    Default Tracfone SIM

    Hey everybody, sorry if this question has already been discussed, I did a search to no avail.

    Anyway, I'm in the COUNTRY and my beloved AT&T isn't working at all

    Sooo, I was thinking about popping a TracFone SIM in there in my unlocked jailbroken iPhone 3G. I was looking online and have been hearing a lot of conflicting reports whether it would work and I would love someone with PERSONAL EXPERIENCE either way to let me know.

    (non-personal experience advice welcome as well )

    According to the wiki here: due to some proprietary software and communications of the TracFone service, TracFone sim cards will NOT work in "just any" unlocked GSM phone.

    Sorry
