Right the phone is locked via its IMEI. Not the SIMWhat you posted is perfect and makes my point, the phone is what was locked, network has nothing to do with it.. Thanks for posting!
Wait seriously! I thought you finally really understood! Are you claiming what you posted early was correct? Everything you linked was 100% true, but was not what you claimed earlier? All you linked was how an unlock code is made, and how to obtain one.no, you are confused!
as a loop hole, it means that a phone number can be used to unlock, which is not true. When the carrier verifies the phone number against the IMEI, they will find out the phone is still locked.your confused, I said the phone number was a loop hole in at&t's unlocking program, go back and read
I sent you a pm, I will do my best to get you to understand there, if you want I can walk you through it.as a loop hole, it means that a phone number can be used to unlock, which is not true. When the carrier verifies the phone number against the IMEI, they will find out the phone is still locked.
Interesting, here it's opposite with PBS. In the Burlington DMA with Directv, everyone gets Mtn Lake PBS (NY), NH Prime PBS (NH), and VTPBS (VT). In the Boston DMA, you get WGBH, WGBX, and NH Prime PBS. In SE VT, you get all of them except Mtn. Lake.That's a difference between cable and satellites companies.
The satellite companies don't provide local stations in markets which border around areas outside the United States—which is the case with Detroit getting CBET, the CBC affiliate for Windsor.
Additional PBS stations included by cable stations—for outside markets—aren't included by satellite companies. (This is the case with WCMZ and WGTE, the PBS affiliates from Flint and Toledo, Ohio. They're made available to subscribers only from those markets.)

I would like to see that ... maybe the could expand the "Significantly Viewed" channels .... which most of us have never seen.I wonder how this is going to effect local channel lineups because in some markets, the u-verse lineup is different then Directv's lineup. For instance, in Detroit on U-Verse, they carry CBC from Windsor, Canada and I also get PBS from Flint. Maybe there's a possibility those 2 channels get added as Directv local channels in the Detroit market.
Have to admit, it would be nice if Cable and Sat played on an even playing field having the same rules to work with.Well that's the reason why I brought it up. If AT&T wants a unified channel lineup for both U-Verse and Directv, then they'll have to sort out any differences in channel lineups with the local markets. My guess is that under the eyes of the law, U-Verse is considered a cable company since they have to purchase franchises and pass on the cost with charging franchise fees. I understand that cable and satellite play by different rules so I'm sure in the long run, AT&T will have to do some lobbying (as if they don't do enough of it already) to get the rules changed to make it an even playing field.
