    So, looks like work is canceling my Cell plan, and I'd like to keep my cappy (which I bought, though on their contract).

    Is there a pre-paid low-cost solution to use the cappy on a prepaid carrier?

    If my company tells ATT to go F*^*& themselves on the cancellation fees, will ATT Blacklist the IMEI or anything, preventing me from using the captivate again?

    I just recently put a captivate on a prepaid plan the other day and it seemed to have worked fine. the customer hasnt come back yet, so im assuming all is good. I also managed to put an iphone on a prepaid using a dummy imei, but of course it has no data connection. (the captivate did though)

    Sweet. I happened on to a captivate, and go phone offers better service where i'm at. after reading about the imei blacklist, i am a little worried and wondered if i should just use tmobiles service, coverage be damned.

    thanks for your help

    Changing the IMEI is illegal in most countries and therefore is against forum rules to discuss. It's like forging the VIN# on your car.

    If you can't honor the contract then you shouldn't have bought the phone and agreed to a contract.
