I got my AT&T iPhone 5 unlocked through him. Took 24-48 hours, mainly because it was during a sale and he had a high volume. You have nothing to worry about in working with him. Unlock wise he's one of the best around now.

I am also need an iphone 5 FIDO unlocking too! Chronic charge about 150! I found a shop in vancouver would do it for 110, but right now the unlocking for fido/roger is on a hold and no one is offering at this time. The other day I just unlocked an iphone 5 AT&T for 3 bucks:rolleyes:

I just asked my buddy, who DID use chronic and he said he was charged $35USD. Why is it so much more for FIDO?

I really want to know this too! Everything is much more expensive here in Canada :(! Your friend should had went on ebay and unlock his ATT iphone for only 3 dollars from unlock fusion!
Nah, he wanted to use Chronic. Sometimes cheapest isn't best. If I do it, I'll use chronic as well.

Be very wary!!

RE Chronic Unlock Service. I Do Not Recommend this company. As I write this post I have been waiting over a month for an Express unlock service for an Iphone4, a Non responsive support center and noticed lots angry comments on Facebook, so at this stage not a postive outcome I would NOT recommend, I will keep you posted.

Chronic Unlocks

Don't use these people - if you have a Canadian provider they will unlock for half the price as long as your contract is in good standing.

I sent them a request to unlock and they charged my credit account immediately. Its been several weeks and nothing has happened. I contacted them several times through their website and never received the courtesy of a response.

I did it through Rogers for $50CDN instantaneously. I have requested Chronic Unlocks to cancel and refund. Still no response.

Don't waste your time.

Over 2 months and nothing

Same here, I paid for the unlock 2 months ago, still nothing.
He was replying for my update request for the first month but now he is not replying at all. Even if i ask for refund, nothing.
I htought chronic was for real based on the threads i read here but i guess they were all scam?

If it helps, I had my iPhones recently unlocked from simpleunlocks.me -- all 3 completed in about a weeks time, and communication was great.

Chronic Scam

Is a complete scam. I ordered an unlock from this guy like 3 months ago. To date still nothing. I emailed several times, no answers. He will send an email after a month or so, just to make sure you will not contact PayPal. After the 45 day limit set by PayPal he will disappear with your money and there in nothing you can do about it.
Stay away from chronic unlocks, unless you are willing to sponsor his Vegas escapades.

My 5S unlocked was rejected by ATT with chronic and they refunded my money pretty quick. I also imessaged Will and he was quick to respond (within a few hours) Though the service didn't unlock my phone, they did refund my money as promised.

There are so many scammers in the unlock business, Chronic Unlocks has to be one of the biggest scammers as he operates under a cloak of respectability as a former Dev team member with the jailbreak community.

Guess he's gone rogue , they scammed me too.:(

I used iPhone Unlock Guys for an AT&T iphone 6 unlock recently, can't give definite opinions for sure, but they did unlock my iPhone 6 a couple days ago pretty fast, in 2 days.

They look professional and were responsive with messages -

Thanks
Chronic Unlocks is an INSIDIOUS/CHEATED internet company now. This company has been doing BAD by NOT fulfilled the unlocking jobs with customers, so I posted a TRUTH/HONEST feedback here to alert everyone but ****ING Chronic Unlocks just remove my posting. ****ING STINKY CHEATED DOG is Chronic Unlocks.

Check out samunlocks, their prices are reasonable and service is pretty excellent as well from my personal experience. Others have also recommended them.
