I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.
I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly

What is the model of your phone?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Waste of time and money, in waiting for your response I have managed to unlock the phone myself saving all the data, and I am no expert. I will not be giving a good review for this site and have already cancelled my subscription a waste of £5

Actually, we didn't even start working on this. I just asked the model number of the phone, so I could give you the correct instructions but didn't get any response from you. Anyway, I'm glad you sorted it out. Have a good day,
