Thread: iPhone Unlock Scam

    Default iPhone Unlock Scam
    Hi

    Just joined this website to report this thing. I was a victim of the 3.1.3 on the 3GS. So I went to a couple of websites. Many were reported scams. This wasn't so I trusted it. But lets promote this one as being the same.

    iPhone Unlock UK - 1 Click iPhone 3G/3GS iOS 4 Software Unlock guaranteed
    iPhone Unlock - 1 Click iPhone 3G/3GS iOS 4 Software Unlock guaranteed

    They are the same website and attract you into buying there software for unlock (they renamed spirit as there software and let people download it for crying out loud). I think people should share there experience and demote these people

    I signed up. They told me that they could unlock the software pronto. Well after payment they said please wait few more days for ios4. Well I was annoyed but had done the payment so nothing could be done. But ios4 and not a public jailbreak yet (for latest baseband and stuff) and the website keeps saying that you unlock is being prepared. Funny stuff, they ask for imei on sale, it is NOT linked to imei. One claim MAY be true though. I think they do provide unlock (factory) for O2 UK customers. But even that requires a prepaid Sim card of O2 with 16 in it. They explain that it is a revenue share agreement with O2. Nothing of which is mentioned in FAQ, at least at the time I am writing this. ANd they never answer the trusty phone line support.

    Anyways its just to let people know of one more scam out there.

    100 % scam, if you have given your imei number, they can reprogram their sim card to match your imei number and ring up expensive bills on your provider. So beware..
