead of trying to screw AT&T. Not that I'm against screwing AT&T, but apparently you weren't successful yet.
Take your chances on eBay.

Oh and before you speak to me about violation of my contract, when knowing absoutely nothing about my situation I may add, maybe for a second think that not everyone in the world lives in America.
I have an active At&t contract, and have been using the service for upwards of the last 5 years, and I don't plan on changing it. So the question is, why do I want to unlock my phone? Hmm, because I live overseas for school and I want to be able to use my iphone on the local network here?
Oh wait, did I forget to mention that I travel back to the states on my holidays every six months and use my att line there?
I suppose ignorance is bliss.

Before this gets out of hand King_O_Hill and stayeh87 this your warning we aren't going to this thread into a bickering back and forth debate about legal matter etc. Take it to the pm's or drop it completely I dont really care its just not going to happen here on the public forums.
