    Heading to Paris and have a pre-paid sim from Orange. Instructions are to put in, when in Paris, and download the config file for the data settings. Not an issue. My question is what will happen when I swap my AT&T sim back in? Will it default or is there anything I need to do ?


    Thanks

    It's probly changing the APN setting. Note what is now, and change back if needed.

    Settings -> General -> Profile.

    Make sure you do the restore prior to leaving. You can restore from backup but make sure the restore is done so that the unlock is pushed through to your iphone.

    When I travel overseas, I just power the phone off, put the new sim in, then power in back on. APN and all settings seem to adjust themselves just fine.

    A friend in Paris hooked me up. Prior to that I was looking at LeFrenchMobile or Brightroam

    Yes- there is enough credit on there so I do not have to bother with the top off while I am there. I hear that there are issues with US cards at times.

    I've already unlocked my phone. I expect to either find a store at the airport or near the hotel
