Day 2 with my Note. Something I should point out: I may have mentioned earlier on in this thread (or another one, not sure), but I did a "manual override" of my IMEI with my SGS2 way back in May by using the IMEI of an Infuse 4G display unit from the AT&T store. Basically, I asked the service rep to associate the Infuse 4G's IMEI with my phone line, and that has stayed that way ever since.

So far, that Infuse 4G IMEI is still what is registered to my line, and thus far I have had no issues whatsoever with using my Note. No texts of doom, nothing. Just a great experience so far. Hopefully it will remain this way for the foreseeable future!!

I'm posting this as an interim solution (in addition to backing up your /efs folder and deleting the contents of the original) for those of you having problems until AT&T gets the real issue fixed. Just FYI

Apologize if this has already been suggested, but why don't we add a poll to isolate some patterns? Or perhaps the gentleman who spoke to AT&T via email could ask for the imei range of affected devices?

This is what I did. Only difference was I did this over the phone with an AT&T tech rather than in store with a rep, and got the Infuse IMEI from my good friend Mr. Google rather than from a display unit. But the concept is exactly the same.

For whatever reason, while the Note IMEI now thankfully is associated with a phone rather than a tablet it apparently won't get you provisioned for the phone APN (at least not yet). That's basically what the AT&T tech told me. So you have to play this game of using another phone's IMEI. The AT&T people go along with it, I suspect because they realize you're not going anything wrong, and instead it is a problem with AT&T's system. Good for them!

I have a question.
I'm not 100% sure whats been going on in this thread, but here's what I'd like to do:

- I have a SIM unlocked Motorola Atrix 4G.
- I have an unactivated AT&T SIM card.
- I'd like to have a DATA ONLY PLAN on it.
- The only thing that has data only is a tablet plan.

If I took the IMEI of a tablet and registered it to my SIM card with a 4G tablet data plan, would AT&T say or do anything if I used it on my Atrix?

I have an unlimited data / text smartphone plan on a Google-branded Nexus One, and I am planning on getting the unlocked Note. Will I be flagged by AT&T? If I just switch the sim card, I assume I will only be getting 3G speeds. Right? Do I need to upgrade my plan to get 4G? If so, will I lose my unlimited plan? Thank you in advance for your replies.

It looks it you are on an unlimited media net plan you will be flagged. If you are on a iPhone unlimited data plan you should be fine. I also looking into a note but changed my mine.

This might have been mentioned somewhere in this massive thread, but why not just back up and delete the /EFS folder?
