    Hi guys, I'm trying to unlock an iPhone 4s from AT&T to use on T-Mobile. I purchased it off ebay. I've contacted AT&T several times to try and get it unlocked despite not being a customer. I've come to the conclusion that I must buy an unlock from a 3rd party.

    I've paid iDeviceGuys [redacted] to unlock it, however, I believe it's probably a scam.

    I'm looking into other sites such as
    att-iphone-unlock.com [Redacted]
    cellunlocker.net [redacted]

    Has anyone used these services recently? How was your experience?

    Welcome to iMore wulahn

    We don't recommend any service in General and don't offer an unlock service here on iMore but you do have options now that the Government is changing the law to make it legal to unlock your cellphone

    Thanks for the reply.

    Out of curiosity, how do these people who advertise unlocking services even get them unlocked? Is it some sort of at&t inside connection? or perhaps something else?

    Chronic Unlocks is pretty well regarded in the unlocking world. I've also used Unlock Streak (they were giving away a free unlock every few days here in the forums a while ago) on my iPhone 5 successfully. Good luck!

    DO NOT TRUST CHRONIC UNLOCKS!!!

    I have used them and Cellunlocker.net and because of a $5 difference I went with ChronicUnlocks and got ripped off! They/He refuses to reply back to emails concerning issues for days and will not refund your money if it doesn't work (even though their refund policy says they will)...he will flat out argue with you and call you a liar.
