    I have seen a lot of scams on the internet. I am not sure which one is legit. Please share your experience. Thanks. :rolleyes:

    Chronicunlocks.com is working. Just expect a slow turnaround time.

    I had my 5S unlocked by Chronic. It took a long time (around 40 days), but it did work. They were very good about sending updates and responding to email.

    And it's more expensive. About $100 now compared to last January when I paid $1.99.

    It's easier to just buy an unlocked one from Apple with the prices they're charging these days.

    Whoa! What happened that made the prices jump so high? Earlier this year I paid not even half that and now the same site is charging high also?!

    I was under the impression that it was (directly or indirectly) connected to the whole political "glitch" regarding unlocking from earlier this year:

    On the other hand, I just came across some seemingly good news in relation to that type of thing too: http://arstechnica.com/business/201...ells-wireless-carriers-to-unlock-cell-phones/
