Ebay U-Verse Receivers

Anybody ever tried using a UV receiver bought off ebay? Does it work?

All Uverse equipment belongs to AT&T so anything you find on Ebay is stolen property.  You'd have to get AT&T to 'provision' it and that may or may not happen. 


If you're trying avoid the equipment fee, using stolen property isn't going to work.
