Can't get 3G, only Wifi

I have an old unlocked iPhone 3, and am using the same SIM card I've had for many years. I bought  100 MB of data as part of my Gophone plan, but I can't access the internet or get email when I'm out.  Everything works fine on Wifi. Anyone know what the problem might be? Thanks, Liz.

I suspect the problem is that AT&T doesn't support the iPhone on a prepaid Gophone plan. The only official data plans for the iPhone 3 and above are the postpaid iPhone data plans.

The use of the iPhone itself on a GoPhone plan is not the problem. The problem is that you need to change your APN settings to allow prepaid data to work on your phone. I cannot share any more details with you about this publicly, as such additional information is forbidden to be spoken of at this Forum.

Good luck!
