There may not be a data plan associated with her SIM card.
Ask her to log on to her att.com account and check what services she has.
Let us know if that helps!

If the Windows Phone is equipped with LTE, it uses a different APN than a phone that does not have LTE (which the Captivate does now). This alone would prevent the data network from working. You can resolve this by manually entering the non-LTE APN (just Google around for AT&T APN settings), or calling AT&T to see what APN the account is provisioned for .
