The iPhone may have been successfully activated on a network outside of AT&T without approval, according to a UK report.
A user who bought both an iPhone and an AT&T prepaid SIM card says that he used the recently developed iASign hack to enable the phone’s basic use, but promptly placed the SIM into an unused phone, asking Vodafone to enable the device on its network; reactivating the phone again using iASign allowed the phone to operate natively on the European carrier’s network, he says.
While the phone still shows AT&T as the provider and lacks Visual Voicemail due to the lack of support on Vodafone’s end, the subscriber’s previous European number is said to have ported over and also works properly with SMS text messages. No mention has been made of EDGE data access.
