I checked this Unlock Telcom website to unlock my nokia 6600, which was on their unlockable mobile list, without any specifications mentioned. But after paying the fee, the emailed back as said nokia 6600 slide was not on their list. I emailed them back saying that for other models they have specified which exact model, but this wasn't the case for nokia 6600 and asked for refund. But they refused the refund and instead wanted to send me a sim card, which I didn't need. So I lost my money. (read more)

I paid for an unlocking code from Unlock Telcom for a Sony Ericcson on 22 Dec, 08. Up to this day, I have not received the code and their website is even down. I've found them not return emails and as yet have not received the code. (read more)

It seems my experience was very different from all the previous posters.
Ordered a code for a phone not on their list by accident. But then paid the difference to unlock a more expensive phone, and received working code with 24 hours. Also answered all of my questions before I forked out the extra cash, as there are so many scammers about I had to double check.
Looks like I may have been lucky. This was Nov 08.
Looks like their website is down now though (read more)

This is the second time i used these people i should of known both times i wanted an unlock code and both times advertised they did it but what a shock when it came to it they no longer did my phone but i could have a sim if i wanted cheeky or what. What a good way to make money the reason it takes so long to get to you is because they are writing new terms up. (read more)

They advertised that they could unlock my phone, however later mailed me to say that they did not as yet have an unlock code. However I could buy a sim form them or wait for the unlock code to be released as far as I am aware? I waited for this code and now notice that they want another £30! Do not appear to be a reputable company from my experience. (read more)

I do not recommend to use Unlock Telcom,
I paid Unlock Telecom through Paypal for three unlock codes for different phones, which I never received.
No reply to e-mails, phone number seems to be non existent, finally paypal saw in my favour and refunded my money. (read more)

Having given me a price to unlock my phone by model number after half an hour they informed me that my model was not one they could unlock - the fact they already quoted a price to do something they were in fact unable to supply suggests that this is a total waste of time. (read more)

The service they supply to me was to take my money and tell me nothing at all in return. When I complained they then told me they can't unlock your phone and sent you some generic unlocking info. (garbage) which they scraped from t'internet. When I further complained they say you should have read the terms and conditions before buying from them.
In compensation they send you an out-of-date Orange SIM card.
Mm, I wonder if I will do business with them again? (read more)

Unlock Telecom took my money from Paypal the same day and promised my code in 72 hours along with a confirmation email. I never got either! I emailed them via their website many times asking for the code or even a response. Nothing. Not even a "we are busy" response.
I have filed a complaint with Paypal so I hope to get my money back. I know its only £3.99 but why should companies get away with this?
DO NOT BUY A CODE FROM THIS COMPANY (read more)

SAME HERE!!! I'm in Australia, paid Unlock Telcom www.unlocktelecom.co.uk through paypal, got the same email as the other chap saying my phone has not been tested and their unlock codes may not work (THEY KNOW THE MODEL OF PHONE BEFORE YOU PAY, WHY CANT THEY SAY THAT FIRST!!!) Big surprise the codes didn't work, now because I tried the wrong unlock code too many times my phone is PERMANENTLY LOCKED TO THE WRONG NETWORK!. I could have taken it somewhere and paid $45 and had it done... (read more)

My storey is exactly the same as Steevo's and Unlock Telecom are ripping people off. Tried all avenues to contact them but nothing. This I believe is a case for Trading Standards or even Police to look into because I'm very concerned about this company's intentions. They are making money for doing nothing and I don't believe they have anything to offer. (read more)

Unlock Telcom took my money, £3.99, then took several days to send e-mail in which they informed me that "my phone model (a Motorola V3) was unusual and difficult to unlock" and they had not tested it so the code may not unlock it, they then suggested I take it to a phone shop.
In an attempt to get my money returned I contacted them on all three of the e-mail addresses they offer and got an automated answer explaining how busy they are, then contacted the telephone number provided and got... (read more)
