Hello, I'm from the Dominican Republic. I have a couple of phones in my house. I have one phone activated with roaming under my friend who is american and have a Social Security Number, it works just perfect. One of the phones my young 15 years old brother decided to activate himself without letting me know. He read on this website (macrumors.com) a method where you put a fake Social Security Number and it gives you an option to activate a phone as a pre-paid and after the activation you can cancel the pre-pay contract and still use the phone as an ipod. The problem is that he used my real name and my credit card and my billing address in the United States, but he made up a number for a Social Security himself and it went thru. Instead of the option to activate it as a pre-paid phone it actually was activated with a phone number from AT&T. Now I have a 2 years contract with AT&T linked to my Credit Card without any ways to manage the account. I have to pay, but I can't even activate the roaming or change the credit card - I can't do anything without 4 last digits of the Social Security that my brother made up, because he doesn't remember it, he says he just typed in something. So I have a phone that I can't use, can't sell, can't do anything about, I have a monthly plan for an iPhone that I can't use (roaming is not activated) and I have a contract with AT&T with fake Social Security Number and I don't know how bad is it and if it can affect the owner of that number somehow. I really don't understand how did it happen, they don't verify that name or address have to match? Or it was a glitch in a system? AT&T refuses to help me, I called like 20 times already and they are keep asking me for the last 4 digits of that Social Security. And I'm keep telling them that I don't have ANY social security and the one that they have HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ME, because I'm not even a citizen nor resident of the United States and that my little brother just made up a number that did go thru their verification system. So I'm in the Dominican Republic, without any AT&T store on this island, really don't know what to do... Any ideas? Another problem that happened to my friend: He also lives in the DR and he also tried himself to activate his phone using this method published on the macrumors.com, but instead of offering him a prepaid plan they asked him to give a call to AT&T where they told him they cannot activate his phone and he should go to the AT&T or Apple Store to solve his issue. Now his phone is locked and connecting it to the iTunes only brings the screen about more time that they need for the activation (while they already sent him an email asking to call as I described above). I don't know if somebody can help us with our problems, while I hope that you can publish this information on your website next to that instructions about the free activation, so other people will not get to the same troubles we've got. Thank you.
