I was unsure about paying for a code, but after hours of research trying to find a phone unlock code for free I gave up. I entered my phone information and the screen told me that I would have my code instantly, so I paid $7.99 and I did have my code right away (it was stated in writing that you may not get your code for a little bit).
I have personally used cellunlocker a few times now. The codes have showed up within the first 24 hours as promised. I had 1 hick up, after contacting the support team, everything got resolved. I will continue to refer cell unlocker to friends and family. Thanks guys !!
Awesome service. I made my order and I put the wrong email and I sent them an email telling to fix the wrong email and they replied on the same day fixing my email. After 2 days I received the code and thanks to the step by step instructions I have unclock my samsung galaxy s4.
I bought an iPhone 5S from Koodo and decided days later to unlock it. Koodo could have unlocked it for me, but I'd have to wait 3 months and I wanted to do it now. So I started Googling unlocking services online. Many came up, but who do I trust giving my money AND IMEI? With further research, I stumbled upon a thread on XDA Developers, which is a popular forum for Android devices. Some of the members there mentioned that they used Cellunlocker and that it worked. That was enough for me to try it out (I'm the kind of person that tends to take one for the team). Cellunlocker.net is not to be confused with other services with similar names! I haven't used or read up on the others so I can't comment, but be careful!
I placed my order just after midnight February 24 via Paypal (dispute incase something happens) and received a completion email with instructions roughly 14 hours later! I was at work so I had to wait an additional 6 hours before I could get home and unlock it. I read the instructions on the email and proceeded in doing it. I put my SIM card from WIND Mobile into it so that it would show "Activation Required" at the lock screen. Don't use or touch the phone at this time! Plugged the iPhone into my computer, then opened up iTunes. Right after iTunes opens, it asked me to log in with my Apple ID. So I entered that in and the next thing I know, it says that my iPhone has been unlocked in iTunes. All I can think was "that was easy". Immediately I started receiving service from WIND Mobile. Afterwards, I checked websites that check your IMEI to see if it's unlocked and sure enough it said it was.
I know this a long review, but I wanted to be detailed and share my first time experience with this unlocking service. They are legit! The price is a bit high, but then again I didn't get quotes from other services to compare. Highly recommended and this will be my go to place for unlocking future phones. I will be copying and pasting this onto other review sites, because I promised them I would. And I am a REAL person, not a damn employee/staff/bot!
tried unlocking through att&t for over a week .did not work.found this website on line and you tube.gave it a try and bingo ... my phone is unlocked. They walked me through step by step Thank you . I say try it !!!
Tip for consumers: Give it a try .you wont regret it. very simple and quick.Ask L about CellUnlocker.net
Maybe it was just my brand of phone, but I got my unlocking code from them within minutes...really... for my Blackberry Bold. And it worked as promised. Instructions on how to unlock where clear and plentiful. What could be better than that?
Tip for consumers: Expect it to take hours to get a response through email. However, they did respond and answer every email.Ask Rein about CellUnlocker.net
On Sun 22 Feb. I had purchased an unlock code with instructions. I had some problems and wrote an e-mail explaining the installation procedure. I believe that this was sometime in the afternoon. We exchanged 3 or 4 letters, before I noticed something different about the operation of my Blackberry. I then told support and they responded by asking me for a photo of a certain page of my phone. I sent it. Next morning, I received an email that said, "Congratulations", that my phone was now unlocked. Actually, going by their instructions, I had unlocked the evening before. They just verified it. It came as a surprise to me as I didn't think that it was so easy to do. Their support was exceptional and paying just a little more for the service was really well worth it. I highly recommend their service. They were fast, as far as I am concerned. Less than 24 hours, much less.
I had a phone which was unlocked using the code from them back in Aug 2014 but somehow this time (Feb 2015) when my (unrooted) phone as for the code again, it was not accepting it. I contacted the after-sale and they provided me with different solutions, but unfortunately none worked. I finally solve my problem by rooting my phone and delete some corrupted system files. I was then able to use the unlock code again. The customer service was helpful although they were not able to resolve my issue. I do appreciate their effort.
Stay away from this service. They don't deliver on services, they avoid providing support, they are rude when you do finally receive support, and then they are very difficult to receive a refund from when it's required. There are other services out there. Use them instead.
