iPhone Unlock Scam
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.
www iphoneunlockuk com
www iphoneunlockusa com
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.

eBay, Kijiji & Craigslist are full of people who will let you pay to jailbreak, even though it's free. While your there you can get a cup of tap water for $2.00, as well. Sorry to hear you got scammed, it drives me bonkers when I see those types of adds. The best thing we can all do is to inform our family & friends never to pay for this service that is free.

I got a spam email from them telling me they can unlock a iPhone4 for 23 Euro
How they got my email address is no biggy but how they knew I have a ip4
is beyond me, anyway I knew there was no unlock yet for a iPhone4, I wrote them
asking them how they were able to unlock a ip4 and no one can't... that was almost 2
weeks ago, still have not heard anything and I been taken off of their spam list.
These scammers were named unlock-the-iphone.com
We know they are selling the same software that is offered for free.
***Hope I did not break any forum rules by posting these scammers name

Read the link below and I explain all the BS, even though I knew it was a scam (at least for the iPhone 4) to begin with. Think of it as a service to the community...which probably knew not to do it anyway, hahahaha. Hope its of some help.

This reminds me of a very well known Quote..."There's a sucker born every minute."
I'm a firm believer in Educate... Educate... Educate... Read... Read... Read... As much Information that is available on the web and other available routes, it's amazing that this can happen... Read... Read... Read... Search... Search... Search...
