I paid some money to get my iPhone unlocked and later they contacted me and said that they need more money to unlock. Already seemed like a scam. I asked what for they need more money and they replied something about that their original unlock method did not work so they need to use something else. No one even explained the reason, they just told me something that made no sense. I refused and said that I no longer need their service. Terrible site, don't give them your hard earned money and avoid iPhoneIMEI!

    Dear Free,
    We attempted to remove your iCloud locked device from the previous owner's account but were unable to do so as the iCloud Account associated with the iDevice (xxxxxx) is unfortunately marked by Apple as Lost/Stolen. This does NOT necessarily mean that the iPhone has been reported lost to the carrier - this is something totally different. It means the device/iCloud account has been reported using FindMyiPhone.

    As stated on the website before purchase it is not possible to remove the Activation Lock on iDevices which are in Apple's iCloud lost/stolen database using our Clean service. There will be a premium service coming soon which can unlock this device, we don't have an exact timescale just yet, so you will be informed as soon as it is available via email.
    In the meantime, you may bypass the iCloud lock using these instructions - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UBJ13cRcgs
    In the meantime, you have been given a voucher for the full value of your purchase, under the email address xxx which you can use on a different device or against a different unlock for a different unit, or you can save the voucher to use when the Premium Service is shortly launched.
    As we have already prepared your unlock and incurred the unlocking charge, we cannot issue a card refund for handsets which are rejected for being on the blacklist (as per our terms and conditions - https://iphoneimei.net/refund-policy)
    However, if you have proof the device is not lost/stolen e.g. the original invoice from Apple or your carrier, either electronic or physical, and do not wish to to wait for our Premium Service to unlock this IMEI and have no other IMEI to unlock, please reply to this email with the proof so we can obtain a refund from our supplier and issue a card refund as opposed to the voucher.
    .
    There are numerous services such as http://cleancheck.me (FREE) which can be used to identify Lost/Stolen handsets.
    As a goodwill gesture, you have been given a £34.99 Voucher for this unsuccessful iCloud Removal.
    In order to use your voucher, simply add items to your cart as normal and click 'Use Voucher' and when checking out, enter your email address and click 'Use Voucher' and the voucher will automatically be applied to your purchase. This voucher will not expire.
    Kind regards,
    Stephanie
    Operations Manager

    I paid $1 for their IMEI check service and was told that they could unlock my phone. Then after paying $64 for their service I waited over 2 weeks only to be told that it would cost another $25 and only take 3-7 days. After paying this additional fee and waiting another 14 days I was told that they couldn't unlock the phone and I would have to wait until Sprint allowed for unlocking. I requested a refund and was told that it would take 1-3 days, well I have been waiting a week and guess what no refund. This company is a total scam. Avoid at all costs!

    I could gather some information on Datacorp Ltd. and David, who is behind those unlocking services based in the UK since 2011 or earlier. So if you got scammed by iPhoneIMEI or OfficialiPhoneUnlock, just like me, have a read here ( http://iphone-imei-net.blogspot.co.id/2017/08/david-joseph-taylor-from-shepton-mallet.html ) and report him as individual as well as the business Datacorp Ltd. to actionfraud.police.uk, which can also reported by someone living outside of the UK.
