    Default Your carrier's data on an AT&T SIM

    Hi guys,
    I can't find the old thread concerning writing your carrier's SIM data on an AT&T, so I made a new one.

    I just spoke to one of my tech buddies at Kall Telecom. He said that you CAN write your carrier's data onto an AT&T SIM - and it will work in an iPhone.

    However you do need to break the encryption on the card (which shouldn't be a biggie) and it is ILLEGAL - so I'm forgetting that one.

    Another thing, when you insert your AT&T SIM with your carrier's IMSI and whatever data is on it - it will only work with YOUR carrier (offcourse). But it's not like it locks your phone or anything.

    why dont you ask your tech buddies at Kall Telecom to do the copying and post us the result? Would be better to have some more proof about sim cloning (with alterations of course) so that all iphone owners would have a temp hope until real unlocking solution comes out?

    Since we're taking over a SIM, which we don't own - illegal - I don't think they want to...

    I don't know what your locality is and IANAL but my understanding of the DMCA exception for unlocking cell phones here in the US makes this 100% legal. I have never seen any representation that a sim card is the property of the provider - my understanding is it is the users property. The AT&T sim that comes with the iPhone is similarly also your property with which you can do as your wish. The DMCA exception states that you can legally break any encryption or DRM to get a cell phone you own to work with any network - this would include any encryption on the sim card.

    Thank you to everyone working on hacking the iPhone here! I wish I had all your skills!

    I don't know why it would be illegal to alter AT&Ts sim card. I assume that you've not activated service with AT&T and therefor have not agreed to any legal terms with them. As far as I can tell, you've simply bought a phone from Apple and it happened to come with an AT&T sim inside. I don't beleive that the Faroe Islands legal code would care much about that at all.

    Then again, I'm not a lawyer so you might not want to take my advice very seriously.

    Cheers,

    Barry

    To my knowledge, the SIM card is ALWAYS the property of the cell service provider.
    This is a tool cell service providers provide to customers for using their services.

    just want to point it out that a sim card costs you about 15-20 bucks when you're opening new line or change a sim card or move your old number to a new sim card. at this point a sim card just like a disk.

    DCMA does not apply in Canada, and in Canada I'm sure it could be argued loosely that this would fall into the "fair use" provision in the Copyright Act.

    However, IANAL.

    And when it comes unlocking a cell phone in the US the DMCA doesn't apply here. Of course the assumption is that you are paying for the cell service of the network you are connecting to - ie this is not like hacking a DirecTV card to get free tv where in that case you are stealing the service. Also, I believe the accomodation in the DMCA supercedes anything that would be put in an EULA saying don't unlock it.
