I seem to remember that an AT&T Prepaid/GoPhone could be immediately used on an AT&T mvno. Does anyone know if that's still the case? Or has AT&T changed their rules now?
I am thinking of buying one of the AT&TPrepaid phones that show up at Walmart or BestBuy, for use on Freedompop or RedPocket AT&T. But if AT&T has started enforcing 6-month locks to AT&TPrepaid, that plan is obviously out for me. Hopefully folks here can tell me of the latest developments. TIA.
While AT&T is no longer offering immediate unlocks, like they were for some time, I believe that they can still be used, immediately, on any AT&T MVNO. I try to stay up on this sort of thing and haven't read anything to contradict that.
Hey PEW, by any chance, did this happen to you on an iPhone? I ask because over at HoFo, I remember reading that iPhones are the only phones listed on the AT&T-Prepaid website as needing 180 days to be unlocked. (Should have bookmarked that thread, can't seem to find it now). If yours was an iPhone too, then there's still hope!
