    So, I used to think that it is impossible to unlock Sprint iPhone 5s for U.S. sim cards.. but according to this site, its possible? Does anyone have any information? I emailed them and am waiting for a response but I'd like to hear if anyone from here has heard of this site?

    I thought it was possible to unlock it for here. I think it's just the 4S that won't accept US SIM cards.

    Really? My 5 def. doesnt take US sim cards. It is unlocked only for international use. I've been trying for months, from what i've been gathering it is only possible to unlock for international use or you can unlock via jailbreak and a gpp/gevey sim but this isnt ideal as it will break the unlock every time apple updates the firmware.

    Not possible.
    The Sprint i5 can only be unlocked for international use.
    Not US domestic.
    But its your $100, if you want to risk it go for it.

    I love how ppl come here to advertise their sites...lol not to mention they have just "found" the website too....lol (yes I know usually owners doing this)

    PS 15-16 days...they can very well clear out and deactivate their paypal account by then and you will never see your money.

    It's obvious in his context he means "sprint iPhone 5's, not 5s. He just didn't use an apostrophe.

    Most likely a scam

    In my opinion, this is most likely a scam. WHY? This is a free website. There is an email address for support@xdawireless.com.
    The domain xdawireless.com is registered in Ireland at an address that is not found.
    The domain for the registration email (build-your-app.com) for xdawireless.com is available (not taken).
    The country calling code for Ireland is 353. “+13862598932” looks like a US phone number.

    For those who would like to take their changes I would opt against it as they only accept PayPal. PayPal does not accept claims for virtual, digital, or intangible items as can be seen below in an email I just recieved this morning after trying out my business with http://oneunlock.org They are scammers as well. I am waiting for an answer from http://cellunlocker.net on whether they are able to unlock Sprint.

    Yeah it's pretty much a scam but for those foolish enough to try it at least use your credit card when paying so that you can file a chargeback after they try to take your money.

    check the MEID. from what I have noticed if it starts 9900 it's Verizon, if it starts 99000 its Sprint

    Don't

    I bought this service on may 26, they promised the service for 8 business days....I had to file a claim on paypal after one month, in which I luckily had a refund for. I emailed them various times and never received a response in a timely manner. The last response was June 23rd telling me they had suffer due to the weather. I felt very sorry for them, but still they are running a business and a giving bad customer services.

    I have a Sprint Iphone 4S unlocked.I called them up and I'm still in contract and they unlocked it but I have been a customer for over 90 days.I go to Canada and like to use Prepaid sim cards.I was thinking of switching to At&T but they don't unlock phones on contract. Found this site http://www.releasemycode.com/ Some people say it works.If I switch to At&T and that site doesn't work I'm going to be happy to have a Iphone 4S that is unlocked.
