The title says it all. It’s one of the biggest concerns you have when buying a phone unlock on the web.
You’ve read several stories of how some webmasters have scammed people for their money without providing an unlock solution, or providing an illicit unlock code that bricks their device instead of unlocking it.
But don’t let these few unfortunate instances get you down. Unlocking phone sites can be trustworthy – you just need to know which ones to trust.
The following are some of the keys you should look for in the website. A site having one or a multitude of these key features are usually safe to consider:
PayPal as a Payment Option
PayPal is the safest to make sure that the site you are buying from is indeed legit. You can’t trust unlocking providers who are just asking for credit cards. There have been a variety of credit card scams during the last few years.
PayPal also makes it possible to give in a case when you have paid for the service but you do not receive any service from the website. You just need to attach the screenshot of payment, no service receiving and the transaction details to claim a refund.
The unlocking websites that publish regular content apart from serving service pages are likely to be the most pages. The content should enlighten people what is unlocking, the types of phones, basebands and firmwares that can be unlocked and things like that.
Red flags are those websites that just open up with a few service pages and do not provide any other information. You are recommended to stay away from such websites. Because phone numbers and email addresses and real addresses can be easily listed as wrong. To stay on the safest side, choose a website that does really know about unlocking and does not hesitate to provide free information to its customers.
Customer Service and refund Policy
Do not forget that customer service is pretty important; choose a website that provides a good customer service, preferably have someone available in live chat to answer your questions and queries. A site that does not have a customer service option may just run away with your money.
You should also look for a refund policy because there are many sites that do not list refund policies and leave you in no land to ask for a refund. A site that is trustworthy will always list a transparent refund policy for its customers.
