    This stuff is pissing me off. Honestly, what good is providing that site? Posting unlocking links shouldn't be allowed here, most of the time it will just hardlock their phones.
    omg, i was just trying to help, and as that site worked for me, why not try and help someone else?

    sheesh.

    1) It's an N70, unlocking it remotely (like that) would be almost impossible for that site.
    2) It's often illegal.
    3) It will get people to attempt to do it and end up hardlocking their phones.

    No, unlocking (ie being able to use other network's sim cards) is never illegal. However, changing an IMEI number is.

    No, unlocking can be illegal, believe me.

    Some people severely lack brainpower. Most phones are perfectly legal to unlock, some are not. It depends on a number of things. I unlock phones directly/remotely all the time.

    Blocked phones work perfectly well in other countries, so just sell it to some Americans on ebay. They will usually just not work in the UK.

    I still recommend the OP contacts the eBay seller and demands money back or they will report them to eBay and leave neg feedback (of course, once you get the money back, you still only need to leave neutral feedback )
