    Default Question for AT&T subscribers

    I have the S4 Active (locked). Has there been an issue with just taking out the AT&T SIM and popping it in the One Plus?

    What do I need to do to replicate apps etc?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. you should not have a problem with swapping your same-size AT&T SIM Card into an unlocked phone. if you do - just pop into your local AT&T store and they can give you a new SIM card.
    2. all of your apps should automatically reinstall on the new device once you sign into your Google/Gmail account. as a backup - you might want to use this app to email yourself your App list with links and archive it -

    Nope. No problem. Once you put your SIM in the OPO, it will automatically select the ATT LTE APN.

    You can backup your s4 and just restore from back up on the OPO or just reload all of your apps manually from the play store. All the apps you have downloaded are there.

    What they said. It was super easy to go from my Moto X to the OPO. My Google data was restored automatically when I logged into my Google account and at least half of my apps autoinstalled. I manually installed the rest but it was relatively pain free. All in all it was smooth and simple.

    Agree with all of the above... Pain free process....

    I was not receiving text messages and found out it was Google Voice conflicting with Hangouts. But after calling AT&T they did set everythingup on their side for the OnePlus so I would recommend calling and making sure it is set up.

    Coming from my iPhone 5s, the APNs didn't populate correctly when I put the SIM in the OPO. I called AT&T, updated the IMEI to the OPO and a few minutes later everything came in correctly and it worked perfectly. From what I can tell, there's no reason NOT to call AT&T and update the IMEI. Initially there was, but AT&T has since added the OPO to their "register," if you will, and it's treated like any other LTE phone.

    Is there any technical advantage to having the IMEI associated with your SIM card/account to be that of the OPO rather than the previous LTE phone that was in use before? I was using a Moto X before and when I transferred the SIM to my OPO it all just worked. Will it work better?

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If you're getting the same service and speeds you were with your Moto X, I'd say it's fine to leave it as is. I don't personally know of any advantages of having your IMEI updated. When moving from Android to iPhone I always have to update because personal hotspot, visual voicemail and FaceTime won't work without an "iPhone" data plan. I never updated the IMEI while I was using my Nexus 5 and never had any issues. With OPO, I did have issues so I called them to update. I think you'll be fine.

    If anything, I would try avoiding getting ATT involved. It just increases the change of something getting changed on your accoint that you do not want changed...maybe just my issue...
