    Default Is this weird?

    I unlocked my iPhone using Dev Team software.
    I am using an older AT&T pre-Cingular sim.
    In my phone SETTINGS I am able to choose between carriers - AT&T or T-Mobile - and both seem to work? What's happening?

    In some states in the US, both AT&T and T-Mobile have joined forces to compensate for lack of network infrastructure. Using bilateral agreements, they provide a joint effort service without any roaming fees. If you are truly can pick and choose operators, I assume that you are in one of these states? Just a guess.

    LA? That's a bit odd, unless, of course if ATT/T-Systems (DE Telecom) have come to an agreement that allows them to backup the other in the event that.... Sure that you sync to the opposing operator and are able to make calls? If so, that must be the case. Here in France, I can choose the competitor's network, but the iPhone complains about it and switches the phone to "no service" once I do so.

    im in the US and i can see both AT&T and Tmobile under the carrier section. if you jump on AT&T and your carrier is Tmobile, you MAY get charged for roaming.

    AT&T and T-Mobile did have an agreement, but they broke up a while back as far as I know..

    I AM able to sync up with T-Mobile and make calls. I only noticed because if I leave carrier selection to "automatic" I saw my carrir icon switching to T-Mobile at times. I now have it locked on AT&T (Cingular) because I'm afraid of roaming charges etc...
    But I do find it weird. I am not able to select carriers on my unlocked Nokia E61 with the same sim.
