|Scams and Scammers - Expose hypocrisy and spread respect ! Don't get ripped off! REGISTER|
DON'T TRUST THESE GUYS! Their site says they will give you software to unlock you iPhone but it it just a pdf file telling you where to get the software. They say there is a money back guarantee but that is useless. The phone numbers listed have been disconnected and even PayPal wouldn't help me out. WATCH OUT!!
Unfortunately, I have been through a worse experience.
After I realized that this website is just a scam nad they ripped my money off, I read at one of the websites that that site is a scam and the real one is easyuphoneunlocking.com. I wanted to unlock my iphone anyway.
However, once I paid the money I figured out that it is the same way of ripping people of their money. Even the same Director's name, David Holm, who is as it seems the head of the gang.
I wonder if there is a way to get our money back and shut these websites down!!
I am another victim, their google Ad and their website made me to buy their service. They have nothing to provide you which you dont know.
They are not good to refund your monty too. Complained paypal about them and waiting for the result.
They never reply too.
I think they're pretty legit, ran through some hiccups with the payment (used PayPal) but a quick call to the customer support and they were more than happy to oblige.
As for the unlocking process itself, well can't say much but everything went quite well. I had a 4.3.3 firmware installed and I thought since it is quite new there would be some problems. Fortunately, it seems that they were able to update their software in order to accommodate Apple's latest updates. Process was pretty straightforward and the instructions was outlined in a step by step manner.. so yeahn didn't have any problems here..
I know for a fact that they're one of the few legit ones..
At first, I was scared to trust my money on a website not knowing if they would be able to jailbreak and unlock my iPhone. To all you up here, have faith in this website, I highly recommend it! It's 100% legit. They did a wonderful job. They jailbreak and unlock my iPhone 4 on new baseband. The jailbreaking and unlocking process is pretty easy.
Best of all, I received prompt and professional customer service.
What do you guys work for them? You are kidding right? I wished they logged IP addresses I bet yours would show as the same and have the IP address of this company.
They are useless. They told that there are lot of applications to unlock the phone. But all are fake information only. And even though they will ask the our credit card details to unlock the phone code. They are all Scammers only... BEWARE!!!!!!!!
All the sites claiming they can unlock any iphone on any baseband are talking out their a$$. The guys on here commenting that they are legit and work are no doubt the owners of the sites. I was stupidly caught out by one of these cowboy companies ( www.unlockguide.org ), they state on home page that they can unlock every baseband, once you pay and go thru to the members area all they have is stupid instructions on jailbreaking and downloading ultrasn0w from cydia. Ultrasn0w unlocks old basebands but of course no mention of 03.10.01 in the members area like they state on home page. No email addresses on the site work and also the phone number is a fake voicemail. I'm more annoyed at myself for letting this happen, I was in a hurry and frustrated that I couldn't find any downloads that unlocked my iphone 4 (4.2.1 on 03.10.01 baseband). I had a feeling that the site was talking crap but stupidly thought Ill give it a go. I received the order details from a company called SWREG Inc, a small google search resulted in many forums discussing scams from them too. I went straight to the bank and cancelled my card incase they decide to try taking more money from me. I'm not sure what can be done about companies like this due to they fact that we have given them our details so its not real fraud.
p.s. the gevey sim seems to be the only way to unlock the newer iphones, its been a lesson learned but I am now unlocked lol. Also, beware of fake gevey sims! I bought one from ebay that didn't work, went to a phone shop in my city and bought a real one that worked :-)
I'm still in the process of trying to retrieve my money. They claim to be able to unlock any iphone, version and baseband-not true. When I contacted their 'customer support' about this issue I was referred to a youtube link to change my baseband (that didn't work) and then told to be patient as they try and figure out an unlock for my needs. It's been over a month and they send me the same generic email every time I contact them, asking for the information I've provided 5 times. It may work for some phones, but if it doesn't you will not get your money back-guaranteed.
It's easy to expose this site as a scam..
Notice how they offer to check if your iPhone can be unlocked or jailbroken?
Select a phone model, a random country and then enter a bogus IMEI number. Click "Check status"
Then watch the impressive pop-up window which claims to connect to their servers... validate your iPhone... check unlock statius with their database... generate report...
My iPhone can indeed be unlocked! Even though it doesn't exist, since I submitted fake info!
What does that tell you?

Sorry to admit i'm yet another victim. Written to Paypal ref a refund, will have to just wait and see but have written the money off already. I had jailbreak on my iphone previously (Limera1n) and it was working fine. Decided to update the phone so that i could unlock it due to moving to the channel islands... Big mistake
Now my phone is running on version 4.3.3, when i tried the iphone-unlocker-pro.com or as i call them now (iSHOCKER-pro.com) software, it comes up as "not compatible".
Support Team came up with a solution when i wrote to them " The 4.3.3 is the latest version and we are still working on it......................................."
I'm clearly not the first and got a funny feeling i won't be the last...Bas***ds..
Will try to see if Limera!n has anything to offer as their jailbreak worked brilliantly previously.
By the way Kelderek, tried your suggestion. You were spot on!!!
Did you know that Iphone-unlocker-pro.com can unlock an iphone 4. registered in Azerbaijan with an IMEI number of "total rip off"
WHAT A SERVICE.........
Shame no-one does virtual grenades!!!!!
SCAM, SCAM, SCAM, SCAM,SCAM, SCAM
I've lost my money and you will too!
Run as fast as you can from these guys.
They are the SCUM of the earth.
Great news guys!
i decided to go to paypal ref the (ishockers) scam. The scumbags got in touch with me via paypal say how sorry they were i was not happy with the service (what a bunch of jokers!!!) and they would send me some part, free of charge, which would fix the problem.
I'll keep it short.
TOLD THEM TO STICK IT!
THEY CANNOT BE TRUSTED AND I WANTED MY MONEY BACK.!!!
Escalated the file as a fomal dispute with Paypal and......
wait for it... Shock! Horror!
I GOT A REFUND FROM PAYPAL!
Some of you guys on here who went to paypal and didnt get a result, reopen the case and GET YOUR MONEY BACK!
If anyone wants to know exact what i did to get this result, let me know.
DO LET THE SCUMBAGS GET AWAY WITH IT!!!!!!!!

