    Is the CellUnlocker website legitimate?

    It's one of the stickies in this Rogers forum. I would tend to trust them, since they're a HoFo sponsor, but I'm getting some red flags.

    I posted my IMEI earlier today and made payment, but not having received a response from the "automated" system, I read the FAQ and it stated that it can sometimes take ten days or so for the "automated" system to give a response.

    Secondly, just for fun I visited the website and entered a few "dummy" (non-existent) IMEIs. To my amazement, the website (supposedly) checked on them (this takes a few seconds) and then reported back that yes, they're valid, and an unlock code exists for them.

    Now I'm starting to wonder if the site is actually legit: what do you guys think? If it's not, do you think any damage would be done by giving them my IMEI?

    I've used them to unlock my Nokia E-71, no issues. Tried a couple of other phones, but the code couldn't be found, my fee was refunded. I've no issues with them. Depending upon your phone if may take a day or two.

    Howard speaks well of them in his signature, I used them to unlock my SGS2, they are legit and will get your phone unlocked.

    There are a few of us in this thread that participate in this "dark side" of the industry, but tend not to advertise on HoFo because we're too cheap

    BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!! cellunlocker.net BUYERS BEWARE they are crooks and scammers. I ordered my unlock code. Followed there instructions and they wrecked my phone. Now i gotta buy a new phone. I asked them if i could get a new code since i gotta buy a new phone they said for 50 percent and make a video for them. Now why would anyone do that after what they did for me. Cellunlocker is only worried about the all mighty dollar and dont give one crap about you. Why they have your money wont refund it.Cellunlockers ill leave my feed back about all over the web and every forum just how you run your business. And id love to talk about this matter in person if you would like on my dime. SO BUYER BEWARE!!!!!! Unlocking comanys are like drug dealers.......
