Thread: appledatabase.com - Is this a scam?

    Default appledatabase.com - Is this a scam?
    Hey, all! I've been looking into getting my 3Gs factory unlocked by adding my serial/IMEI to Apple's database of phones which are unlocked... I came across this website, but I have no idea if it's a scam. It costs $200, but they say they can add you info to the Apple database which will signal iTunes that your phone is not locked to any carrier.
    Anyone have any experience with these guys?

    Thanks!

    Thank you all for the info! I was soooo tempted to give it a try. I guess I'll just have to wait.

    Ok. How do you get it to work then? I sent them money a few months ago and later bought a prepaid Orange SIM from ebay but it did not work. The SIM worked in a Samsung slider phone that I unlocked with some codes but not in my Fido iPhone 3GS.

    Is there is specific type of Orange SIM required?

    It appears that their site is now gone and has been replaced by an iPhone news site different site.

    It smells fishy to me.
