User Provided tested SIM pictures
Base on community post:
The 71324 is the SKU for the AT&T latest UICC. The 2022 is the Vendor and Version number.
Some cards the vendor numbers are
2 - G&D 3 - Gemalto 4 - Oberthur
Usually user will get CME ERROR 13 (sim failure), rather than CME ERROR 10 (sim not inserted) when 3G SIM not working.
CME ERROR: 32 is Network not allowed, emergency calls only, might because the card not activated.

Working and not working AT&T card
- Some AT&T cards have same vendor/ID number, but different contacts (Josh posted at 2008/8/24), following image shows that card that working (right) and not working (left) one.
Also, AT&T's new SIM card (left) will work with the Freerunner. It has been tested on om2008. On right is the same non-working SIM as the one shown in the above picture.
