Can't get 3G or Edge to work.

Can't get 3G or Edge to work.

I recently bought a 3GS and have a prepaid month to month plan on AT&T. I just purchased the new $50 unlimited talk text and data plan. But I can't get the 3G or Edge network to work. Wifi works great but that's it. Any ideas?

Re: Can't get 3G or Edge to work.

Iphones are not supported on pre-paid plans.  You will not be able to get data.  Technically you need to be on  a post-paid account.  Since you have your own equipment, you do not need a contract but your plan would be at a minimum $40/month for 450 minutes and either $15 or $25 for the data depending if you want 200mb/month or 2GB.

So I'm out of luck this month since I already bought the package?

Not sure if a corporate store would help you make the change over? Never hurts to ask.

Not necessarily. Unless you find a way to change the phone's APN settings...
