It works for me, I enter my pin and then can make and recieve calls, but 
it takes maybe 30-60 seconds for the 'enter pin' prompt to come up after 
x has started, and I've only once seen the GSM status thingy up the top 
indicating that it had a signal, it usually has the 'no signal' 
exclamation mark, although I can still make and recieve calls....
