    Also, I made a short list (the hard way) of some more obvious ones at:

    http://dontfallforiphonescams.googlepages.com

    The bunch of illegitimate resellers is a little old, but I'm sure of them. Also, if anyone wants to keep the list updated I'll give the GooglePages login to a reputable member here.

    The sites that are always asking for donations and never produce anything should be listed here too.

    Canadians/// beware of this dude/// I bought a SIM from him cause he said he was in Canada and I didn't want to pay customs or have a long shipping time.

    hxxp://turbosimiphone.com/

    who is this guy on ebay

    hxxp://myworld.ebay.com/iphonesim

    says he is in Montreal... thats where I ordered my SIM... but they are not in Canada ... it was shipped from China and took 3 damn weeks when he said it would take 3 days...

    Sorry to bash on here, but waiting that long was hell, and I don't want others to go through it... plus until I formed a legit complaint on pay pal he would not answer my emails.

    Thanks for the tip off.

    "This is the newest Sim Adapter used to Unlock Iphone software version 1.1.3 "

    Is this be possible?

    This site is claiming that they can unlock 1.1.3 otb. (Another deceptive company. I don't mind paying for someone to write a manual based on free stuff, but to trick people into buying is just rediculous. I have no complaint for this company who replies my email quick. But I put this notice here so he can change his advertisement practice or I think we should boycott his from doing this and get all the new guys into trouble.)

    "Our Unlock Guide works with Firmware versions: V1.1.1 / V1.1.2 / V1.1.3 - whether they are fresh out of the box, or jailbroken already. This is a software only unlock - no need to crack open your iPhone."

    "Will it work with the V1.1.3 Update..?
    Yes, our Unlock Guide works with V1.1.1 / 1.1.2 / 1.1.3 Firmware, whether your iPhone is fresh out of the box, or has already been jailbroken."

    You think it's true?

    My experience is that this company use deceptive ad to get people to buy the unlock guide which is available here. And should be put in scam list.

    I bought an guide from this company which advertised they can unlock 1.1.2 otb about 1 month ago. But the guide provided as us to downgrade to 1.0.2. However, I have the 4.6 and 1.1.2 otb. So obviously it can't unlock and only jailbreak. Now he is asking me to pay for a new guide that will unlock V1.1.3 (see quote above" I am pretty sure if I bought this guide for use with V1.1.3 otb I will be stuck as of today. Then, few month later if the true 1.1.3 otb unlock is out. He will ask you to pay again.

    Basically he provided 2 statements above. then will tell you that you did not read it closely because the 2nd one says it's for V1.1.3 update from previous firmware.

    It's deceptive ad that it draws people into buying and then you are stuck and force to pay more money later for a newer guide which may or may not work.

    I asked for a refund and no response afterward. (I have email from this company if any one is interested to see, let me know.)

    He wants me to pay for this guide and said that he won't show me how to jailbreak 1.1.2V otb 4.6BL because it's too much trouble for him. Then, why am I paying him for this? And should I pay more?

    Watch out guys out there for this. At least as of today I have not seen the Dev Team released any 1.1.3 otb unlock yet. And this guy is claiming he can to get money?

    I almost forgot to thank the dev team and this forum hackint0sh. Without this, I would have been in trouble stuck for solutions.

    hxxp://www.iphoneunlocklive.com/ anyone tested this?

    they claim to do the following on their page:

    Note: If you have an iPhone out-of-the-box running Firmware 1.1.2 (i.e new iPhones bought in the UK) then our software will currently do the following for you:

    - unlock all functions of the iPhone
    - allow you to use your iPhone with any O2 SIM, including pay-as-you-go
