Prepaid on Captivate

    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

    How to do exactly that to my new captivate? whats "dummy imei" ?
    i need step by step instructions or I will get lost easy.

    whats a black list? I just got my new captivate but I cant honor the contract.

    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.
