I just tried getting an unlock code I entered all my credit card info after pressing the button to submit my info it took me back to a blank credit card screen that said enter all info correctly my bank account was charged for the unlock code $14.99 however I never recieved an email with the unlock code. I attempted resubmitting my info, it then said duplicate payment and took me back to another blank credit card screen my accout was charged twice still with no unlock code. I called there customer service its been busy all day. I sent emails to every email address on the site still no responses. I hope they refund me or send me that code. I will never do service with any website I cant directly contact again. SCAM

Wish I was here before and read about this scam site. Paid $22.95 AUD in order to unlock my LG mobile. After two days an unlock code was email which turned out to be FAKE. Tried to contact through support center and was asked to provide video proof. So, a video evidence sent to the seller. But even after waiting for several days, there's no answer at all from seller's side. Be aware of this fraudulent SCAM!!

It is a total SCAM. I paid and never received any unlock code. Emailed them with absolutely no response. Thank god I paid with Paypal, filed a dispute to get my money back. Beware of this scam site.

AdyzLegend, you must be one of the lucky ones or you work for them :P I don't know anyone who has received a code and everyone I speak to has said the same thing "they took my money and I never got a code"

Had sent a notice about order they said i have to wait to receive it. Placed me in a chat site which i think its a scam site and contacting my credit card provider forget paypal because paypal is rubbish at resloving disputes. Plus When the order was complete it took me to a thank you page which was just a banner with the words "bulletproof unlocking" i refreshed the page 4 times and thats all i got

checked the address no code just a authotist code receipt saying paypal had charged me. Wish i just waited now to get the phone unlocked at a mobile shop this week.

Aviod this website there are a joke if your like me in the u.k take your phone to a mobile phone shop or market shop and pay the 10.00 pound and get it done on the spot. Much safer, Just hope i get my credit card provider to back me up now. If they needed the 14 bucks that bad i would donated it by paypal not rip me off!! Class Scamsite!

### service. Thought I finally found a decent unlocking service. Turned out to be a total scam.
I bought 2 unlock codes from them, I got an email saying they couldn't find the codes, and that I will recieve my refund soon.
Yhea I don't think so, no refund * no unlock code * ### service * and so on!!!

You guys, don't use service... You really will get a lighter wallet.

But if you are looking for a decent unlocking service, then use http://unlockusa.com
Used that service 4 times. 4 Times got my unlock codes and they give you detailed instructions for every different phone on how to unlock it.

Good luck!

I paid the for a code. I had several email exchanges with them. At the end I lost my $10. They delayed me long enough that it was too late for my credit card company to undo the charge.

Hey folks ...this is a total fake company ( unlocking.com) I paid and am still awaiting any help from them despite several mails.
People out here who say it worked for them are also fake ( you might have heard jobs in internet like work from home and earn big etc., they get paid for writing such reviews)
Bottom line is it did not work for me and it never worked for anyone.
14 bucks is not a big deal but I want to know if there is some place I can complain to ( BBB ? or any cyber crime org. ) and save other innocent people from shelling out their money.

Hate getting burned... ordered my code based on website stating "30 seconds to process" and when my code hadn't arrived, I then googled to find this information... great, lovely little scam they have going. If they are known to suck so bad, wondering why paypal works with them, will be contacting them.

What is up with Duwie N above, waited 3 weeks but got his code... who the hell is going to spend 3 weeks harassing them to get a code???

I have also ordered codes from them for my blackberry 8520 curve and received three codes within 2 minutes. But the codes are not working. Contaced support, no response. I have opened a case on paypal so I will see what comes out of this. Usually I check everything first but I was so stupid this time.
