What happens when I cancel my ATT account and restore the Iphone?
I was wondering what might happen to the restoration process after the ATT account associated with the SIM card that ships with the iPhone gets canceled.
I mean, does the Phone remains active? Does iTunes communicates with ATT all the time to check whether the phone is still active? Does it communicate only during the restoration process? Does it communicate at all? When?
Summing up: If I cancel my account now, will I still be able to restore the iPhone and have it activated (without ATT bindings of course)? Is my SIM card serial enough to do it or iTunes has to check with ATT first?
And if I use iTunes to restore my phone in another computer, will the activation work if the account associated with the SIM got canceled?
I'm asking this because I'm considering cancelling my prepaid account and I'd like to know the risks.
Any suggestions about it?
here we go!
the big question again
ask apple or att!
i did, they said we donīt know.
at the moment
if you do that, youīve got an iBrick.
if you wanna use it again you have to make a new plan...

When you cancel your contract or remove the "iPlan" what happens is the iphone will say "Invalid SIM Card"
I removed my iPlan because i rarely use my iPhone and use my WM6 device the majority of the time... I kept the iPlan so i can use the iPhone on those rainy days but i kept getting these annoying texts which were jiborish for the built in voicemail function of the iphone. Also i couldn't send MMS messages with the iPlan feature.
I just finished bypassing the activation so i can use my iPhone with any AT&T sim and would recommend doing that.. everythings working except youtube and the visual voicemail.
I have one further question.
What should I backup from my current phone's OS installation before canceling my account with ATT and restoring the OS so I can have full functionality?
