    Default It works.

    iNdependence activation works just fine and the 1.2.1a version.
    AT&T and Cingular SIMs work just fine, you don't have to unlock the phone, just activate it.

    If you have a AT&T account you will, after iNdependance activation, notice that your account's device is an iPhone. I presume AT&T picks that info from the "air" ... but they also do something else ... which is drop any "discounts" your account may otherwise have.

    Thanks, I was going crazy, after my original answer there were all these posts saying that you needed to unlock anyways... well, at least merlin agrees with me. I have an old ATT (Cingular SIM) that I could use without a problem without unlocking. It is true about Edge though, you can't just change settings as I said before, that's on an unlocked phone on a different network (there's an application around called deEdge though, maybe that works).

    SInce you are on a PC then you need winstaller to jailbreak the phone then run PACAY and you will be activated, just insert yout at&t sim card and enjoy without Edge (just remember to disable it).
    do a search in the forum for both programs and you should be done in 5 minutes flat

    I think they see that you are using an iphone due to the fact that you connect to edge. see one thing no one realizes is that when you are connected to edge then you probably connect to your emails and that is done through apple servers. remember in the past you couldnt get on youtube and yahoo since you needed valid files, I think those files when used they go through specific servers and all at&t has to do is set it up so if you log on to an iphone server through their edge network it automatically upgrades your account to an iphone account. come to think of it Apple could block all non-at&t ip address from accessing their youtube and yahoo pushmail servers ... or atleast block t-mobile in the US... this would make it bothersome ... but some people are willing to live without them

    Unhappy Phone Identification [ existing AT&T customers ]

    Some people stipulate it's based on IMEI number. Carriers must have the ability to shut off a particular phone from the network in case it is reported stolen, so I bet they know this outside of EDGE.

    I have an AT&T data plan, however, I don't use any services offered by them other then data. Meaning I connect to my own IMAP server (not one running on Yahoo etc).

    I somehow doubt its sniffed off edge [ the phone type ] simply because most protocols do not have any such information in it - if memory serves me correctly. IMAP does not, HTTP does but that information you take with a grain of salt anyway :-)

    We had first stipulated that perhaps some EDGE is request is made to the carrier to pass this information ...

    My other phone is a Sony Ericsson K790a which is not sold by the at&t in the US. That phone shows up as "Other device" in the at&t account page. They just refer to it as an "unsupported phone".
