    Hello,

    I'm going on a trip to Europe (from the US) soon and I'll be putting a new SIM in my recently unlocked iPhone. Here's my question: will all of my push alerts follow me with the new SIM?

    In other words, are the push alerts tied to the SIM or some other unique identifier of the iPhone?


    Thanks a lot!

    Is this a jailbroken iphone to unlock it? I ask because AT&T refuses to unlock iphones from my experience. If it's jailbroken there are known problems with push notifications working.

    But they should follow the phone, not the SIM. Otherwise legit unlocked iphones bought in Europe would never have push notifications.

    It is jailbroken - but as of now I haven't had any issues with push alerts, so maybe I'm lucky.

    Good point on the SIM; I guess it uses IMEI or some other way to identify the phone.

    Thanks.

    it uses the UDID attached to your phone; which is good, because that number can never change.
