    hey
    recently all my friends have been hacking into t mobile to allow them to have unlimited text (for free!) they do this by changing some settings on the phone.
    I was just wondering whether this is dangerous as in would my sim card be blocked if T mobile found out:eek:
    also how would T mobile find out?

    They'd find out because everything you send is logged by thier systems. They won't block you, they'd just bill you for the cost plus an admin fee more than likely.

    No, but they can report you to the Police for criminal investigation and also instigat civil recovery against you.

    They can still send an invoice to your registered address demanding payment within so many days though.

    The case would get thrown out, unless the person accused actually confessed to it. Its way too difficult to prove.

    Assuming they have it, and they can show the phone is first-hand.

    they would probably just take your credit next time you top up if it was possible to 'hack' them.

    Is that in your legally qualified opinion?

    Technologically qualified. Its a soft hack from what I understand, all you have to claim is T-mobile remotely changed the software etc. Prove otherwise.

    First rule of business - always have an audit trail.

    I hope you are using a cheap phone with it, they could be nasty and block the actual hardware as well. Though I doubt you will get caught. How exactly do you do the hack btw, i havent seen the details of it...

    surely as it was mistake o the company, then said company would allow it and cover it up as their mistake.

    in the pst when these sort of things have happened, the companies have just swollowed their problems and mistakes and stopped it

    No it is impossible for the network provider to block the phone, the phone and sim are stand alone.

    As you well know, audits cannot be always trusted, especially in this case. Its one word against another, nothing else. Anyway, you have to have an address to send a court summons to, and prove that the person who bought the phone lives there. Another thing that is very difficult to prove on a pay as you go phone.

    Phones have their own numbers hardwired into them, pretty much like a mac address on a computer. These numbers are separate the sim.
