3rd party IMEI unlock for T-Mobile iPhone?

Hello. Are there any 3rd party services that provide IMEI unlocking for T-Mobile locked iPhones?

Very expensive and take up to 20-25days. Also IMEI must be clean and needs to remain clean throughout the process.

Sorry to go off topic but. My question is why did these unlocks take such a big jump in price?
Who's getting paid off here carrier employees or Apple employees?

I wonder too. Personally I'm taking advantage of it. I have lots of family members who are entitled to 5 unlocks per year on att and they will never use it. I just sell the unlocks on eBay. In fact signing up to a contract on att just to sell unlocks is worth it.

Maybe as there are more devices they can just stamp a price they want because theres no shortage of customers ? Idk.

Apple never unlocks phones for anyone, process for iPhones always has to be initiated by the carrier and only the carrier.

Don't know if many of you remember but Steve Jobs had gifted a iPhone 4 to Russia president in 2010 and it was locked to AT&T....http://www.redmondpie.com/steve-jobs...att-till-date/

Actually T-Mobile has always been over 100. AT&T was 99 cents for a while but those went up to over 100. They're still in the 30-50 range but the guaranteed can be done for 120 or so.
