Looks like I may have just got burned. Thought I'd take the plunge despite a mixed bag of reviews online. I paid, got moved along to the page where I enter my phone's details... Filled it in, but one minor problem. There's no button to click, to submit the form! I tried it in 3 different browsers. I've emailed support, but I'm not holding my breath.

I also tried them on Friday. I have got the same problem, no "Proceed" button appears so you cannot sent order. I tried emailing direct with IMEI, no response. I then tried again and the third time I requested a refnd: heard nothing back. I did recieve an eila containging my "order" but the link it contained to download simply opens http://www.unlock-th...com/?id=program, another website.

So I paid £12.17 for nothing, I paid direct so now they have all my details too so it looks like a call to the bank to cancel my card is in order.

In short, as much as I'd like to think the company is legit, it certainly looks like a scam to me.

It's pretty annoying... While people had issues in threads I read, a site rep would often resolve problems and the customers would come back stating all was fine.

Little did I know the site was recently sold. I guess the new owner is less than legitimate. I wonder why someone would invest $10,000 to defraud people. Surely scamming a few people would never return that investment?

Time to try and get my money back through PayPal. Including the extra $5 for 'VAT' and a 'processing fee'.

Still no reply from them. Clearly has now become a scam site. Avoid at all costs.

I ended up getting a code form express-codes on eBay. Couldn't recommend him more. Replies to support questions almost straight away... He claims to be online 18 hours a day and I think it's true. His auction stated that the code would be sent by post, but I emailed and asked if it could be supplied by email and he was happy to oblige. Cost £18 but worth it.

Certainly a scam. Been 2 days and no response from htcsimunlock.com. Can someone suggest an easier way to get out of this mess? I gave my credit card details. Also can someone suggest a better option?

the best unlock site is: www.htcimeiunlock.com, mainly because they are the only one with a database instant checker online, before you have paid
I have also used www.unlock-now.com with success.
www.htccode.com I have not used, but I have talked to customer support and they seem knowledgable
lastly unlocking.com I have used many times and they are very good. They also do HTCs but basically cover all phones. I think they are one of, if not the biggest

I ordered from htcsimunlock.com, no unlock, no refunds, no communication.

Ordered from htcimeiunlock.com and received the (working!) unlock code within 10mins.

Happy days :)

Ordered from HTCSimUnlock too. Said they couldn't find my code and asked me to pay more money for a deep search - yeah right.

Selected the refund option and 5 days later I have no refund - avoid at all costs.

How easy is the paypal resolution process? Am I likely to get my money back?

Hi,

I ordered my HTC Desire unlock code from htcimeiunlock.com at 7.30am in the UK and the code took 10 minutes to arrive. The price was $25, a small price to pay to be freed from your network operator lock. So in short, I had a good experience with this particular unlock site.

Regards,
Aleks

Hi All,

I have used the site www.htcsimunlock.com recently for getting the code for HTC Wildfire but in vain. I had given them all the information required but I got an email saying that they need to do a deeper search and wanted some extra money for that. I declined that offer and was told that within 3 working days I will be refunded the money automatically.

The service was good in terms of geeting back to me, I got my first email within 30mis of giving them the details. But as for the refund of money, I have not heard anything. Tried contacting them via email but got an automted reply so I am not sure if I will get the money back also or not.

Very disappointed with the response, I used some other site and was able to get the code within 20 mins though they also asked for 'deeper search' but then also it was cheaper then this deal.

I wont recommend this site to anyone as it is costly and you wont get any refund (6 days and still waiting for it)

:)

Attention! Deceive.
www.htcsimunlock.com paid for the code to unlock Desire Orange. On the mailbox Rishel response that the code is not found. Money, however, did not return. Wrote them on the mailbox, but always comes the same response from the robot.


Well, the same happened to me. After payment i received the following email:

"Hello from HTCSimUnlock.com!

Thank you for your recent order for the unlock code of your HTC Phone. Unfortunately,we are unable to find the unlock code for your IMEI Number.

As per our 100% refund guarantee, we have provided you a full refund.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, but we hope that you are satisfied with our service and refund guarantee!

Regards,
HTCSimUnlock.com Sales Staff"

Since then no refund and no answer at all to my emails (it's been 3 weeks now). I also tried the Pay-pal resolution center, no help ;)

It seems that HTCSimUnlock.com is a scam!

Please avoid them!!!

I got my code from HTCSimUnlock.com last week, within 10 minutes of ordering. However, I ordered my code at just before 1pm UK time, rather than outside of normal UK business hours. I don't know where they are physically located, but other sites of this nature are often in India, so it's probable that you ordered in the middle of the night, and I rather suspect the process isn't as automated as you'd think.

In addition, they do say in their FAQ that in 5% of cases they have to go back HTC to get a code, and that can take 24 hours.

Send an email to the support email address on the website to ask where your code is. I'm sure you will get your code - you just need to be patient.

To answer your second question, the unlock code doesn't change so if your phone ever gets sim locked again, the same code should unlock it.

Regards,

Dave


Please be aware of this site htcsimunlock.com. Although they say that 100% refund gurantee, i ardered an unlock which they failed to provide and still i haven't received my refund. Every time i contact them via email i get an automated reply back. They operate under different names ie:swreg etc but please BEWARE OF THEM!!!!! these people are right cheats.!!!!!

Following is their whois record and they might operate under other websites as well.

Just used these guys - http://www.htcimeiunlock.com - to unlock my DHD on 3UK.

All went smoothly.

Can recommend them I guess based on that single transaction.

Stay away from this company.They are scammers.Expect to be asked to pay the highest price and when you ask for a refund you won't get one.Their 100% gaurantee is a joke.Was summed up quite well by one review who is going to sue a company for $20.This company must be making a small fortune needs looking into.Stay well away,wish I had read these first.

PS One other thing once they have your card number they can access your account thenever they like.

You should first try the sim unlock utility in xda developers and if it works give the guy a donation before paying any shabby website for an unlock code.
