    Default Avoid getting caught using ATNT prepaid
    Hi, I just ordered a prepaid sim of eBay because I'm tired of waiting for the tmobile unlock for iPhone 4. I know ATNT hates when ppl use iPhones on prepaid so will there be a way for them to know I'm using an iPhone on prepaid? Is there something I can do to avoid getting caught? If they do find out, What can they do to my account?

    They will be able to detect it from the transmission of the IMEI of the phone. That's uncontrollable.

    For the time being, at&t pretty much has a 'hands-off' policy regarding iPhones on prepaid. They won't help you out if problems arise (that makes forums like this the means of support now), but they haven't booted people off prepaid for using one. This could change in the future, but for now you're okay.

    It'd be a good idea if you get a cheap at&t-compatible dumbphone and use it when you have issues & need to contact customer service. Don't tell them you're using an iPhone at all.

    Hope this helps.

    No there's no way to hide your IMEI.

    I used At&t prepaid with an iPhone for 6 Months and had no issues.
