Re: Wiped iphone- Orangekid

yeah that's all you gotta do doesn't even have to be an ATT one for the first boot connect to itunes screen, but to get any service on 3.1.3 you need an ATT SIM

Im sorry that seemed unclear to me. Someone told me if i ever have to reset the phone that the sim or phone wouldnt work anymore due to it being for a different phone.

GSM doesn't work like that. When u do a full system reset, the first time you turn it on it asks you to put in a SIM card, this is just to boot up the OS, you can stick a Telus SIM in there or TMobile or whatever you want, then connect to iTunes and it boots it up.

After that, to have service, you stick ANY att SIM it will work fine. To use another SIM for another carrier you have to jailbreak the phone and unlock it

How often is a full system reset happening? The sim that would go into it would be att but that sim doesn't have data so will that be the same when used for the iphone(outside of wifi)?

you're fine, just don't use data lol or ATT with charge you. Also ATT can detect you using an iPhone imei and will start charging you iPhone data, so watch out.

Can I block the data on those sim cards to avoid the data mishap? Then only use wifi?

you need to jailbreak your iPhone and then toggle off data with SB Settings, with an ATT sim card you can't edit the APN, so it forces you to use data.

Remember though, ATT can see that you are using an iPhone and will start charging you for iPhone data even if you have data turned off. It goes through your IMEI.

Re: Wiped iphone- Orangekid

You have to delete your original itunes and all files before you download the new one.
