    Default unlock succesful, however questions about bill

    i got my 3g phone unlocked etc. with ultrasnow and got it to work with my softbank SIM card. I tried to search for info about this but couldnt find exactly what i was looking for. sorry if its somewhere out there in the wild

    my current phone is unlimited data (maxed bill unlimited data...aka more you use the more you pay but only up to 4,000yen idea) do i need to worry about my bill freaking out about having an iphone hooked up to the sim now? the current sim card is in a crappy cheap phone so i am worried i will get my bill and crap my pants or something...before i fully switch i wanted to ask!

    basicly, whats the deal with the bill? will it just look like my normal phone? or will it freak out and be like "you got an iphone now we bill you up the ass"

    There exists tech to do such things - part of the IMEI uniquely identifies the device as a specific model iPhone (this is called the TAC)

    It depends on how tough your carrier is about this - AT&T in the US use such tech for example.

    thanks for the info. cuz of what you said i did more research and it seems that softbank is VERY stingy about this stuff. it will run, and use data. work fine. but because of how the data plans work (i ahve a caped data plan) if i used my iphone it would basicly UNCAP it allowing me to accumulate a HUGE bill if i used data (which...i would).

    seems they check IMEI often and its not that they "dont allow" but they dont support it. kinda tricky and funny if you ask me...good thing i checked though o.o

    someone should probably let others know that haha. however if your SIM has no data plan. works fine no issues. course you have no data but the phone part works.

    however i am not 100% sure and i am not about to test it. read mixed reports but the most up-to-date one says theres a difference in the iphone SIM and the normal 3g sims allowing for this un-capped data hole to happen. they warn you about tethering (tethering is uncapped) so maybe because of how the iphone pulls data it will look like a PC and not a phone and thus switchs to the uncapped data plan instead of capped data.

    well, only got one more year on this phone then i can get whatever new magical iphone 4whatever-ness for really cheap. plans are cheap here (5-10 dollars outright then monthly plan is 90bucks about...for unlimited data) only sad part will be jailbreaking that phone might be hard by then who knows. not really a question of if it will jailbreak just a question of how long
