An AT&T tech rep did some quick research and told me that the phone, like you said, is restricted to Verizons frequencies and is incompatible with at&t's towers but I insisted on explaining to him that others have been able to get it to work with at&t before, and then he told me that the phone needs to be a world phone in order for it get service with at&t. The software update that is posted on that link above shows that the "Device is enabled for Global Roaming"
Does that make it a global phone? The at&t rep wasn't exactly sure if it is a world phone? I can't update the phone from sense 4.0 to sense 4.1 (which the above update is for) because the Verizon rep told me that I need Verizon to activate my phone and the only way to do that is to pay $35 for activation and then pay $90 for prepaid service. Then I would be able to go to software update and update my phone. I really don't want to pay $125 just to update my phone. Even with Wifi, it still won't work because it needs to be activated. There is probably a way to update it without Verizon's activation requirement, I say this because the htc phone and Verizon is, I believe, built in separate.
So first I need to get service up on this phone before I mess with the APN.
So what would you suggest I should do to unlock the SIM? I think I have the APN figured out but like I said earlier I need service first.
You'd have to have the latest OTA from VZW that unlocks the world phone capability.
