Nice price. Unlocking Boost/Virgin/Sprint Prepaid phones is a pain in the ass though.

Unless something has changed it was a piece of cake to unlock the iPhone SE. I paid $30 on eBay, waited 3 days and had an unlocked phone. How is that hard?
$80 now and no guarantee 2 weeks later

They have jacked up the price to $75 now, claiming server issues and will take at least 10 days. I still have one iphone 6 I want to unlock but I refuse to unlock it at this price. $50, maybe. $75, hell no! The problem is that Boost Mobile put a claim on the phone as "Unpaid Bill", which requires premium unlock. Otherwise, it would only be $35 to unlock a clean phone that doesn't have "unpaid bill" or is "blacklisted".

That hard? What are the using to keep it locked down? I would think the mod. community would have a crack method within a week of release?

Mine said unpaid bill and it was only $30 in April. That sucks they've jacked up the price.

It was $35 since two months ago. I unlocked 4 phones at that price. It even went down to $25 for two weeks at one point and then went to $75 and stay there currently for the last month and a half. I'm hoping it will go down eventually. Need to unlock an iphone for a family member overseas when I go visit them at the end of the year.
