Sim Cards
« on: July 08, 2008, 09:25:51 am »
I'm expecting my Freerunner soon and am wondering if the sim card issue has been fixed?

Can I expect any AT&T sim card to work like it would in any other commercial phone?

According to this thread on the mailling list it has been fixed with a firmware update:

You go to the openmoko store (US page): http://us.direct.openmoko.com/

and order the 850 Mhz tri-band version.

In the interest of keeping people informed before they get a phone and get upset if there are problems.  It looks like there are some issues with some SIM cards:

They haven't tracked it down yet, but it looks like it is not carrier specific.

I've gone in on a group purchase for the Los Angeles area...picking it up tonight.

[edit]
My Cingular (ATT) SIM card is working in the Freerunner.  Note that I have had the same SIM since Cingular.  Several of the folks with ATT 3g SIM cards could not get a registered signal.
