    Question Activation as Prepaid still working?

    Hi Folks,

    I'm geting my Iphone in a couple of days and I'd like to know if there are any problems with activating it using the prepaid option. What would be the best technique to do so? Are there any problem that I should be aware about?

    More specifically, I'd like to know if the activation using "999999999" as social security number (SSN) so the system would bring the prepaid option is still working.

    Has anyone done it recently?


    Thanks,

    You just need to use Jail break and you will be able to get you pre-paid going . I am using a Go card and i am able to make call and received:p SMS without problem

    Thank you guys for the feedback.

    The thing about activating it through ATT is that I'd have youtube working for sure.

    Has anyone activated the iphone recently using the 99999999 SSN recently?

    Is it safe to try to use it anyway? How can I spot that I was redirected to the gophone activation and not to the contract activation?


    Another question I have. Even though I activate the iphone through ATT, if I jailbreak y iphone, would that interfer with the youtube app? Would it stop working because of the jailbreak?

    Thanks.

    Pablo, when i bought my iPhone two weeks ago the 999 trick was no longer working at all... if you tried to go through w/ it you just end up in the "call ATT for further service" pit, i had to actually come up w/ a valid SS # that did indeed have bad credit associated w/ it..

    Based in the UK, I used 999 to get a pre-pay on the 30th of July. Also had to use a US address (chosen at random) but AT&T were happy to take my UK credit card. Of course its totally useless as a phone as the pre-pay wont roam here in England, but it activated the iPhone to give me Wifi, iPod, Contacts and Diary.

    Thanks everybody for the info.

    It seems that iti might work after all.

    The thing I'd like to know is if after trying to use the SSN trick do I have to call ATT or is there any way back to the original state?

    I mean, every attempt is gonna make me call ATT or is there any way to restart everything and try again?

    The other thing is about youtube. Jailbrake alone causes it to stop working, even if I've activated the phone through the prepaid option?

    Thanks a lot.

    youtube should not be a problem once you have activated legitimately w/ the GoPhone option... after activating my iPhone w/ GoPhone i have jailbreaked the phone many times to mod icons and such, and youTube has always continued to function properly for what its worth..

    DO NOT use the GoPhone option if you never intend to travel to the US. The reason? You pay around 50 USD per month for two years for this GoPhone contract, this is lost money since international roaming is NOT possible with this contract. There is however one advantage: rollover. Meaning: if you don't make calls in a month, these unused calls are credited to the next month and this works for 6 months. Being in the US twice a year, the GoPhone contract isn't a big deal for me since I can use the GoPhone SIM in the US during my stays there.

    If you never travel to the US, the GoPhone option is a very expensive way to officially activate the iPhone and have YouTube enabled. Not really worth it because as soon as the unlock is available, the Dev Team may also take care of the YouTube problem.
