    Default [Off Topic] Funny Story about T-Mobile and AT&T

    Just wanted to share a funny story with everyone about something that happened to me while traveling through New Mexico yesterday.

    I have a 1.1.2 OTB with a Steathsim that I use on T-Mobile here in the U.S. After waiting weeks for an unlock I purchased the Stealthsim because I had a T-Mobile Blackberry 8700 and refused to switch to AT&T as I have over a year left on my T-Mobile contract...on to the funny thing....

    As I passed through New Mexico I lost service completely. My buddy I was riding with said his Blackberry T-Mobile had switched to AT&T on roaming. I checked my phone and found that my settings for carrier were not set to auto so I changed it. Within seconds my iPhone switched to AT&T.

    I freaked out at first, thinking I could never use AT&T as I was using a Stealthsim on T-Mobile. It was very surreal to see the AT&T logo on my phone. I was actually worried that when I got back into a T-Mobile network that phone would not switch back....I'm not really sure why I thought that...but it did switch back in the next town.

    After so much effort to make it work on T-Mobile, I find it funny that I was able to use AT&T on a hacked iPhone. And incase you're wondering, I did make a few calls to see if it really worked, and it did.

    Here's to you AT&T!!!!!!!!

    Yep that's what happens when your roaming and your carrier doesn't have service there, it switches to another one. Whenever I'm in europe, my phone switches to a different service, but I bought a vodaphone sim card so I don't have to pay international roaming charges.

    Back some months ago when I was in Jersey, I got my iPhone and discovered I could not soft unlock it, so I went and got a TurboSIM. Instantly my iPhone registered on AT&T network.

    So you can't, no matter what you do, to change from AT&T if you are using an AT&T "SIM".

    Happens the same if I try to select a different carrier when I am under coverage of my carrier. I simply can't. At least, not on iPhone.
