    Sim Swap?

    Advertisement



    Hey! I used to have a TMO BB Pearl. I canceled the service and got an ATT Curve because my company hooked me up with ridiculous discounts. My question is: is there any way to use my Pearl again with my ATT SIM card?

    You have to get the pearl unlocked first. You can try calling T-Mo otherwise you would have to use an unlocking service.

    Could you explain how one would go about doing the unlocking? I mean the TMO service has been canceled for a while, I don't see what they can do about it. I just would really like you use the phone again w/ my current ATT service...

    You would purchase an unlock code which will come with instructions on how to unlock it.

    Re: Sim Swap?

    Well, I unlocked my Pearl just fine. I was actually surprised. I was wondering if I could/should update the OS since it is many months outdated. It was originally TMO but I unlocked it for AT&T. Which type of OS could/should I use?

    Any thoughts??

    Does it matter which OS I install? It was originally a TMO phone w/ TMO service but I unlocked it for AT&T. When is a new OS coming out?

    Theoretically it doesn't matter what OS you put on it, as long as you put an OS for a GSM phone... but sometimes it does. Basically the TMo os and the AT&T os is the same. Just delete the vendor.alx file and rename the myfave cod file and presto... you have an AT&T os (without the PTT).

    Hope that helps. Good luck.
