Different Providers Other Than Verizon... AT&T, metroPCS? Unlocking SIM GSM?

I'd love to do the 50 bucks a month unlimited plan... But is it possible?



What providers does everyone have and use...



Also how hard is it to unlock the sim card, if it isn't already unlocked?

Re: Has Anyone Managed to Get This on The Verizon PrePaid Plan?

Hrmm if I can't do metroPCS or INpulse Verizon prepaid (Don't want Page Plus Cellular and their limited data) I might try and take it over to Shaka Mobile: http://www.shakamobile.com/index.php/shop/plans 60 bucks unlimited everything.

Shaka is a Sprint/Verizon MVNO and they've got a Samsung ACE on their phone list, to be purchased... So if I successfully got it turned on I could get them to tell me the MMS and Web settings for the ACE...... Hopefully that would work.

Well Page Plus Cellular is a 3rd party, and I was completely satisfied with them, just left cause of the limited data. I'd really advise anyone against metroPCS Flashing, once a phone is flashed it's damn near impossible to rebrand it back to the original service provider...

I'm waiting and hoping ReachOut Wireless comes out with a unlimited everything plan, I doubt they're going to anytime soon they're one of 3 government funded cellphone companies ya know free service if ya get social security or food stamps. But I don't see them having an unlimited everything plan anytime soon. Plus not to mention Shaka uses Sprint and Verizon towers, how can ya go wrong with that?

What are some Verizon MVNO's you'd suggest with Unlimited everything? I don't wanna get tied into a contract.

Or maybe AT&T Prepaid unlimited everything... 50 a month, how hard is it to unlock them sim card and set up the web and mms?

Re: Has Anyone Managed to Get This on The Verizon PrePaid Plan?

I was gunna retitle this but can't...

So I'm talking to someone who says they could flash it to metroPCS, seeing the problem listed here with at&t 3g I might try... My question is how hard would it be to get web and mms working if it was flashed to metroPCS, I don't like metro but I do like their 40 bucks a month unlimited everything...

I'm at a toss up between metroPCS and AT&T.

MetroPCS is CDMA, AT&T is GSM...you can't take a GSM phone and make it work on CDMA, just throwing that out there .

The Fathom is dual band CDMA & GSM...

So I thought it'd be able to work on eiither or.

I've seen people using it on AT&T but nothing on metroPCS

Like my HTC TP2 T7380 is dual band CDMA & GSM and it's on Boost's CDMA Network and people have flashed it to metroPCS

Re: Different Providers Other Than Verizon... AT&T, metroPCS? Unlocking SIM GSM?

the fathom has no metropcs Rom. But, if you search xda, you can find mms cabs for any and all, carriers. I have a gsm fathom on t-mobile and my Verizon unlimited one.
to unlock is as easy as calling Verizon and getting the unlock code if it isn't already unlocked.
