[Q] Spoof Device for Carrier
I am on AT&T and when I log in to my account, it shows the device my SIM card is plugged into.
Is if there is a way to spoof the device AT&T thinks my SIM is connected to?
I'd like to stick a SIM into an Android smartphone, but let AT&T think that I'm on a Nexus 7 or some kind of tablet. That way, I'd only pay data at $30 a month for 3GB and use a VOIP app for calling. In theory, I can make this work with a LTE version of the Nexus 7, but I don't want to carry around that giant thing as if it was a regular phone.
Also, would the phone automatically always try to establish a "phone connection" even if I just have data? I notice there is no way to toggle off the phone part of the device without turning on airplane mode. Perhaps messing with the API or something?
