    What will happen to the people who used that number (so they did not have to sign up for the 2 yr AT&T contract ) when they upgrade to 1.1.3?? I didn't use that SSN # but a different one so I didn't have to go through the BS AT&T contract, plus I am only paying $53.94 a month as a go-phone. I just want to make sure nothing happens to my iPhone which I take care of very much (no hacks/jailbraking breaking/apps on mine).

    The same thing that happened to the people who did the same thing as you on signup that also did all the other firmware upgrades.

    yeah, i am using it as a go-phone. is edge supposed to be faster under a 2 yr contract? i must say, i am quite impressed how edge is working for me and i am a very critical person when it comes to my gadgets. maybe it's because i live 5 minutes outside of Wash. DC.


    to sum it up: this is the best devices i've ever bought and well worth my money. my only two downsides - 1. it is an AT&T exclusive two year contract and 2. no adobe flash lite.

    999-99-9999 does not work anymore.

    And as far as EDGE on a contract compared to "prepaid" EDGE, there is no difference other than the difference in coverage areas for prepaid users versus users with a contract. I have no idea why, but most carriers have a separate coverage map for prepaid users

    I know it does not work anymore.

    What will happen to the people that used that number????

    I am just scared as I don't have a SSN # (studying here). I use the phone as a Go-Phone. I just don't want my iphone to brick when I update.

    I believe thats not a hack so your phone wont get bricked as ATT did activate your phone. If anything, people using false social security numbers will be dealt with individually and not through a software update.

    I wanted to do the go-phone plan as well, but heard a number of people say that using all 9's as a social resulted in AT&T contacting them.

    I accidentally stumbled on another method that may be of use. My mailing address is a Rural Route (RR # and Box #). Apparently the system has no idea what this means and will return the credit check inconclusive and offer you the gophone plan as an option. When my credit check failed I got a phone call from AT&T rep within minutes and he explained that rural routes are not recognized, but he could offer me the 2 year plan. I told him I'd prefer the gophone plan on my screen and he asked if i was sure and then reminded me that I can also upgrade to a post-pay contract account at a later date.

    For further confirmation, a coworker also lives on a Rural Route and had the same experience, minus the phone call from AT&T.

    So if you have a P.O. box address or a Rural Route address you will probably be offered the gophone plan through itunes.

    It'll be worse than Y2K. Nuclear bombs will go off, for population control. Gore initiated this after he invented the internet.