Without a doubt this is the worst company I've ever had the misfortune to deal with. But I would hesitate to call it a "company." My experience suggests it's more of a teenage or twenty-something slacker camping out in his parents' basement, rising from the mattress on the floor only as required to process a few orders a day.
The web-based ordering experience works well enough, but only because it's automated. If an order goes sideways, the entire experience with this outfit goes sideways right along with it.
If you want to communicate with anyone here, you wouldn't have much luck unless you're willing to commit a substantial amount of time to chasing them through every means possible -- email, telephone and web chat.
It was my experience that only one in every ten emails are responded to.
They never answer the phone, and there's no voicemail. Every once in a while you'll catch the guy on web chat and that's when you'll finally be able to communicate. But communication itself was awful.
The person I spoke to was rude, argumentative, and dismissive of my concerns. I had to coach him to be calm and actually provide assistance. But even then, he sent me down a rabbit hole with hours of troubleshooting that weren't necessary. He already knew that iPhone 6 unlocks with Bell were problematic and was just buying himself time.
Despite advertising iPhone 6 unlocks, this outfit was unable to provide an actual unlock, despite having communicated that an unlock had been performed.
I'm now in the process of requesting a refund for their failure to deliver the promised service and, not surprisingly, this is proving to be the most difficult and painful process of all. I was promised a refund within a few hours last Thursday, but here it is Monday and I've yet to receive it, and my email are again being ignored.
Bottom line: stay away from this service. They don't deliver, they avoid providing support, they are rude when you do finally receive support, and then they are very difficult to receive a refund from when it's required. There are other services out there. Use them instead.
Overall, this is a good deal on an unlock code. However, do not use them if you're in a rush or care about customer service. My code took almost twice as long as it was supposed to, almost all emails went unanswered, and if you call them for support their automated system hangs up on you. One email reply I DID receive apologized for the delay and promised my code by the end of that day, which didn't happen. If you read their Facebook page you'll see a disturbing number of people who never got codes at all. Ultimately in my case I did receive my code and it worked.
I'm from Argentina and I was in need of unlocking a mobile. Among all of the unlocking websties I chose Cellunlocker with a little hesitation I must admit.
Y payed thru Paypal and in less than 1 hour I received a few codes on my email. I tried for a few while to unlock my mobile without any luck but after a few different methods they describe in the email I managed to unlock it.
Couldn't be happier.
Tip for consumers: Try every method one or two times in different scenarios. Make sure you're 100% stock on everything (ROM, Kernel, etc)Ask Sebas about CellUnlocker.net
Most companies seem good but it is when things do not go right do you see how good they are and in unlocking my sons phone it was a challenge... only due to the persistence and them asking the right questions did they get the job done. once they found there was a problem they responded very quickly and we had to e-mail several times back and forth to solve it (response in less than 15 minutes)... assume job
This is my first time using a service such as this and I am 100% satisfied. The website is very easy to use and understand. I received my lock code for my Samsung Note4. This service works! Compared to other companies who offer this type of service this company offers a lower price; however, value is not compromised because of it. The email which you get with your code has very clear instructions and offers solutions for possible situations you may run into. If I ever need this service again, I will be using them. Thank you CellUnlocker!
I researched a lot on line .
This was the only company that had a money back Guarantee if they could not unlock the phone.. No need for that the phone was unlocked on the first try and I am now using all features including the LTE on T-Mobile USA.
Tip for consumers: Make sure that your phone is on their list.Ask Fred about CellUnlocker.net
It really is my pleasure in writing a glowing review for Cellunlocker. After switching mobile companies when I inserted my new Sim card it would not work with the PUK code i was given. I point the finger of blame at two companies and neither would give me any help. My phone was working perfectly fine and I didn't want to have to spend more money on a new phone because of this. I did my research on the net and after receiving very positive reviews from other customers I decided to take a chance on using Cellunlocker. Wow! After going through a simple process I received my code and my phone came back to life within 15 minutes. I felt utter relief! I can't thank Cellunlocker enough. It's rare to receive truly outstanding service these days but I shall be telling all my friends and family about this company. So if your phones locked then don't hesitate and use Cellunlocker! A delighted customer! Thank you!!!!!!
It is a legit company, no scam. This is my second time unlocking a phone with them. Unlocked a HTC One V in April 2013 for 15$ and now unlocked a HTC ONE S for 10$ in February 2015. Don't know if the price changes or not based on the oldness of the model, but it's irrelevant.
