It occurs at the account level, at their end, based on what they see on their network.

How do you know this for sure?

Where is the logic in it not being true? Otherwise you could just pop your sim in a second phone and start over.

I can say for sure that it's not in the phone. That means that the only other possibility is that the provider (T-Mobile, in this case) keeps track of it on their end.

Because it makes sense?

Otherwise, it would have to be built into every data-capable phone, ever made, in any year, by any manufacturer, from any country, and would be susceptible to being defeated in myriad ways by any nature of rooting hacks, cracks, alternative ROMS...

Nuff said. I'll give you a dollar if you prove me wrong.
