Permanent Unlock “CutYourSim” Discontinues Service

Just last week, we wrote an article on everything you need to know about unlocking your iPhone using IMEI. Barely 2 weeks after it was introduced, the service provided by CutYourSIM has been suspended indefinitely as reported on CultofMac’s website. There were some speculations that Apple may behind it.

Those who managed to get the unlock are very lucky but the others who have paid and still waiting for the unlock, are now stuck and may be having trouble getting back their refunds; especially those who paid using Google Checkout as CutYourSim’s merchant account was closed due to “multiple recent refunds.”
A representative from CutYourSIM told CultofMac:
Unfortunately, we were not able to complete the rest of the unlocks waiting in our queue due to our suppliers being unable to offer the service anymore. Our suppliers have told us that there is a possibility that the service may return, but they do not know when, so we have decided to start processing refunds for any orders that we were not able to complete.
We believe Apple takes this matter very seriously and probably some insiders at Cupertino are now in hot soup over this. Well, that’s just our guess. 
CutYourSIM had posted FAQs on their website on refund procedures etc.
