AT&T

The current status of the SIM cards provided by AT&T is that many 3G SIM cards are problematic with the neo1973 SH1. This issue is known and there is a bug report for tracking progress: http://bugzilla.openmoko.org/cgi-bin/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=666)

Below are two tables to help users report their success or failure. If your card is not listed or have different results, please update the tables below.

(Note: When adding to the tables, please do not include the 20 digit ICCID, as this is your SIM's unique id. If you do your phone company will be able to track you down and 1984 may overpower 1973)

SIM cards that do NOT work:

5 Digit SKU Manufacturer Code 4 digit Vendor/Version Badge Notes
63512 G 3001 64k smartchip +CME Error 10 for AT+CFUN=1 and +CME Error 13 for AT+CIMI

73000 G 3021 blazing 3G fireball
73000 O 4021 blazing 3G fireball This sim will not work for me, although a user has gotten it to work below. Those steps only produce CME ERROR 13, regardless of amount of waiting.

71234 O 4022 blazing 3G fireball WalMart $18 Cingular Go phone package. This chip was also given with a contract plan. (Two confirmed working.)
73000 O 4021 blazing 3G fireball tried it using libgsm-tool -m shell (O, R). Just have to wait for 30-40 sec after registering. Then you can make calls consistently.

Vendor Codes:

  • O = Oberthur Card Systems
  • G = Gemalto (formerly Gemplus)
  • A = Axalto
  • D = Giesecke & Devrient

For info on the 71234 4021 see http://www.oberthurcs.com/getpage.aspx?id=65#application

Note: AT&T claims they cannot reactivate a previously deactivated SIM card. The CSR may give you the choice to force the activation at the risk of losing the current phone number! A word of warning.
