    Exclamation AT&T iphone 5 bought from Craigslist
    Hi guys,
    Do you guys know any cheap but reliable source to get my AT&T iphone 5 unlock (under 80 USD). I have checked Unlock iPhone – iPhone OS Unlocking Service but they seem to be not legit.

    Anyone with any idea when the price will go down with the online locking services. I really want to use this phone with tmobile but it seems to be use as an ipod touch at the moment.

    Thanks guys!

    If it's out of contract and has a clean imei, there are services available for under 80 USD. Ask Cowboy about it.

    thanks for the reply! It is not out of contract. I got it from Craigslist and I think the IMEI is clean not blacklisted. I don't know if Cowboy can do the factory unlock with this iphone or not.

    If it's still in contract then you will be looking at the more expensive/fast service. If it does end up having a blacklisted imei, sell it on eBay, it'll still work overseas, at least.

    The phone is from AT&T user. I am trying to find a legit person who can get this phone unlock. It seems now that it is very pricey to get the phone unlock through an online service and I don't think they are legit. The only legit way that I know is have the seller call up AT&T and have it unlock which is not possible in my case. Do you think after the phone have been unlocked, that phone can still be blacklisted by AT&T? Thanks for the reply!

    Yes, it can still be blacklisted at any time by AT&T.

    I have this exact same issue - iphone 5 from Craigslist, clean esn. Can I use chronic unlocks to unlock it? I tried using a service off eBay and was refunded because it was supposedly still under contract??