One thing I didn't like the first time is that I waited a bit longer than the first time, 15 hours compared to 10 minutes. But that's just a detail. What matters is that I got it, the unlock code that is. Would give 5 stars for a more consistent service.
Tip for consumers: Just make sure you double check the IMEI you enter and the carrier the phone is being locked to.Ask Thai-Quan about CellUnlocker.net
I've had 2 phones unlocked through this site. In each case, everything went smoothly.
The codes were delivered promptly.
This is in contrast to 2 other sites that failed me. One failed to even reply despite a "24-hour guarantee" and another supposedly couldn't unlock my phone.
While Cellunlocker wasn't the least expensive site, they did the job, and that's all that matters!
Received unlock confirmation within 90 minutes of my order. Easy to follow instructions were provided to complete the process, which worked flawlessly on the first try. Thank you!
I used cellunlocker to unlock a brand new Samsung Note 4 and the process was quick, simple and well explained. I received the codes within 24 hours (I ordered them on a Sunday) and I had the phone unlocked within 2 minutes of receiving the message. I am very happy with the service and the follow-up, to make sure I was happy and check to see if I had any problems. I would heartily recommend cellunlocker.

Hi the overall service was really good and quicker than the advertised time . the advertised time was 5 -7 days but i got the unlock code on the 2nd day itself . it worked fine without any problems .
the staff were courteous . from security perspective they gave me a call to verify that i am the real owner of the account from which the unlock fees was debited . overall trustworthy service, excellent
Tip for consumers: yes go for itAsk sura about CellUnlocker.net
They did exactly what they said they were going to do ahead of the stated schedule and it worked perfectly. The instructions supplied with the unlock code were very helpful as well.
I am very happy with the outcome.

I watched a video about unlocking my phone which sent me to this site. I was a bit leary but decided to check it out anyway since I'd just bought a phone at a pawn shop and needed it unlocked. The video showed one price, but it ended up being more. Not sure if it was the type phone or maybe it was an older video (I believe it was from 2012) but I paid the fee and received the code within like 10 minutes and it worked perfectly! I'm now excited to know I've found a trusted site for my unlocking needs in the future! Gahh, that sounds dorky, doesn't it?!! Sorry bout that! But I doubt you could go wrong by going ahead and using them!
Easy to understand ordering process, order tracking, great prices and everything worked first time! Super happy with them.
I ordered unlock codes for two different phone models. I received both within a hour.
I was worried one of them would not work because the model number was one digit higher than the model CellUnlocker listed on it's site.
However, both codes worked without issue.
CellUnlocker's email provided clear instructions and guaranteed they will support purchases.
However, I feel CellUnlocker's website could be improved to be more clear in guiding the customer. Some navigation and instructions on the right & left side are extraneous, and may be making purchasing more confusing than helpful.
Tip for consumers: On current website as of Jan 28, 2014:
Once you've selected your phone model, focus on the info in the middle of the page. Scroll to the bottom for form to order.
I had a problems unlocking my iphone. However, one of the customer service representative did a really great job on helping me and explaining procedures how to do so. Already purchased two unlock codes and so far it was successful. Thank You Cellunlocker.
Write your review to help others learn abI placed my order on 13. January. Instead of five hours I got no information for more than two weeks.
According to their website they had some technical difficulties with Samsung devices. I found this OK since the unlock wasn't totally urgent.
Then now I got an e-mail that I've got refunded. Reason:
"Please check new pricing our apologies"
Which means that after having to wait two weeks they just cancel my order and I can reorder the code for almost double price...
Thank you CellUnlocker.net!out this online business
I was very impressed with this site afte qr having a look On the Web they answered
all of my questions straight away. They even managed to get me an unlock code were 2 other companies failed. They even contacted me to make sure the the code had worked this site Is well worth the money and would use them again.
Tip for consumers: You won't be disappointed good good fast serviceAsk Tracey about CellUnlocker.net
Worst page ever, waited for 2 weeks for my unlock code and and still didnt get it. After every 3 days they said its 3 more days till my order get unlocked, never happened.
At least refunding was fast, after that I ordered the unlock from another site for +3$ and I got my code in 15mins..
Dont waste your time with this $#*! and pay that little extra for a reliable service.

