    Default Free calls From anywhere?
    i was thinking, would it be possible to edit the file string for emergency call part of the phone to use that sorta as a proxy type thing to making calls? id like to figure this out, becasue money is a tight thing for me and i cant buy minutes. i was thinking this because i noticed, when you call att, a little blue circle appears where it says "3G" or "E". so if you could get that to stay on, wouldnt that be really cool?

    this is not possible, even if the baseband allows it somehow your carrier would not take long at all to catch on to you and they will be pissed off lol

    Maybe it is though! You wouldn't even need to have a sim. Like how you use the emergency call. You don't use a sim at all. So if you could alter some strings or something in the emergency call off of screen lock, then you could probably do it!

    Emergency calls are completely different from that, its best if you don't even try that. Thats kinda illegal and they take that strictly.
