Anyone Use the Ebay Unlocking Services?

I have an iPhone 4S locked to AT&T that I want to unlock and I was wondering if anyone has used the unlocking services on Ebay. If so is there a specific one that you would recommend?

Thanks!

Use unlock_fusion on eBay. I did and it worked great for my iPhone 5 (twice, the first unlock became an unauthorized one after 3 swaps at the Apple store) and my grandmother's iPhone 4 was unlocked without issue.

MC318LL AT&T 16 GB 4s iPhone.

I just received an iphone 4s 16 GB from a friend that just updated to an iPhone 5 from AT&T. It is in very good condition. He gave me the iPhone 4s for my son. But I have Sprint. Is there someone out there that has a similar problem, but want to move from Sprint to AT&T and willing to swap iPhones? Please contact me at rodolfo.morrison@yahoo.com

Why pay for it? I send a request to unlock my iPhone 4 from AT&T and they did it for free.

Yes, they are. However there is the chance the Apple store can recognize your unlock is unauthorized. In which case I simply purchased another, haha.

If you buy a subsidized iPhone you have to wait til the contract is up or pay the ETF to get it unlocked.

Your iPhone 4 was probably off contract. Some people who have the 4S aren't off contract yet so they won't unlock it.

I have unlocked over 15+ phones with no issues. Highly recommend Unlock_Fusion and Unlock_Nation. They are quick, reliable and very responsive to any questions. Good luck.
