Over the past few days I've searched for the cheapest and quickest method for unlocking my new (for me) Skyrocket. I certainly didn't want to pay $25-35 and I didn't want to wait hours or days for my phone to be unlocked.
But for each unlocking company or website that I saw positive reviews for, I would see just as many cautions to stay away from them. There just wasn't a consensus recommendation for a best unlocking solution.
After looking over all my options, I went to eBay and searched for the Cheap&Easy Skyrocket Permanent Unlock by USB. It offered an immediate unlock of my i727 Skyrocket and at $17 was one of the least expensive. After paying thru PayPal for the service, I received a confirmation email within minutes with instructions for installing the Samsung USB drivers and unlocking software.
After installing the software, I was only required to make a couple of keypad entries on the phone, then run the unlocking program. In far less time than it has taken to write all this, my Skyrocket was unlocked.
Now, I will say that this method might not be for everyone. I have been flashing custom ROMS on Android phones for a couple of years, so I'm comfortable with installing drivers, entering programming codes on phones, and running programs that modifies the innards of expensive Android phones. If you've ever flashed a custom ROM or recovery on your Android, this method of unlocking really is a no brainer.
Never flashed a custom ROM on your Android? If you've ever installed a new program on your computer or transferred music from your computer to your Android phone, you can unlock your Skyrocket!
I am very happy with my decision.
