    I have a 8320 Curve thru work. I also have a 1st Gen Iphone. I want to switch my Curve SIM card over to the Iphone and use it instead so I can view spreadsheets and other attachments that the curve cannot open effectively. I have down loaded the latest versions of Itunes and software for the Iphone. When I swapped the SIM I got a message that it cant be done with out administrator permission because of different enterprise software. I know this is incorrect since 4 coworkers have already made the swap without involving the tech heads. I caller ATT and they said my administrator had to be involved. This is ridiculous. Both are thru ATT and both are data / voice equipped. Whats the secret? With my curve SIM in the Iphone all I get is the screen showing it needs to be connected to Itunes and all I can do is make emergency calls. When I switch the SIM back over to my Curve it runs fine.

    Thanks

    Maybe your co-workers have special permissions, but if at&t stated you need your IT/administrator to be involved, then that is correct... working around that can lead to termination as it needs to be approved.

    Actually I know for a fact they didnt, the Company policy is dont ask, dont tell. If they issue an employee a BB, why would they care, as long as it didnt cost them more $$ ? I suspect this is a way ATT figures they can extort added fees from the customers. The Iphone simply does a better job for what I need then the Curve. It opens excel spreadsheets, has a better keyboard, and better browser, plus it is more secure since when tied to our network it locks down after 10 minutes of non use. The BB doesnt.

    Is the iphone unlocked/jailbroken? I had no issues taking the SIM out of my curve and putting it into 1st gen iphone that was unlocked minutes earlier...
