    What he needs to do is buy an AT&T SIM card and put it in the phone. I think you will need a password so you might have to call AT&T, or go the the AT&T store.

    you can just put in your AT&T SIM as Jalarm mentioned. However, with the supported bands in this phone, you'll only get 2g on AT&T. I believe that is why AT&T now has their own version of the Nexus S that has a different radio to support their 3G bands.

    It's a drag because if/when AT&T gobble up TMO, our current Nexus Ss will pretty much be useless. I'm hoping they'll give us a heavy discount to switch it out.

    As everyone has said, just put your SIM in and go. Remember, Nexus phones are unlocked! That's a big part of their charm. Google typically builds different models of the Nexus phones; with the only real difference being the 3G radio used:

    Currently, there are three models of Nexus S that I know of:
    1. Nexus S with a 900/1700/2100Mhz 3G radio for use on T-Mobile and European networks

    2. Nexus S with an 850/1900/2100Mhz 3G radio for use on AT&T/Canada networks, with compatibility in Europe as well.

    3. The CDMA Nexus S for use on Sprint. Will not work with GSM networks like AT&T, T-Mo and most of the world.

    All Nexus GSM models support the GSM (2G) bands: 850/900/1900/2100, which just about every GSM carrier worldwide support. While there's overlap with the 3G bands, they are 2G/Edge only.

    I believe one of the reasons the Nexus S is slightly more expensive than 500, is because it comes unlocked. So no passwords or unlocking, just slip an AT&T SIM card and you can use EDGE on your Nexus S.

    I just do the same thing. Got the white Nexus S from Negri...works perfect!
    paid $598 but sold my Nexus One (att 3g band version) to help with the cost.

    BEST Android phone I have owned to date...this includes the N1, Droid, Droid X, Incredible, and the Atrix which went back after 2 wks. Awesome device but glitchy with blur.

    Yeah problem with it is that it's white... not really a problem but black suits this device like a glove, it's classic Samsung look and the fact that Gingerbread is very dark makes it feel and look cooler. But still people have been waiting for one with AT&T bands, they got it, and I think that's great the more people can get their hands on this device the more devs could arise.
