Default AT&T Possible?

I'm going to the USA for a month next month. Would like to use this phone over there so I don't have to carry a dumb phone for calling and this phone for wifi. Has anyone had any success using this phone on AT&T? Even if it's just voice and text, that would suffice. If it doesn't work there, is there another carrier that it will work on without flashing a new IMEI onto it?

You can order a SIM for it from Straight Talk. $15 for the card. $45 a month, no contract.

Straight Talk is CDMA, this phone will not work with CDMA outside of Korea.

Actually P925 is GSM; I use them.

BTW lately for some reason XDA app won't let me edit a post....

I might look into it then. A sk seller guarantees that the 760 works in America but may only do 2G. That doesn't bother me as much. If straighttalk is cheaper, I'll do that.

Actually looks like all frequencies work on the 760 for American gsm. Now need to figure out which carrier will work best for me.

Thanks again, drastic.

I just got into America, got my phone working on StraightTalk, no sweat.

Took a little bit of finagling to get the APN set up, but I think it was user input error on my part.
