Just wanted to thank you guys for your help. I went to the AT&T store,
and after a couple of the employees looked at me cross-eyed, they
started digging through packs of SIMs. 3022 seems the most common one,
they did have one pack of 2022 that I tried for a minute or so, and did
not work, before they found their one pack of 4022's. I popped it in and
it works like a champ. One of the employees who was there when i
originally came in, and was most interested in helping me, was almost as
excited as I was.

Thanks again.
