iPhoneimei.net iCloud Removal Review – Scam or Real?

Way back in August 2016 I bought an iPhone off Craigslist off someone and was totally scammed. The seller must have found it in a club or something, because it was locked to someone else’s iCloud account and it was impossible to get access to the device, despite trying every sim card and getting signal, I could not get past the screen asking for the owners email address and password. I tried to get in touch with the seller but they were totally non-responsive (what a surprise!) – before purchase they had answered all my questions about the phone, the model number and the amount of ram etc, now they just ignored my emails, blocked me on whatsapp and even the landline number they had given was out of service. This obviously was never their device to begin with and they had made a quick buck out of my naivety.

iCloud removal service

Find My iPhone is ON

First of all, I called Apple to remove the iCloud lock. NO LUCK. They were simply not interested. They wanted to see an original invoice or proof of purchase, my screen-shotted WhatsApp conversation with the seller was not enough! (I wasn’t surprised in all honesty). They felt sorry for me admittedly in the store but you know, they told me it was a lesson learned. Be wary when buying second-hand goods off the net.

Undeterred, I turned to Google. You know, Google is Your Friend! I searched for iCloud Unlock Review and time and again iPhoneimei.net came out with positive comments (and a few negatives, we’ll get to that later).

Anyway, I decided to bite the bullet. I bought the service and 2 days later I received kind of what I was expecting – your iPhone was rejected for being lost and stolen. So my first thought was that by now I had been scammed twice. I was tempted to write a bad review but there was a link for “Premium” service which was for iPhones in situations like mine (lost mode) so I paid the extra 40 bucks as by this point I was 200 bucks down on the phone, and 40 bucks down on the icloud unlock. Surely I couldn’t be a victim of a scam again??

Within 24 hours (as promised!) they came back to me to say that the iCloud account had been removed from the device. Sure enough, I turned it off and then back on again and lo and behold – it now asked me to begin the setup process!! I was over the moon. I soon forgot about that craigslist b*stard, and I’m happy blogging this away on my new (second hand) iPhone 7.

    Hi there, Hope you are doing great. First of all i am glad that your iCloud lock was removed. I have a small problem, i was scammed when i bought an iPhone off ebay. I tried iPhoneimei.net but they said my device is lost/stolen. I have to wait for premium service. It would be really helpful if you please send me the link to that premium service. I would really appreciate that.
    Thanks,
