    Default Vibrate no longer works on my unlocked phone. Can I return it?????

    Is there anyway for me to return this phone. It was unlocked with anysim. I am on 1.1 ans have run through all of the virginizer stuff.

    I know they would take it back if it were a locked phone.


    Help!!!

    you should be able to take it back, as long as you virginized back to original state, only problem is you most likely don't have an at&t account right? you could try saying you got it as a gift for your birthday i guess...

    Thats my problem (ATT). How do I work around that. My father in law has ATT. Can I just reference his account/number when they ask. Or does that number have to somehow be associated with having used an iphone on ATT network.

    it's not entirely clear what the apple people can see (anyone knowing otherwise feel free to inform) but what can be done is this:

    either go to the AT&T website or just google "pay and go" and set up an account using the IMEI of the iphone and the ICCID of the sim card that came with it. it will ask for an address (which doesnt even need to be real, got my $100 rebate using the apple store in buffalo's zip code lol)
    at some point you will be asked to enter the number that you got with the activation package that came with the phone (which you obviously do not have) but conviently there is a button to skip that step! so after all this it will pop up giving you the phone number and you are good. the account balance is $0 and its ok to leave it like that.

    what this will not do (or i dont think it will do) is activate the phone, so i could run one of the relockers that are in installer and manually delete what ever you can find that shouldnt be there, ending with the installer program. and if you want to be really cautious rejail the device (i dont remember how but you should be able to search that on the forum, its super easy just a comand in ipuck)

    So If I get this right..........I can set up a pay as I go account without ever actually putting minutes. Then I will have the ATT phone number. Is that correct

    I went to the Go phone section of the site, and was not able to find a section where I can get a plan started without actually purchasing a plan or buying a phone. Do I just start with choosing a plan, but not ever actually pay for one
