when you get a warranty replacement, do you get swapped with a factory unlocked model or does one have to go through the whole process again?

Do you email them first before ordering as they requested? What's their email address and can I just message them via ebay message system?

They do excellent work, figured I'd input.

I've had 4 iPhones done all within 24 hours.

To clarify-

I still don't receive a message indicating that my phone is unlocked when I synch or restore with iTunes...SO NO EVIDENCE THAT MY PHONE IS UNLOCKED YET.

go to http://iphoneox.com/ you can verify there by adding your IMEI you can also get a t-mobile sim and pop it in it does not have to be a active sim. I ordered on of ebay for $2 popping in a tmobile sim is a better way to see if your unlocked then even the itunes msg.

Just ordered a t-mobile sim through amazon. Will let you know how it goes. The iphoneox.com website returned a status of 'unlocked', but without knowing the basis for that site's authority, I remain unconvinced. I'll update once I test the unlock using the tmobile sim or if, for some reason, I receive an 'unlocked' notification through iTunes.

It won't tell you its unlocked if you use an ATT sim. It will look just like an ATT phone and itunes wont mention it being unlocked until you try out another sim. I keep a non-active t-mobile sim around just so I can tell if its unlocked.

at least 8 people have had success so I have a feeling your fine. did you try contacting the about your concerns? I'll bet you can ask at a tmobile store and barrow a sim for two minutes too.

I thought Apple cracked down on these rendering them useless?

nope. Sam was rendered useless a while back.They did slow it down briefly but now it's back stronger then ever. People are out there low balling each other rather then being greedy I'm glad I held out and waited.

Is there any guarantee these things will stay unlocked?

I won't go that far but it will be difficult to close not a single case of a IMEI unlock any where being undone. that said the only real guarantees are life, death and taxes. For $20 I'll take my chances.

ATT 4s i bought off ebay just got here today. I requested through ATT an unlock they sent in a request to apple so i'll hear back in 4-5 days.. but im thinking this wont work as its so soon/probably still in contract, since its a 4s i guess its impossible its not under contract

answered in about 10 minutes, restored like they said and got the congratulations your iphone is unlocked. Much easier than paying on ebay... is that all these people do to unlock them? and then charge $20-$50?

Success!!! I just dropped in a tmobile sim and I'm on their network

Happy Days! So, for me, the service took 4 hours (it just took me several days to receive another carrier's sim to confirm the unlock). Yay!
