Can't Use My Data With My New Phone. Why?
I am on my mother's contract as a family line. She gets 10gb of data per month, as far as I know. I had bought an Avail 2 Go Phone recently, with it's own monthly plan (talk and data). Once I got the SIM for the line she had added for me on her own plan, I quit using the SIM I had gotten with the Avail phone. When I put the contract SIM into the Avail, I could use the data. She then gave me a Windows phone that she wasn't using any longer. So I put the contract SIM into this phone and can no longer use the data. Switched same SIM back to Avail and can still use the data in that phone.
What gives? That Avail phone is terrible, very staticy, weak signal. But being able to use what we pay for is a big plus. Why is that so, though? Why can data be used on the Go Phone and not the contract phone? It really makes no sense...
