    Exclamation Warning! IPSF reseller now distributed free unlock - beware

    http://aussieiphoneunlock.com/

    Beware of beeing ripped of, they distribute a file belonging to this incident:

    http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/breaking/...ion-298473.php

    This software is using our unlock AND is not allowed to be distributed for commercial purpouse! Demand your money back from them and don't get yourself fooled with this. It's not released you pay someone for it!

    "We have teamed up with a new supplier to bring you the first release Software Unlock for your iPhone
    Download the application here - /* link to scam */"

    We are not alfianted with this site or person, it's a fake post.

    As it seems some of the IPSF reseller started a fraud campaign with our software and HaRRo (read article above). You can find a copy of a further email form another reseller below. If someone is selling you or giving you away our unlock instead, you got frauded! The license of the tool explict forbids sale.
    Demand your money back if you not recieved anything. The IPSF deals were made with making $ in mind, it's not our not anyone else fault it didn't last long or even went wrong. If the business went wrong and someone took a high risk out of interest in money it's not your fault. Still keep in mind a reseller does the deal for a nice venue of mathed up a few thousend US$.

    As selling the software is explict violating the anti commercial license terms we will talk back to the EFF to see what we can do about this. In the meantime try to get your funds back in the bank.

    Default also trash is doing that

    Sam,

    Also trash is doing that, here is the mail:

    To all our loyal customers.

    To clarify a few things.

    iPhoneSimFree has not provided me nor any other reseller any further licenses that we have all paid for. I have tried contacting them for the past 24 hours to ask where my licenses are. They sent me generic responses and only commented on the Free Unlock. I had been waiting on a number of unlocks to be released to me for the past day and they still have not done so.

    Please do not count this as i am giving up. I want to know what happened to the licenses i paid for. I have seen the software work and sent out to my early customers and cant understand why they have not sent any of the licenses out to their resellers.

    Today we made a deal with http://www.freeiphoneunlock.com

    Myself and http://aussieiphoneunlock.com/ have agreed to donate the money from the sales of the software to the Dev Team for their hard efforts in bringing us the new unlock. We will be recouping our money back spent and will be posting on our sites the guides for unlocking your iPhone.

    I am hoping at least iPhoneSimFree will release to me some of the licenses so those who are on List 2 please give it a few days and let me see what eventuates. Your order for this has been processed and paid for.

    Please support the community and those who have tried to help you from the beginning.

    Here is the Software Unlock for your iPhone
    Download the application here - http://www.freeiphoneunlock.com/rls/Unlock.app.zip

    What do you guys expect? Do you expect the normal users to use the difficult and troublesome version instead of a version with a GUI?

    Most people don't care if the "writer" of the GUI is an asshole. They just want a fast and easy solution. IPSF would not have managed to do the unlock if it weren't for the dev team, the dev team wouldn't have managed to find the unlock if it weren't for IPSF (atleast not as fast).

    Everybody steals and the best solution wins. At this stage, the GUI is the best solution (even if the troublesome one is much faster). Just release a GUI and everybody will be happy, even though if it is just as ugly as his version.

    Sam and company, Thanks for your effort. Hats off to you!!

    All the aussie resellers are nothing but thrash.
    I guess he had made a plan to cheat the costumers after your unlock came yesterday by sending it to costumers and robbing the money. I dont think it is IPSF fault. Both the aussie sellers were been removed from the resellers list.
    Please dont encourage such guys in this forum.

    I guess the free donations to your team will be surpass IPSF earnings. Please put a link for donations in this forum.

    Keep your good work for the community.

    Gussy and Trash are a couple of (bad) opportunists who took a bad risk. They chose to deal with people (IPSF) with whom they had little interaction with and, as it seems, no legally binding re-seller agreement with.

    Honestly, if you take that sort of blind risk in the pursuit to make a few buck then you're bound to get screwed at some point and you deserve everything you've got coming to you.

    I am ashamed to say that in the frenzy to get my phone unlocked I signed up with Trash. THis afternoon he managed to get my IMEI "activated" on the IPSF server. I am finally back at home after a long days work and I have 2 methods at my disposal to unlock my shiney new iPhone: IPSM's or HaRRo's rip-off. I have no intention on using either.

    I think I'll just relax a bit and wait for Erica to release her GUI so that I can comfortably unlock my iPhone from install.app. I feel more confident using Dev Team blessed "products".

    This being said - do we know roughly when the Erica GUI app will be coming? :-)

    Please note, he stole a GUI pre release tester or erica, asked someone to modify it for him, cause he was unable to. He told the person he is dev team member and all would be ok. Than released the app and fished off doantions for dev team all day. How you call this?

    Sorry the methoso usd is in works since the weekend, the code existed and is diffrent from the IPSF method in many many ways.

    No not everyone steals. Please remind who actually released nearly all the info/researchwork whcih is resulting in the nice stuff you have around today. Without Jailbreak and toolchain you would proberly still live in brick mode advanced. The internet has a fast advancing time frame as it seems as what was there first gets easy forgotten. We don't ask for much but at least keep the reality in facts before posting such a stuff around here.

    I already opened a claim with PayPal against Trash. I was OK with him delivering the IPSF software even though a free option was out, I took that risk. But now, I won't get my IPSF software and he is offering the free option in return.

    F*ck that, I wan't my money back. Either that, or give me my 2 licenses from IPSF.

    Everyone in the 2nd batch of licenses from Trash's debacle of an operation, demand your money back and dispute the sale with PayPal. He broke the terms of sale the minute he sent out that e-mail saying he was canceling the deal with IPSF and was going to still charge you for the free unlock. He made a mistake there, otherwise I wouldn't have disputed.

    He un-broke the terms later by sending out confirmation of the licenses, but there are no un-do's in a transaction like this. Think about what a f***d up business world it would be if there were.

    I don't like it ofc, but I don't care as long as the application is fine.

    Most people don't care if the "writer" of the GUI is an asshole. They just want a fast and easy solution.
    He released stolen not even beta code.
    I know. That's why I used quotes around "writer". Anyway, I don't care whatever stage the software is or who the author really was, as long as it works without problems.