I did ask him to release my order and delivery with DHL/Fedex . He was saying the boss crying, mad, disappointing this and that and pointing I the one don't want to pay the money to settle the problem. I just placed the small order and I need to suffer those drama crab story that he make... human greediness never end to lie....
Please view more my expensive stories buy from this jerk not IPAD2 or IPHONE:-
Am sorry it took a while to get back to you.
The phones as been shipped.But have a supprise for you.The company Management has decided to shipp out 15 UNIT of the Apple iPad 2 64GB Wifi 3G & 5 UNIT Apple iPhone 4 32GB for the shipping to be carried out yesterday.Base on the trust you have in us,I told my boss that we should make the phones 20UNITS,and he agreed with me.
But with the bases of our transaction and agreement,you were to worried about not lossing your money,so if i do not ship out yesterday then it means i am not keeping to my words, my boss word since you already assure me that you are a serious buyer.
So now you will get the following Phones...
5 Apple iPhone 4 32GB
15 Apple iPad 2 Wifi 3G 64GB
5 Apple iPad 2 64GB Wifi 3G Paid for
1 Apple iPhone 4 32GB paid for
So these are phones you will be getting,I personaly shipped out the goods.
So i decided to package the phone with the shipping details.So all the details of shipping comes with phones and also with the Invoice with the prices of the phones stipulated.So ** Tuesday After noon you will get 5 units iPhone 4 32gb & 15 units Apple iPad 2,and hope you are not going to mess things up for me when you have your goods ??
And i am personally giving you free iPhone 4 in addition to the IPHONE 4 32GB you order.
So you will get 1 Apple iPhone 4 32gb for free
You help us sell the other 3 units Apple iPhone 4 32gb & 10 units Apple iPad 2. ok
The iPad will be sold at 400usd & iPhone wil sold at 300usd each (its stipulated in the invoice in the package)
Here is the Jerk + the scammer details;
Phone #: +44 7579 589659
The phones Are in Malaysia border now but we ran into difficulties delivering them to your address.We were told that before any delivery can be made to your address a TAX/VAT fee must be paid.The customs are charging $1,560usd for the tax,My boss said since this is the first transaction we are having together that you should pay 760usd now and he will pay rest 800usd ok???.
So i told them to contact you themselves but they refused saying they will only deal with the shipper to avoid any theft(which i do not understand what they mean ** that).
So you will have to transfer $760usd to us via Western Union so we can settle the tax for you to get the phones within 3hours.
Below is the name & address you we send the money via western union money transfer........
RECIEVER'S NAME - FRANK - HANDERSON
ADDRESS : 7 PETWORTH ROAD,
CITY - HASLEMERE, SURREY,
COUNTRY - UNITED KINGDOM
ZIPCODE - , GU27 2JB,
As soon as the payment is confirmed you will send us the following details below...
SENDER'S NAME :
MTCN NUMBER :
AMOUNT SENT : 760usd Which is 467GBP
When we get the details we will proceed with paying the tax\vat so you can get the phones..
This jerk still not scam enough, here is the latest update this time email from Frank Handerson
There was a slight complications in the package delivery,due to dis reason there will be a little delay in the arrival of the phones..
We hard a very horrible day at the office today,a client who didn't pay her full cost of the phones we shipped was no where to be found.She basically disappeared with the phones and with payment..
This incidence has caused a lot of problems for us at the office.My boss is in a very angry situation.It because of this incidence there is a delay in the arrival of the phones.
My boss is requesting that to avoid any problems with his business,he wants you to pay for the rest 3 iPhone and 10 iPad which is (4,000usd) before the phones can be delivered.I told my boss that its not possible for you to pay that amount and that you are a trustworthy client but he is still bent on going on with his decision.
Am in a dilemma here because I don't know what step to take..
So I think the solution is going along with my boss and once the total fee is paid,
This might look like a problem right now but be rest assured that its going to be solved and we all get our happiness.
Please write me soonest.

I'm sorry to break this to you guys, but ANY site that charges you for a jailbreak/unlock is scamming you. Jailbreaks and unlocks are released free of charge by such groups as the iPhone Dev-Team, Chronic Dev, and other solo hackers such as comex (although I think he was offered a job at Apple). These sites simply repackage the software/exploits and sell them. As someone who has been in the jailbreak and unlock scene for the majority of the time it's been around, and as someone who has spoken to comex, George Hotz, and members of the iPhone Dev-Team and Chronic Dev-Team too, please don't be fooled by websites like these, and do your research first. With that advice in mind, I don't have much sympathy for those who were scammed; never buy anything without research, especially when it seems to good to be true.
