This is my experience @ www.officialiphoneunlock.co.uk:
Most of the guys might have come across www.officialiphoneunlock.co.uk after the release of ios 5 with the modem baseband 04.12.01. This is because the usual unlock methods failed with the arrival of modem baseband 04.12.01.
My iPhone 4 was locked to AT&T and i had tried every unlock methods out there. After few days of search, i came across www.officialiphoneunlock.co.uk. I said to myself that it is a scam site, trying to eat peoples money.
I looked at their Facebook page with thousands of posts praising officialiphoneunlock.co.uk and lots of reviews and finally paid them $35 to use their service. I gave them my phone’s IMEI number.
They said it will take about 6 hours. I waited.
The order status page read “IMEI is waiting to be submitted to unlock server”.
After 2 and half hours the status read “IMEI submitted to unlock server”.
I was happy when i saw this. I checked the site after 6 hours, it was still the same.
I tried again after 2 hours, NO CHANGE, i became sceptical.
The next day, when i tried it read “Unlock complete – simply connect your handset to iTunes to complete the unlock.”
I then connected my iPhone to my system and opened iTunes and there it read “Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked.”
Finally, i got my iPhone unlocked.
One more thing, mistakenly i paid them $35 twice. I mailed them about the issue, and after a week i got a mail from NOCHEX saying that they have refunded my one payment, but i never got it from NOCHEX. Few more mails, and they paid me via paypal later.
Please read the below comments to see other people’s experiences.
After coming to know about the experiences of many other users, these are my conclusion:
- Please do read carefully about their pre-order terms. “Pre-orders” are not covered by their money back guarantee. You are paying to be placed in their mailing list service.
- The unlock can take longer than expected.
Hope it helps………..
