Years ago I decided to consolidate my domain names into one account at one registrar to simplify things. I choose enom because at the time they were the only registrar that had dynamic DNS for free.
I've recently purchased 2 .com domains from 2 separate people, and both names were registered at GoDaddy. I've gone through the process like normal: I ask them to remove the registrar lock and then I initiate the transfer. A few days after they approve the transfers, I get notices that GoDaddy refused the transfers.
Why are they refusing the transfers? The sellers of these domains are clueless... I'm about ready to demand a refund but I thought I'd ask here for advice first. I really don't want to keep those domains at GD, what do they need to do to let these names go?
I've never had a problem with moving domains away from Go Daddy, the hardest part is finding your way through their muddled control panel to remove the registrar lock. You should get email confirmation as the admin contact once the lock is removed then your transfer will go through. Just try to unlock again.
I assume that these domains are not brand new purchases, transfers are usually restricted in the first 60 days.

Crap, this sounds like I'm going to have to create an account there to put the names in until the 60 days pass. Both enon and GD have less-than-intuitive interfaces, but I have gotten used to enom... I really don't want to have to learn GD's again.
I think eNom's interface is significantly easier and faster than GoDaddy's. But that's just personal opinion. If you change ANY registrant details at GoDaddy (like in a push from 1 account to another), you invoke GoDaddy's internal 60-hold policy. You can't transfer away for 60-days.
