    For those of you that installed iBlacklist on your iPhone 4S and had it on your previous iPhone, what's the process for activating it once you've installed it and already purchased it previously?

    When I got a replacement unit from Apple, due to display issues, I had to email the devs. There was no other way (that I could see) to do it.

    The devs for iBlacklist suck btw, because when I emailed them, they made it seem like I was trying to get over on them or something. They actually wanted me to send a scanned copy of the receipt I got from Apple that showed my old phone UDID and the one for my new phone.

    I told them to stuff it.

    The process and the requirements for this are in the iBlackList manual which is available at their web site.

    If you need to transfer your license to a new device, please do the following:
    • Send your transaction ID, old device register key and new device register key to sales@iblacklist.com.br and wait for further instruction.

    Sounds like it would just be easier to pay the $10 again

    Yes its been these way with several cydia tweeks , bitesms i always buy again because they request invoice ID along with the paypal email , iblacklist also ; they should implement what lockinfo developer do ! easy transfer with a confirmation email to the one you use to pay !

    Bitesms is the easiest to transfer, the customer service is awesome, no reason to buy it again, just shoot them an email and they'll respond asap.

    I re installed iblacklist and lockinfo right away with no problems.

    These guys are pure crap. No one seems to get the same answer either. One friend of mine emailed them to transfer the license and they wanted to charge him 6$. Another has emailed them 5 times and heard nothing. I wish there was a decent alternative.

    I originally paid for iBlacklist. Got a replacement phone, emailed support twice and they didn't even respond. So I just downloaded the cracked version. Makes me mad because I supported this program legally.

    Sounds like a scumbag company.
    I heard tons of complains like that for iblacklist.
    I would never give them a penny.
    They been shady like that for years now.

    I have iProtect, and it's made by the same company, iDevMobile.

    I spent 2 weeks flaming them all over Twitter and harassing them through email before they transferred my license to my new phone. I was so pissed.

    I saw tons of other people experiencing the same problems with them on Facebook and Twitter.

    I think these posts all sum it up. I won't pay for it again out of principle that I paid for it legally already once.

    Yup, I emailed them and never heard back.

    That's really poor business practice. Again, this is a matter of principle at this point. I'm one of the users that will make DONATIONS to developers when they don't even sell their tool. I did this yesterday as a matter of fact with a developer that developed a tool for the Mac that allows you to copy/store your Photostream files locally. Again, it was a free tool, but I paypal'd him $10 -- I just think it's the right thing to do since I got a lot of value from that tool he developed. I have no problem paying someone for software, but I do have a problem paying for it twice, especially when you get piss-poor customer service.

    I hear you.
    I donated $20 to the jb dream team also.
    It's just scumbags like iblacklist that I would never support.

    I bought iBlacklist over a year ago on my 4, for $12. Their website states - although not terribly clearly - that if you bought within a year ago, you can send them your PayPal transaction info and they will transfer your license. If it was over a year ago, you can pay for a transfer to your new phone at a 50% discount, so it cost me $6. Well worth it, in my opinion.

    Why would it matter if you bought it a year ago or sooner?
    So every year you update your device you have to buy it again?
    Doesn't make any sense.

    The funny thing is that WHEN the iphone gets a screen bump a lot apps on the store will claim that they had to "re-work" there app so they will release as "version 2.0" and charge for it again like they most charge for separate versions of the ipad/phone app :)
