With iPhone 5 sales there has been a corresponding increase in the number of consumers who are seeking an unlock for the iPhone 5/5s/5c.

Unlocking an iPhone has become big business especially with online companies as most of the time the actual device does not need to be handed over physically for the process to be completed. However, a prominent online unlocking company iUnlock Pro have warned consumers of various scams that are in operation.

These scam artists target those who are wondering how to unlock the iPhone 5 and usually their process and website seems very legit. However the unlock itself doesn’t actually work nor do they offer a customer service option – rather the software is bogus and is only designed to appear as though it is unlocking the iPhone.

“We have noticed a sharp rise in the number of scammers who are targeting gullible consumer in the past year,” said iUnlock Pro. “The fact is that these fake iPhone unlocking companies can be difficult to spot however there are some tell-tale signs that can help you to avoid being scammed.”

The company insists that any unlocking service that doesn’t offer a working customer service email or phone number should be disregarded completely. Also any unlocking company that insist you pay for the unlock out with major payment methods such as credit card or PayPal should be avoided given the decrease in protection that you as the consumer will have.

iUnlock Pro have been warning consumers about these scams for months now and the well-known iPhone 5 unlocking service went onto say that: “we know it is difficult for those who are new to the concept of unlocking to know what is legit and what isn’t. The fact is that websites that sell you software are highly unlikely to be genuine and on the off chance that it might be using this kind of software will probably cause other issues such as privacy and data breaches.”

Unlocking an iPhone 5 has propelled in popularity as people are quickly finding out that the high data charges and costs associated with the network that they purchased the iPhone with can be avoided. Unlocking can open up a lot of potential for customers to save money elsewhere and also use their iPhone 5 in a different country if need be.

While there are various scams operating online the fact is that companies such as iUnlock Pro are trying to distinguish themselves from the scam artists and instead offer a legit service for consumers who just want some freedom with their iPhone.
