    I just got my TouchPad 4G today and turned it on (with the AT&T SIM installed) and connected to my wireless network. I created a new webOS account, etc.

    I then noticed "AT&T" as the carrier and got the notification about adding a data package. Tapping the notification took me to the AT&T Communication Manager. I then took out the AT&T SIM and put in my T-Mobile SIM card only to see "No Service" in the status bar.

    I went back into the AT&T Communication Manager (after I tossed the card away) and it then began to initialize. After 30 seconds or so, it said activated and "T - Mobile" showed up where "No Service" previously was ("AT&T" took this place holder when said SIM card was installed).

    I now have an "E" for EDGE next to the signal bars (come on 3G roaming agreement and/or 1900 MHz refarming) and am able to use the AT&T Communication Manager to track my data usage (not that I care as I'm grandfathered in the $5.99 T-Zones unlimited internet).

    While it's clear that I'm able to use T-Mobile's network without an issue, what is weird is that I had to "activate" it using the AT&T app. Had I not, I'm pretty sure it would have been stuck at/on "No Service."

    By the way, I'm running webOS 3.0.1.

    Any insight would be appreciated.

    EDIT: Interestingly enough, the internet and MMS APN settings were automatically populated.

    Internet used "wap.voicestream.com" with a username of "Handspring" (lol, no usernames or passwords for T-Mobile) and a password that I'm unaware of (it's encrypted).

    MMS used "wap.voicestream.com" with a username of "hs_null" and an encrypted password. An MMSC of "http://216.155.174.84/servlets/mms" and a max size of "300."

    I'll compare these to known T-Mobile settings. I know that "epc.tmobile.com" can be used, etc.

    EDIT #2: Some pics:

    Launch the AT&T Communication Manager and it should activate it.

    I didn't have to do a thing when I put my T-Mobile SIM in my TouchPad 4G, and I don't even have a data plan. T-Mobile showed up right away along with signal strength.

    About to become a happy owner of a 4G TP. According to my seller it is originally packed, so I do not know if locked or unlocked yet. Should receive it in about 10 days.

    Since I will operate it in Switzerland with a SwISSCOM data SIM, and I woud like to avoid making any mistakes in setting it up correctly also for the APP catalog (German catalog, only have a German virtual credit card, no US), a few assumptions and questions from my side:

    1. Is there an option to register (and profile setup) through Wifi only (as there was for PRE3 with Impostah, or is that not necessary anymore with TUCKERBOX)
    2. Is it best to create a new profile anyway for the 4G and not link it to a PRE3 profile?
    3. If it shouid be locked, is the offering from member siobhanellis still available?

    Any other suggestions and tips very welcome, of course. Thanks in advance.

    #1: Yes, it will let you go through WiFi
    #2: I put mine on the same profile as my Pre3
    #3: You have the answer already.

    You're going to get hooked.

    I currently have the 64GB White TouchPad. If I get my hands on a TouchPad 4G (any ideas besides eBay?), is there any way I can canibilze my 64GB TouchPad to upgrade the 4G to 64GB of storage?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question. It just popped into my head since I've been lusting after the TouchPad Go for months and I figure this would be the next best thing.

    Theoretically it should be possible, but I haven't heard anyone reporting one and showing off. Let us know if you're successful :-)

    Considering that there is a doctor available, here -> AT&T 3G 3.0.5 Doctor, I'd say it's official. Can't say about OTA availability, since I don't have a 3G TouchPad.

    Yes, OTA is available.

    I am looking to purchase a 3G TouchPad to use in India. Is there a way to confirm, before purchasing, if the TouchPad is unlocked and that it will work with a local SIM in India? Thanks.

    The nationality of your SIM makes no difference when it is unlocked. It's the frequencies the provider uses. So look at your provider, and the tech specs for the 4G.

    As for unlocking. Some seem to be unlocked on arrival. Most are not. Via one of my colleagues in HP, I've been helping to get unlock codes. So far I've helped everyone that has asked. However, I can only do this as long as my contact is willing to keep helping. So, it's a risk.

    If you want it unlocked, I need the IMEI and the Serial number.

    could someone help? I am using a prepaid SIM i previously had on my Veer, with a data package, and i placed it on the TP 4G. The AT&T Communications Manager is stuck at AT&T initializing.

    Just got a Touchpad 4g, I tried putting in my SIM Card from my AT&T iphone and it recognizes my number but it doesn't really show anything else, stuck initializing...
    I was thinking of using my pad as my main phone in order to take advantage of unlimited data & text (grandfathered). Can the pad handle calls, text messages, etc...

    The TP can take calls and text's, but only via a phone. They get transfered by Bluetooth. As yet, no-one has modified the software to do calls, although they have tried.
