    Default Blocked Network

    Ok i have a quick question...I tried to search for this in the forums but i didn't get an answer. I'm sorry if this is a dumb question or repeated. I am considering buying a turbo-sim (Gevey Sims to be exact). However i heard that the carrier can block you if you use turbo-sim. What does "blocking" mean. Does it mean it wont allow your simcard to work with the turbosim or does it mean it will block your actual sim card and i have to buy a new one? or do does it block your account with the carrier? If anyone knows any type of info on this topic please let me know (i'm using AT&T with a Canadian locked iphone). Whats the worst that can happen with my account? because if if they will block it in anyway i'm not going to buy it. please let me know and thanks for your time.

    Hello fellow Canadian!

    anyways, they CAN NOT block turbosim (silly, really)... NOTHING can happen, the turbosim itself only fakes a signal, nothing that is detectable and your network will think you are using any other 3G phone unless they look up your IMEI (unlikely, there are thousands of phones, why would they single yours out?)

    but Gevey sims are not very durable and after testing it for 2 weeks, it failed on me like the universal sim did.

    Trust me... i-smartphone sims, REPRESENT

    Thanks for the quick reply. I knew it was a silly question but i was afraid that the sim adapter could get me blocked by the carrier (i cant afford to lose the plan i'm on. Its a student plan i got a while ago and they dont offer it anymore) thanks
