Yeah.!
Why is it that none of these unlocking sites never have the Nokia Lumia 530 and Lumia 635 phones listed in there model drop down menu list?

I read somewhere on a forum that these sites will sell your IMEI numbers to people that's been band from the GSM carriers and clone suckers IMEI codes so they can get back onto the T-Mobile, AT&T and other nationally GSM carrier operators.
Your better to take a chance on eBay or Amizon buying a phone that's already unlocked if your going to travel over seas or to Hawaii...
For what you pay a Unlocking site that is a hit and miss chance you can take that same money and put it towards an unlocked phone from Amazon or eBay with the option to return the phone.
I mean really how many of these people that use these unlocking site even travel out of the US?

Jail breaking, Hard Reset and Unlocking are 3 different animals.
Jail breaking is for being able to download apps, games, Music, etc for free.

Hard Reset is when you've forgot your pass code / password or your phone is not working right from glitches, bad apps, bad configurations, etc and you want to put your phone back to factory like the day when it come out of the box new.
You will have to get all the updates again.
It's the same as if you did a full recovery on your PC to factory install from the original backup CD's.

I got the Nokia Lumia 530 from Wal*Mart for $29.16 + $2.05 Tax.
T-Mobile as the carrier and the plans they have are outrageous especially if your just an average Joe or Jane that doesn't have a phone up in their face 24/7.
No plans for low fixed income people on a robbing noodle budget.

It's all about data rates.
SMS (Short Message Service) and MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service)

Txting SMS should be free with any of their data plans.
A small fee for MMS txting.
$30 and up for their data plans from 100 mbz up to their maximum data plans without throttling.

I don't use T-Mobile or AT&T because I cant afford their ridiculous high cost plans with low data coverage.

TracPhone will start you off with some data coverage then after awhile will cut that out and if you pay by the minute and call their support about not being able to send photos.
They will lolly gag around using broken scripted foreign slang language with you on the phone and cause you to burn up all your minutes to pay for their support and you still don't get any data to use the MMS txting for images or able to browsing the internet.
If you ever call TracPhone support you better do it on a phone with WiFi or a land line because if you do it on the Pay By the Minute TracPhone you will burn up all your minutes with their support.
When you call TracPhone support the automated machine will tell you to press "1" for English so when they take your call after a long wait and then they will lolly gag around with you using broken scripted foreign slang language, "Tell the support person that you pressed '1" for English and not for the slang scripted broken language # 10."
They will then disable your SIM card if you do and tell you that you will need a new SIM card. Lol

Assurance and Safelink give free service and phones that have no camera so you cant use the MMS data with the free phone and plans for fixed income people.
Just calls and txting is all you can do on the free phones from Assurance and Safelink.
So with that said you can now see why the Data is the big money maker for the GMS carriers.

I use my phone on my home WiFi and live in the city where I have hundreds of hotspots that I can connect to.
Most will let you roam on their secure WiFi for a small fee or small favors or just as a friend.

I've read somewhere on the Internet that you cant send or receive photos or videos over WiFi with the Nokia Lumia Smartphon with Windows 8.1...
I had a problem doing it when I first got my phone and didn't know how to do it but now I can send and receive photos and videos over WiFi at home or from Hotspots around town.

Dear PJay,

Currently we are updating our unlocking services and we expect to resume the services after 2-3 weeks. To unlock your phone immediately, please contact the network customer care and ask them for an unlock code. If it's not urgent, I would recommend you visit the Unlock Your Phone page on our website after a month or so; we may be able to unlock your phone then. We will contact you as soon as our services are started.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
