Agreed with the above posters. Paid via Paypal and, despite being promised a 'typical 1-day turnaround' I waited 10 days.
I sent a few emails to their customer service email address, all of which came back with an automated response (but from different names!).
I finally received a 'code', but no instructions on how to use it. After a little Googling I did find out how to input the code, but it didn't work anyway - surprise!
This is an example of the worst kind of scamming opportunists. AVOID… Read Full Review

I was successful in unlocking my wife's lg shine from att. The service was more than they advertised -- I think I paid $9.99 whereas they advertise that they will unlock any phone for $3.99, and the code did take a couple of hours instead of arriving instantly, but compared to going out to a store that unlocks phones, and paying $10 to $20, this was great!! I read a lot of negative reviews right after I bought the code, but at least for me, it worked… Read Full Review

As many reviews above. No code and no refund. Looks like they're just stealing money if people forget to dispute.

This is a scam. The people that are 5 stars are probably cell-unlock attempting to boost their rating. Frankly, you are at their mercy. No phone numbers, no customer service - NO guarantee you get their money back despite their promise. They can say it, but how can YOU guarantee that it will happen? You can't. Use PayPal if you still want to try because PayPal will refund your money when they don't produce the goods. Promised 1-2 business days, started contacting at the close of 2 business days… Read Full Review

They say that they will provide you with a code within 24 hours, and when that time is passed they just send you a message informing you that couldn't provide the service blah blah. In that e-mail they say also that they will provide you with details to their "dedicated accounts team" who will deal with your refund. In my case, they haven't emailed me anything. So next day I went directly to the PayPal site to raise a dispute where I found out that you can get an instant refund by just visiting… Read Full Review

They could not do my Nokia N95 8GB (but I don't think anyone can)
they did not refund me within 7 days.
I complained yesterday (the deadline) and they refunded me today.
Lucky I paid via PayPal
Also glad Unlock emailed me their failure notification. Maybe they are delivering the goods for some people...? Why no refund on time though? Overloaded with refund work?! :-)
I wouldn't risk it again though.

What ever you do do not use this site as it is a complete scam.
I asked for an unlock code for my Siemens phone they took the money from paypal but were unable to issue a code, they then promised to refund it but never have.
Unfortunately I only get bank statement every three months so did not realise what had happened.
Contacted PP but all I got from them that it was passed the 45 day deadline to complain.
Sent numerous emails to company but still no refund to date.
Only wish I had checked… Read Full Review

I have another case of having to go to paypal resolution centre to getting a refund.
cell-unlock-shop.com say they will refund your money, but appears will only do so after you complain. Terrible customer service.

cell-unlockers.com is a big scam stay away from them you will be thankful to me.
I place an order with them for my HTC t-mobile phone, after 2 days later they sent me an e-mail saying they are still looking for the unlocking code. After a day later they said they did not have a code for my phone. They charged me $7.99 for the code which they didn't have it. I was informed that he has instructed the so called billing dept to refund my money but allow them atleast 5 business days. I placed the… Read Full Review

BUYER BEWARE - This is a fraudulent business site. They NEVER contact you or provide you any service whatsoever and still charge your credit card. This is a total rip off. No customer service exists and emails will be left unanswered.

I had a Siemens S56 phone that was locked to Cingular service. I picked this site because it said that it was only 1.99 to unlock phone. When it came time to pay it ended up being 9.99. (The old bait and switch.) I paid the 9.99 and received the code in about 6 to 8 hours with a link to the instructions on how to enter the code. When I went to the link, there were no instructions for any Siemens phones!! I contacted them via their website many many times with no reply. I finally had to do a… Read Full Review
