    Unlocked Dell Streak, Does OLAM show?

    Wondering if anyone with an unlocked Streak on at&t have OLAM recognize your device?

    I've had mine for 24 hours now and it does not show up.
    Why you might ask? I have an account with the GF MEW1 dataplan and was thinking of placing that sim into the streak. But I have a feeling bad things will happen if I do (i.e. loose my Unl data)

    OLAM shows your phone instantly, if it's recognized. Otherwise, it would take a database update from AT&T and Dell to update all of the unlocked Streak's IMEIs. I'm keeping my unlimited smartphone plan on there, just in case. I'm always switching phones, so I like the idea of still being at to pop my SIM into my Windows Phone, or switch over to my iPhone whenever I want.

    ...and by the way, unlocked Streaks are on sale on Dell's website - $399 for the 16gb version.

    So what you guys are saying is that the unlocked dell streak that you can buy from dell.com come up as unknown in OLAM. Would I then be going off the reservation if I assumed that you could use your $10 medianet plan with the unlocked dell streak? That has been my experience with at&t, if the device is unknown then you can use the medianet plan. Thanks to anyone that replies to my question.

    Nope, Even though OLAM does not show its a Streak the system still knows that its a smartphone.
    You will get the sms notification that your on the incorrect plan and switch you automatically.

    Gotcha, thanks for confirming popcorn. That means At&t has all the IMEI's for the streaks. unlocked or locked.

    Popcorn's posts are incorrect. Disregard them entirely.

    Just got it today (unlocked) and still hasn't shown on OLAM yet. I thought that it was bigger but good size for me. The fact that it's THIN really helps! It fits to my jean pocket perfectly! I'm still a "blue" customer with unlimited mMode data, so how do I configure the settings to work with my Streak?
    Thanks,

    Johndoe01,
    Does the AT&T OLAM still not show your Streak?

    Yup, just checked a minute ago and still shows my previous phone (iphone 3G) I don't know why but it's been a long time, so I don't care any more.

    I've had my Streak since Feb 12th, and it still show's "unknown device" It's an AT&T Streak from BestBuy, but it's been flashed with the OEM DELL 2.2 rom, so I think it has to do more with the OS than IMEI number.
