Scam Jailbreaks and Unlocks

Jump to: navigation, search

This is an incomplete list of community-reported scam sites that pretend to distribute or sell jailbreaking and unlocking tools/services. (There are tons of other scam sites not listed here yet.)

If you see a site selling jailbreaking or unlocking software (or asking you to do a survey before downloading), it's a scam. Some legitimate forms of unlocking are not free - third-party IMEI unlocks and SIM interposer devices both cost money - but ultrasn0w is always free.

Please contribute to this list if you find a scam site. By listing them here, we can help people find good information when they search Google for more information about these sites. (If your site is listed here and you believe that's a mistake, you can register an account and remove it from the list.)

Make sure not to link to these pages, as all links will boost their Google ranking.
