We operate a 3 stage unlocking process. The Stage 1 Checkmend is where we run a check to ensure that the phone is not reported lost, stolen, blocked or barred. We do this by checking your IMEI number.
In a small number of instances your unlock may run over the guideline times stated on the product pages. This can happen but it's nothing to worry about. Remember, if we can't unlock you we will provide you with a full refund.
If you still have an outstanding warranty and want to use our iPhone IMEI factory unlock service do not be concerned. In no way will your apple warranty be invalidated. We don’t touch your phone in any way and our procedure will never invalidate your warranty.
We get asked this a lot and the short answer is no. The unlock procedure is conducted digitally, we never touch your phone. All we need from you is your IMEI number.
Yes we can. It doesn't actually make any difference where your iPhone is. As long as you purchase the correct unlock for your model and network and provide the correct IMEI number - we can unlock you.
We can only change your order if you contact us within the first 2 hours of making your purchase. Once submitted to the database the nature of the unlocking process means we cannot alter the order or provide a refund. We have to pay each time we add an IMEI into the global unlocking database.
All our IMEI factory unlocks are permanent. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the service we provide please contact us
and we'll do everything we can to resolve your issues.
You can update and use your iPhone like normal and it will always stay unlocked…forever!

Why was Netpal™ formed?
Netpal™ was set up by Mark Griffin after having a bad experience trying to unlock an iPhone, Mark went from unlock website to unlock website looking for a trusted supplier. After choosing a company Mark realised that the price he initially paid was not the final price & he had to pay more to finish the unlock.
On realising it was a scam Mark went to another website who assured him they would get him unlocked. This again turned out to be a scam. After doing some investigation it became clear that the unlock industry was rife with scam software and websites that just don't deliver.

The NetPal™ Money Back Guarantee.
NetPal™ guarantee to unlock your phone or your money back. It’s that simple.
Sometimes your unlock may fail. For example, if you pay for an unlock service that only has an 80% chance of successful completion your unlock may fail. In that instance we will provide you with a full refund.
We will also refund you if we tell you that you're unlocked but the unlock isn't working. Generally, if this happens we will conduct a GSX check or unlock code check which can take up to 48 hours to complete.
If the results of the check show you are not unlocked, we will provide you with a full refund or offer to re-submit your IMEI to an alternative unlock server.
Where we might charge you.
Sometimes a blocked or barred imei number is submitted that doesn’t get picked up by our Checkmend check. Additionally you may choose the wrong network or phone model. If for any reason your unlock fails because the IMEI number is blocked or barred or you've purchased the wrong unlock for your phone model or network we may charge you a fee of £4.50.
This is to cover the expense of administering and processing your failed unlock. Please ensure your IMEI is not from a phone reported stolen or possibly barred.
Where we cannot offer you a refund.
It's important you understand that we do not unlock your phone ourselves. All unlocks are processed by a global unlock server. We have to pay to enter your IMEI into the global unlock server and only make a few pounds for each customer we find.
It's because of this we cannot offer you a refund before your IMEI is fully processed by the unlock server. If your unlock fails we automatically refund you.
Additionally, you may believe you are not unlocked when our GSX check indicates that you are. This may be due to you not following the final steps to complete your unlock. If this happens we will provide full support until the issue is resolved.
If you have purchased an unlock code in some instances we may ask you to provide video evidence that the unlock code does not work. This is because we will be unable to approach our supplier for a refund until they can see that the unlock code does not work.
