I got my AT&T iPhone 5 unlocked through him. Took 24-48 hours, mainly because it was during a sale and he had a high volume. You have nothing to worry about in working with him. Unlock wise he's one of the best around now.

I am also need an iphone 5 FIDO unlocking too! Chronic charge about 150! I found a shop in vancouver would do it for 110, but right now the unlocking for fido/roger is on a hold and no one is offering at this time. The other day I just unlocked an iphone 5 AT&T for 3 bucks

I just asked my buddy, who DID use chronic and he said he was charged $35USD. Why is it so much more for FIDO?

Nah, he wanted to use Chronic. Sometimes cheapest isn't best. If I do it, I'll use chronic as well.

Thumbs down Be very wary!!

RE Chronic Unlock Service. I Do Not Recommend this company. As I write this post I have been waiting over a month for an Express unlock service for an Iphone4, a Non responsive support center and noticed lots angry comments on Facebook, so at this stage not a postive outcome I would NOT recommend, I will keep you posted.

Chronic Unlocks

Don't use these people - if you have a Canadian provider they will unlock for half the price as long as your contract is in good standing.

I sent them a request to unlock and they charged my credit account immediately. Its been several weeks and nothing has happened. I contacted them several times through their website and never received the courtesy of a response.

I did it through Rogers for $50CDN instantaneously. I have requested Chronic Unlocks to cancel and refund. Still no response.

Don't waste your time.

Thumbs down Over 2 months and nothing

Same here, I paid for the unlock 2 months ago, still nothing.
He was replying for my update request for the first month but now he is not replying at all. Even if i ask for refund, nothing.
I htought chronic was for real based on the threads i read here but i guess they were all scam?

If it helps, I had my iPhones recently unlocked from simpleunlocks.me -- all 3 completed in about a weeks time, and communication was great.

Chronic Scam

Is a complete scam. I ordered an unlock from this guy like 3 months ago. To date still nothing. I emailed several times, no answers. He will send an email after a month or so, just to make sure you will not contact PayPal. After the 45 day limit set by PayPal he will disappear with your money and there in nothing you can do about it.
Stay away from chronic unlocks, unless you are willing to sponsor his Vegas escapades.

My 5S unlocked was rejected by ATT with chronic and they refunded my money pretty quick. I also imessaged Will and he was quick to respond (within a few hours) Though the service didn't unlock my phone, they did refund my money as promised.
