SIM cards and AT&T

Picked up a pile of SIM cards from a local junk dealer. Turns out all
the older cards work just fine. My carrier is AT&T so I can not
activate an old SIM. The newer AT&T cards are model 71234G and 71234D do
not work at all. But people are reporting the 71234O working. So I
find one. It works... Mostly. After a while the phone goes back to a
"registering" state. At this point it will not reconnect. But If I
pull the SIM and put it back into my old Nokia, let it boot, then
shutdown and move the SIM back to the FR, it works fine... For a few
hours. That sounds like a connection issue. So the same test with out
the Nokia. Just reset the card. No good. My normal test it to run at
+cimi. No good. Fine I will by an old ATT wireless SIM card. AT&T
will not activate the old SIM because AT&T is not ATT Wireless. This is
just a pain. Wondering what the status on the new GSM firmware?
Could I get around this with a SIM card burner? Is there such a thing?
Copy the 71234O SIM onto one of my old SIMs?
