    Guys,

    I know lot of fake websites are around which takes away our money by promising iphone unlock software. This time i found many listings on ebay website confirming factory unlock for iphone for $189. Please click on the below URL. Can some of the experts here confirm whether this is a genuine thing or just a hoax??

    eBay India: Permanent iPhone Unlock Factory Unlock Worldwide AT&T (item 160571806221 end time 11-May-2011 10:21:39 IST)

    I even sent some communication to the seller and he responded back confirming that its a genuine permanent factory unlock. if this is true then i wont mind spending $189 since it will be really worth it.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    i would be cautious, read the users comments and feedback. a lot fo people claim to unlock but lie to get lots of cash

    plus the person has 100% positive feedback.. if i relied on unlock i would want to try this, but whats to say apple or the carriers wont find these unlock codes and some how re lock it or even if it really works.. if it does then the dev team have one less job to worry about lol no one will want to use their unlock.. well those that rely on unlock of course.

    Yes I know. The very reason I gave a second look to this stuff because the seller @eBay who posted this has 100% feedback. In fact I contacted him as well and the guy is very quick in responding to my queries. But as u said one needs to be cautious and right now I am in dilemma whether to go ahead or not
    Anyways thanks so much for your feedback

    Edit: $189 is quite a lot of money to give away blindly without knowing the reliability

    A) Look at specific feedback on unlock. There is a trick, you sell 0.01 cent ebooks (feedback) and buildup massive amount of positive feedback, before you sell some crap on ebay and make lots of cash.

    B) Don't pay through paypal using your bank account. Only pay with credit card, and if you can American Express.

    thats what i was thinking that there could be a way to trick ebay and get 100% positive feed back.. but i was not sure because i never use ebay. thats easy to get so much good feedback and it does not tell you what they bought from the person does it? so they could of made a tone of fake accounts and then put all good feedback and spend like 30 cents doing so...

    If feedback is private it's a red flag. Though there are ways around it, you should do a completed items search and see how that stuff is selling, and then contact the buyer. It's against the rules, but buyers don't usually report you contacting them, unless they super nerds with no life.

    i think so, because what if you rush and pay and then get your iphone re locked down the line before you change device? its a risk that might not be worth taking

    but on the other hand what if by then apple manage to stop it and you have to be quick to do it for a few firmwares?

    I dont rely on unlock so i dont know how you feel sitting for some times months needing unlock, if i was in that situation i might think "i dont care" and try it any way..

    how desperate are you to unlock?

    @unleashed if u ask any iPhone user having a locked phone he will always say that he is desperate to unlock :D I am no different! However since I bought this phone from US hardly a month back it's not fair for me being impulsive to unlock and take any foolish decision. I think I can afford to wait for some more days when people r waiting for unlock since 6 months now until something concrete and conclusive news on unlock comes up. What say?

    when i used to rely on unlock in 2007 when there where no factory unlocked devices i could not even bare to wait a week that it took for new unlock tool to be released lol..

    but your right, holding off and waiting for results and see if it works and if apple will be able to stop it, because they will fight back and try stop it

    this solution was blocked in 4.3.2 so it would be a very expensive unlock for 4.3.1..

    just wait for ultrasn0w to work on a newer baseband for free

    You can unlock if you're on the right baseband
