$45 Unlimited talk, text + web on ATT's network for the iphone

Wasn't quite sure where to put this gem, but I did this yesterday and it worked flawlessly! Figured I'd share it with everyone on this site.

Quote:
Info back up because I feel bad for the people that bought a e71 because of this post.


Thought I would do a quick how to.

If you have a iPhone (3G, 3GS, 4) and want to use StraightTalk $45 unlimited WITHOUT!!! unlocking your phone, here is what you need to do.


A few thing you should know

1. Your phone does not need to be jailbroken to make calls, send plain text or use the internet! The only reason to jailbrake your phone is to make MMS work!

2. Your phone does not need to be unlocked to make any of these thing work!

3. All of this was tested on a iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, both on iOS 4.2.1, on the newest baseband. IF you have problems, upgrade to the newest IOS.




Goto Walmart (And only Walmart!!! NOT EBAY, NOT CRAIGLIST!!!! WALMART!!!!!)and buy either a Nokia E71 or Nokia 6790 phone and a $45 unlimited card. Bring it home and activate it. (other phones will not work!!! only the e71 and 6790 comes with a compatible sim) Before you activate, make sure the sim card from either the E71 or 6790 says TF64PSIMC4 on it, if its missing the P in the part number, it will not work!

After it has been activated and you can make calls from the Nokia phone, take out the sim and put it in your iPhone (you will need a sim cutter to make it fit in the iPhone 4, go here to buy one for about $7 http://www.amazon.com/Noosy-Cutter-M...8045936&sr=8-2)

Your iPhone does not need to be unlocked or jailbroken for this to work!!!

At this point, you will only have access to phone calls and plain texting!

To get your internet to working follow one of the 2 methods below, pick one, it doesnt matter which one, just one that you think is easier for you. (You can skip this step IF you are going to jailbreak your phone for MMS to work! Just go right to the "If you want MMS" instructions)

Method 1 - download the attached StraightTalk.zip file below, unzip it, and e-mail the StraightTalk.mobileconfig file to your iphone.

StraightTalk.zip

Open the e-mail in your iphone (which should be connected via wifi at this point so it can get e-mails) and open the attachment and install it.

Method 2 - Goto Unlockit - APN Changer for your iPhone from your phone while on wifi, click/tap on continue, click/tap on Custom APN, then type in att.mvno in the APN field, leave the user name, pasword and carrier fields blank. Click/tap on create profile, then install the profile.

You should now have access to 3G internet!!!!!

Nothing further is needed if you dont want MMS

IF YOU WANT MMS, KEEP READING!

But if you want MMS to work, you will need to jailbreak your phone, to do so, visit this link, and follow all of the instructions to jailbreak using greenpois0n http://www.jailbreakmatrix.com/iphon...ered-jailbreak You can download the newest version of Greenpois0n from GreenPois0n just click on the windows or mac icon to download.

Then follow these instructions after your phone is jailbroken and is booted into cydia.

search (in cydia) for TetherME and install it. It costs $1.99, not a big deal.

UPDATE: A bit of an update, you no longer have to install TetherMe APN Editing, the new version of TetherMe already includes TetherMe APN Editing. So skip the installation of TetherMe APN Editing below

After you purchase it and install it, search for and install TetherME APN Editing, its free. <---NO LONGER NEEEDED! READ ABOVE!!!

(The reason for installing TetherMe is to gain access to the Cellular Data Network tab, without it, you cant get MMS to work!!!)

After TetherMe is installed, exit cydia and go to your home screen.

Go to Settings, then General, then Network, then click on Cellular Data Network

This is what your settings should look like!

Cellular Data
APN: att.mvno
Username:
Password:

Visual Voicemail <----dont know the settings for this one yet, will update it when I figure it out!

MMS
APN: att.mvno
Username:
Password:
MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
MMS Proxy: proxy.mvno.tracfone.com:80
MMS Max Size: 1048576
MMS UA Prof URL:

How to change the carrier name from HOME to anything you want (like AT&T, or StraightTalk)

Search Cydia for a app called Fake Operator, install it. It will ask you to reboot your device, do it. After it reboots, go to settings and scroll down, you will see a new tab called Fake Operator, tap to enable fake operator, then tap on the bottom to edit the text. After you edit the text to whatever you want, reboot your phone and the new carrier text will appear at the top.


Thats it! Enjoy


---------- EDIT ----------

Pros: Unlimited talk, text & web on ATT's network at 1/3 of the cost with no contract!
Cons: You have to buy a 200 dollar phone and keep it in a drawer and not use it, only to make use of its sim, because it's married to the phone and you cannot sell the phone because the next sim that gets put in it terminates your service.

But ATT will still know/figure out by the imei number that its an iPhone.

Though technically, they say you need to have a data plan with all iPhones, and this is a plan with data, so maybe it'll work.

At some point I think this scenario will backfire. But if it works for a few months you broke even cost wise.

I didn't use that. I went to unlockit.co.nz via wifi on safari and put in the att.mvno in and voila, internet works great! I just had 2 of my boys do this trick and it is working flawlessly for them, and like me, they ported their numbers over. enjoy.

I know many people that use prepaid and postpaid at&t plans with iphones WITHOUT data plans, you just cant walk in the store and tell them what you're doing lol!!
also when when I set my ip4 up on gophone (at home online) unlimited talk text + data $75 a month I used all zeros for imei and use unlockit for data!!

maybe this will get some of the whiners on tmobile waiting on an unlock to use this method and stop crying!!

because this is the ONLY way for 45 a month unlimited everything on ATT's network. you cannot get it any other way with prepaid. I've been searching for this for over a year. this is the only way.

and? 250 up front saves you buttloads. the same services through att would save you that much in 2 months.

and how much does a contract plan rape at&t customers for after 3 months of service? It does not take a mathematician to figure out that the $250 up front is a WIN situation over a contract plan!! (well for a new user at least)

When you mentioned the model of the sim needs a 'P', is there a reason why I can't find the same model on the net?? I mean what I get the phone you mentioned.. down to the 'T', and the sim doens't have a 'P', then I would be fucked... correct?
