Using another IMEI to activate the SIM card proves nothing about the ability to activate using an iPhone IMEI.

Nor does your post or link shed any light on the subject
Ya, as another poster said, I would like to know for a fact that AT&T booted someone off the network for using data on an international unlocked iPhone on the network. I used my iPhone last year in NYC activated by an eBay seller on prepaid. I felt that something was not quite right with the service, for example, slow data speeds and loss of connectivity...but moreover, it worked.
I realize the paygo data plans are no more (in lieu of having to pay for monthlies) but, can anyone confirm they will actually bar you for using an iPhone? The alternative, like last time, is just to have the dealer enter 0's for the IMEI I guess.
Unfortunately all the MVNOs are no-go's for me, because only AT&T offers UNLIMITED Canadian text on its $50 plan.
I can answer this question for everyone. It has been made a truth AT&T doesn't allow data usage unless you get a apn changer for any iphone (3g and higher).On to the iphone 4 with a jailbreak and ultrasn0w,ultrasnow fixer, and samprefs you use it as a gophone. alot of work for it to work properly as a go phone but it will work . In my three years as an iphone user and almost four year of being a go phone customer I have never been booted off for using data on an iphone .AT&T reps always say data will not work if you use that phone.
Apple just makes it harder to modify APN settings, but it's doable and with that you can use any iPhone on GoPhone.
I used the "all 0's" trick for my IMEI and it worked flawlessly. I needed to add data packs to get data (as well as APN change) but there was never an issue.
Yep, people all over have used iPhones on prepay as long as they both have existed. Just go to the activation page, enter zeros and you are good to go.
I think the AT&T reps in the stores had been trained to tell customers it was not possible to have an iPhone on prepaid, and obviously they won't help people do it, which was sad being that they will help customers with Android devices all day long do the same thing.