I didn't think there's another way to factory unlock my new Samsung Note 4 other than to wait for two years till my contract is finished. But then I foind cellunlocker thru google and decided to give it a try, since I had an overseas trip coming up jn a week. Besides, full refund won't hurt me anyways. Turns out they did send me a valid unlock code after a few days of my initial order and I was able to use my friends t-mobile Sim card after the phone took the unlock code. Boy I was happy cause I can bring my new phone with me when I get on the airplane tomorrow and not worry about syncing all my contents to my old phone and everything.
It took a few days longer than what they advertised but it was due to samsung' s system update. Cellunlocker did kept me up to date vis email communication through out the progress and promised to send me the code before my trip and which they did. So I'm happy with their service and will refer all my friends as well.
Took 3 working days to send me a code for my Sony Xperia S. The unlock code worked in the first attempt and am using this phone now without any issues. Great service.
First off, I am NOT a paid employee or someone who makes false claims (like seen on so many scam sites).
As with most sites that claim to unlock cellphones I was a bit wary on this one. After reading the mixed reviews on this site I wasn't sure what to expect.
However, my hesitations were unfounded. After entering my IMEI number for my iPhone 5s locked to Telus Mobility in Canada, I received back an "it's all good!" message and proceeded to make my payment. The site was right on the money - within five hours I had a message indicating my phone was unlocked". After following their explicit directions in the email I received a message on my iTunes application indicating this indeed was true - my phone was now unlocked.
So to answer your question - yes this service works, yes this service is legit and yes they send a few emails ensuring the quality of their services were acceptable. Would I recommend this company? Absolutely!
I spoke with a representative beforehand because there is a concern that it might not work if the phone was unlocked previously. It turned out that my phone, the T-Mobile HTC MyTouch 4G does not have an issue with this. I had a little difficulty using the online form, so the service rep handled it for me. The unlock code came in an hour. All went well. The representative was very helpful. Yes, I would recommend Cellunlocker.

Found Cellunlocker while searching for ways to unlock my new Samsung Note4 on youtube videos. It sounded like a reasonable company so Iooked them up and proceeded to purchase an unlocking code from them.. Prices were reasonable. After not receiving my code in the time mentioned, i proceeded to contact them through e-mail. They responded in a timely manner and told me they were having issues with their system. They told me that it might take a few more days and if i wanted a refund to let them know. I got my code a few days later and it worked perfectly. Will definitely used cellunlocker in the future if i need too.
I went to 3 different cell unlocking companies on the internet. All 3 searched their databases and came back with code not found. After hearing about cellunlocker on youtube from mobiletechreview, I decided to give it one more try. They processed my order and they emailed me an unlock code about an hour later. I put in the code and got my LG F60 unlocked on the first attempt. The other nice thing about the site is they are much cheaper than some of the other sites I went to.
I travel abroad frequently and need my cells to be unlocked for local use. This is the second time I have used Cellunlocker to unlock a Samsung phone (first the Galaxy S4 and now the Galaxy Note 4), and both times the phone was unlocked without a hitch. Fantastic communication. When their system was down over the busy holiday season, they promptly informed me of the situation and promised a quick response when the system was back up, which they delivered on. Great service, great price. I'll be back again and again with each new phone I get.
Amazing service. My phone had unlocking issues. Something to do with the Carrier unlock code wouldn't work so they had to get an unlock code direct from BlackBerry.
Tip for consumers: I first used FreeMyBlackBerry service and they weren't able to help me (at least I got a refund). CellUnlocker.net was able to unlock my phone properlyAsk Brian about CellUnlocker.net
Took a while for the unlock to work for my iPhone 6 due to supplier problems but none the less it worked! Customer service was friendly, helpful and very understanding! Would definitely recommend this website to anybody that asks where they would be able to unlock a phone!
Service is very bad i do not recommend if you have a galaxy note 3, already been two weeks and still no code! And theres no refunds WTF
Sonim XP 5560 BOLT 2 Unlocked!
Team was very helpful and helped me by email before even passing a command.
I needed to know if the phone was supported, they helped me make a test to confirm the case and then I did bought the code.
It just worked.
The process took less than a day for me.
Thanks and keep it up!

I wish they unlock my phone, instead they kept postponing and telling me to wait and I ended up staying 10 days abroad with no phone and no service at all.
At least they promised me a refund.
I've always used CellUnlocker if I end up buying a cheap locked. Never failed to please. Very prompt, gives detailed instructions clearly and very professional.
