    Default Could someone try this please? (requires AT&T)

    Hi,

    Could someone try this exactly please for me:

    1. Take sim card which has been legitimately activated with AT&T that is currently running the AT&T service under contract
    2. Insert sim card into DVD Jon activated iPhone
    3. Post results

    I've seen plenty of people who've tried their non-AT&T sims in AT&T activated iPhones, but none so far who've done it like this.

    This will establish the sole existence of a sim lock.

    So if someone could try this it would help out heaps. (Yes I'm going to try a clone and modify).

    -Adam

    This would be extremely useful for some of us that live in Puerto Rico where ATT offers service but is not supporting the iPhone at this time. Many of us have ATT activated sim cards but are being forced to activate our iPhones with new phone numbers that have mainland (non 787) area codes.

    It won't associate.

    What I've seen so far makes me think that they blacklist all the iPhone IMEIs (like the stolen handset DB), then unblock them as you sign up for iPhone service.

    This does not work, I have an existing ATT simcard (not activated by iTunes) from a year ago which is currently in my working phone that I use, I activated the iPhone using DVDjon method and put that simcard in and it does not work, it just says invalid SIM.

    Could it be that a newer sim card is needed? Was the sim rejected as soon as you put it in or after it attempted to connect to the ATT network. Iím just wondering it the phone rejected the card or the network rejected the card.

    that's an interesting idea, good thinking. it does seem entirely plausible.

    no, you didn't understand what i was asking. i'm not asking if people have tried putting in an old at&t card, i'm asking for someone to put an iphone activated at&t card with a current contract into another iphone - one that is activated using the dvd jon method.

    of course it says invalid sim if you just stick in an old at&t card. sim lock is what i'm trying to establish, and just any old at&t sim card of course isn't going to be the right card for the iphone.

    Better yet. Can someone who activated the Iphone via prepaid pick your plan call ATT and ask if they can change to Pay as you go.

    Make sure not to tell them that you have an Iphone. If this goes thru, it will establish that the IPhone's IMEI looks to them the same as any of their other phones.

    I asked about this in the store when I picked up mine and was told it would be easy to switch from prepaid to postpaid, if I paid the deposit of course. Who knows if that's in fact accurate, though..

    I had an activation issue on mine, and had to go to the AT&T store. The clerk had to call a number and was told to put another working SIM in my iPhone to test something, so she used the SIM from a demo phone. When nothing worked, I heard he respond "no, it is an older one".
    She then pulled another new SIM (it is blue and says 3G on it) from a smartphone (I think it was a 8125), and my iPhone worked fine.

    So it appears that at the minimum, you must have a newer '3G' SIM from AT&T to get the phone on the network.
