5.1 It is the customer’s responsibility to check the compatibility of their phone with the network they intend to use once unlocked.

Lost, stolen and abused phones are barred/blocked in the country once reported and cannot be used on any network once this occurs.


6.1 All prices and delivery times are as quoted. Delivery times are guidelines set by the relative networks.

6.2 These delivery times are variable and can decrease as well as increase without notice – this will apply to all unlock providers as well as us – when your unlock is in progress and submitted to the supplier we will immediately notify you of any changes to delivery times and keep you informed right up to the point of unlocking.

All of the products on our websites are covered by our 100% Money Back Guarantee. We provide such a guarantee to give honest customer’s the reassurance that the product they are ordering will be delivered in good faith and will be fit for purpose.

In order to protect the legitimacy of this guarantee for all parties concerned, the guarantee itself is subject to the following terms;

7.1 Guarantee does NOT apply where phone appears as BLOCKED once unlocked (For example phones are blocked in the US if reported lost, stolen or abused).

7.2 Guarantee applies only if our attempt to unlock your iPhone returns an ‘unavailable’ report to our server from the unlock supplier/network.


8.1 Completion of the unlock process is made by email notification to the email address provided, simple instructions to complete the unlock procedure by for example connecting to iTunes is contained in the email.


9.1 No changes can be made to orders which have been fulfilled and the unlock processed with the supplier, but where customer error has occurred in relation to the provision of data about the phone. Nor can refunds be provided in this instance.

9.2 In circumstances where an order is yet to be completely fulfilled and customer has provided incorrect data, we will endeavour to cancel any existing order and replace it with new order details.

If we are able to cancel the existing order successfully, the delivery time of any such new order will be from the point of change and not from the point of the first sale being processed.

We cannot guarantee cancellation. If we are unable to cancel the order, the customer would be required to re-order with correct details. We may provide an unlock ‘credit’ in that case, or require a fresh order to be paid for, at our sole discretion.


10.1 It is not necessary to restore your phone unless you have a jailbroken or rooted device, in which case the jailbreak must be removed prior to unlocking. We cannot advise on jailbreaking / rooting a device.

10.2 customers who have a jailbroken / rooted phone prior to unlocking are strongly advised to make sure that their ‘Contacts’, ‘Messages’ and any other important data is properly backed up (for example synced with iTunes for iPhones) prior to attempting any unlocking procedure. We will not accept responsibility for the loss of customer data should this occur for any reason.


11.1 We will always endeavor to take reasonable care to ensure that all of your personal details provided to us are stored securely using standard industry practices.

11.2 Your personal details will only ever be kept for the purposes of processing your order(s).

11.3 We will never pass any of your details on to a 3rd party without your prior consent unless required for you to purchase.

11.4 We do not store customer payment card details, you enter these directly onto the secure pages of our payment provider(s) (such as PayPal or Paddle.com) or directly with our secure online resellers/retailers. These are all Level 1 Service Providers under 12.8 of the PCI DSS.


12.1 We reserve the right to terminate the order of any customer who demonstrates any form of verbal abuse or aggression towards any member of our staff either verbally or in writing. All communication will be terminated with such customer’s and all correspondence forwarded to our legal department. Any such customer would also forfeit their right to a refund in this instance.


13.1 We will not tolerate any attempts to obtain our services by fraudulent means. We report all such attempts to defraud our company to the relevant credit reference agencies and the competent authorities.

13.2 To combat fraud, we are obliged to log the IP addresses of customer computers at each and every stage of the buying and delivery process.

13.3 Any attempts to defraud our company are passed on to our dedicated Debt Collection and Fraud Department. We already work closely with a variety of Global Debt Recovery agents worldwide to successfully prove that our services have been digitally delivered in cases of fraud or mis-claims of ‘non-receipt’. We are able to successfully recover monies in cases where payment has been reversed or charged back.

13.4 In case of any chargeback, the associated IMEI will be blacklisted, preventing it from working on all networks worldwide. This is PERMANENT.


14.1 If a phone is reported lost or stolen (or abused), it may well be ‘Blacklisted’ (also known as ‘Blocked’ or ‘Barred’), preventing it from ever being used again in the US on any of the major networks. It is not possible to find out if a ‘SIM Locked’ or ‘SP Locked’ phone has been ‘Blacklisted’ from any particular network or all major networks without first performing the ‘unlock’ procedure using our services.

Therefore, if we undertake an unlock and you find out the phone is in fact logged as lost, stolen or abused, we cannot then refund your payment. We cannot legally make a ‘blacklisted’ phone work again. (See articles 5.2 and 7.1.)
