Who Ruined The AT&T iPhone Unlocking Market?


By ruined, I mean: Who started to drop the price so ridiculously low only to make a penny per imei?

Now the average price is $30-$50 for bulk.

A few months ago suppliers and resellers were charging upwards of $50-$80 for bulk and $100+(still are) for individual sales.

Who's to blame? Let's get the market back up where it needs to be so we can ALL PROFIT BIG as before!

I'm not referring to small sellers who only do >20 orders per day but are still charging $60+ to people who don't understand the market.

RISE UP SELLERS AND RESELLERS! ENOUGH WITH THE CHEAP PRICES! LET'S GET THIS BACK WHERE IT NEEDS TO BE!

ATTENTION. DO NOT SUBMIT ANY MORE AT&T ! unless u can accept the terms and conditions of unlock. We will clear the remaining ones. BUT AT/T policy is if customer doesnt pay bill or they find out phone is / was stolen or still under contract they have the right to RE-LOCK the phones. This has now happened to a number of imeis which we unlocked. What this mean is ANY ATT (unless clean off contract fully finished code 52) that it can be relocked any time by ATT. This is not in our hands and therefore cannot be held liable for it. Therefore if you submit AT/T iphone and you get it marked "unlocked" once phone is UNLOCKED we are not accountable or responsible if phone is relocked... at ANY time. If you dont accept those terms and conditions then DO NOT SUBMIT .. Thank you and sorry for this terrible news. . as we just found out now.

Also, to be on topic, the people who ruined the iPhone unlocking market are the idiots who are putting low prices on a popular auction site. Here's what I saw happen...

For a while, if you did bulk, you could get AT&T iPhone unlocks for $50. Then along came one supplier who decided to start offering them on that auction site for $80. Soon after, all the prices started dropping. Then they dropped their price to $60. Then the prices started dropping again, then an even bigger supplier listed for $50. Now, you can get them done on that auction site for $45 for 12 hour service while these SAME suppliers sell to their re-sellers for $50.

What I think is that it's a purge. Lots of new people entered the businesses when this got popular and in order to protect themselves, they are purging all the small scale resellers. That's just my theory but I'm pretty sure I'm right.
