You know what my suspicion is? I **think** that it MAY work with other Samsung Android devices...anyone got a Galaxy Note 1 to test this on?

it worked on my Canadian S3 wow



when you say block? yes they can prevent you from using a stolen phone i.e AT&T stolen phone cannot be used on AT&T but can be used on any other network Big Grin
Nope. I'm the direct supplier of iPhone unlocks.
Here's an email I recently sent out to my resellers and should answer your questions.

"Dear Wholesaler,

We would like to inform you that as of November 1, 2012, AT&T has shared their blackist with T-Mobile. While our IMEI unlock will technically unlock nearly ALL AT&T iPhones, we cannot guarantee that a blacklisted iPhone will work on other major networks. (i.e T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon.)

We will not be offering wholesalers a refund for any returns that are confirmed as a blacklisted device. Please enforce a policy for your customers so that they are aware of this issue and will understand your return policy."

yes confirmed.

We have ATT unlocked for use with Straight Talk $45 and T-Mobile $30 plan, and here in Los Angeles, we are getting H+ speeds.

--my belief is that you must be in a REFARMED TMobile region to obtain HSDPA speeds

Nope. AT&T doesn't have the band that's required for T-Mobile "4G" aka HSPA+. However, if you're in one of those area that T-Mobile have reframed their network to 1900MHz, then it will work.

For now, using AT&T Note 2 on T-Mobile will only get you 2G speed but functions as a phone still. If you live in a city with reframed 1900MHz, you will get 3G.

Or you can switch to straight talk, get two sims one for Tmobile and one for AT&T and call 611 and transfer the service back and forth between the two sim cards whenever you like Smilie that's what I do. I fact I just bought a used AT&T galaxy Note off CL and switched my service over to my second sim to use the new phone (was on ST Tmobile sim).

Here in Los Angeles however AT&T has stronger reception and in more areas than tmobile however the speed is much slower than Tmobile almost anywhere I have checked. My wife has AT&T iPhone 5 and I had ST TMobile with Amaze 4G until yesterday and we would check occasionally to compare speeds. Many times in movie theaters or say deep inside Costco, her iPhone would have reception but mine would not. On the other side, I would get 8-11MB speeds while she gets 1.5-5MB.

With all that said, for browsing Internet I don't see/feel any difference between 3G and 4G. For Netflix, we don't have enough bandwidth to even try. For YouTube they both stop and buffer anyway. So I would not worry too much about 3G, 4G, HSPA+, LTE until we get true unlimited data available.

Didn't work for me. I have a T-MO Samsung Galaxy S3. When I tried to dial it, I got "Unable to Process Request"

Probably the seller of ebay Item: 321033698090
