hey guys so ive been reading about this loophole for the past few days now and i wanna make sure i do it right sooooo
today i went into the att store and got a sim card for my iphone 1st gen and activated it via itunes, i got the 200 text with unlimited data for 20 a month.
looked at MYwireless and it still shows that i have a 2gb plan (assuming it hasnt updated yet)

Wait and see. They might catch it later on and switch you back though.

Well like I said, wait for it to show up. See if it does, it might take time. Actually it might take until your current billing cycle ends before it sticks on to your plan.

how were people doing it within like 3 days to a week? >_<

Because their billing cycle is different? I mean if you add a feature, it isn't going to show up right away because each billing cycle has to start over for things to add. If my billing cycle ends on the 17th, it is currently the 22nd so I'd have to wait till next month on the 17th to see a change. If my billing cycle ends on the 23rd, and I change it today, it will start tomorrow bc the billing cycle has restarted.

oh ok gotcha gotcha mine is on the 23rd aswell lol. does the feature kick in before the next billing cycle or does it stay the same until the next?

Since you did it before the 23rd, it should show up by that time (if it worked)
Edit: sorry that wasn't clear. If you did it today or yesterday, any time before tomorrow, it should show up tomorrow if it worked.

I think part of the reason the change was so quickly was because they got the At&t reps to do in store or via the phone.

What ever happened did it never show up until your new billing cycle? I'm curious because I did the same thing but my billing cycle doesn't end until the 6th.

oh sorry, just seen the message now
it did not work for me via itunes. I had to call att and have them manually add it to my plan (told them my iphone 4 was out for repair) the data plan i had was the 2gb data plan for 3G, the 2g uses edge data "i didnt want to go over my data because of the difference and needed it changed"
they will then change it and u go get a microsim and call them back saying u just received ur iphone 4 again and would like to adjust ur data plan to the 30 dollar a month plan.
It will show up automatically after the manually change it.
when i tried to do it through itunes i would get an email saying the activation was cancelled.
