Data plan for Gophone (original iphone)

I have an original iphone, which I bought few years ago and I'm using this an a Gophone. I bought a data package feature (100MB) to use the data plan. But my phone keep showing that "You are not subscrbed to a cellular data service". I've checked several times on account and I do have a data plan which cost me $15. How am I suppose to solve this problem? Please help!!. Thank you.

First connect to wifi, then open browser, goto unlockit.co.nz follow directions, first step is "custom apn" then it will ask for county of course your gonna select USA then scroll towards the bottom when you hit the "carriers" button select "go phone" I have personally test this with a 3G and my 3GS which is on go phone. You must restart your phone for it too work. Let me know if you need help or had any luck.

There is no where you can connect to wifi? McDonald's? Starbucks? If not and you have Internet connection at home, go to Walmart buy a wireless router, go home set it up. Connect ur phone to it once u do the steps. Pack the router back up and take it back to Walmart and get ur money back lol make sure u save the receipt.

Re: Data plan for Gophone (original iphone)

Did you buy an extra data package? Ex. $15=100mb

If its not doing it, I have not idea. I only personally tested it on the 3G and 3GS. I currently have a 4 but I am contract based now.

When I got my 3GS I had to redo it and It worked fine.

I would try to buy a data package if u already haven't, I also was on the $50 plan.

If it does not work I suggest switching to Straight Talk they charge $45 a month and they charge $14 for a micro sim. You will also be saving money depending on the data package. There is also H20 wireless that is a AT&T MVNO it's $50 for 250mb and $60 for 1gb both include your standard unlimited talk&text.

Give me a couple minutes and ill look into it. What is it telling you when you try to connect to a website? You have a 4 or 4S?

Ok, try to select just AT&T (not gophone) from the APN. I used that one on 3GS if that doesn't work try this one AT&T (HSPA+)
Since the AT&T branded 4S is HSPA+ that mIght work. I will still search for a solution if that does not work.

when I switch WIFI off and surf it says "Could not activate cellular data network" - ""You are not subscrbed to a cellular data service".

 

My phone is 4S...

That's what it did to me before I did the unlock it thing. Double check to see if the APN is in the iPhone.

Still looking, mostly seeing stuff for the 4 and they all say to do what you have already done. How many more Megs do you have left?

Skip to Step 3, since u have the sim card in and it's connected to a network. Hope this helps, I will continue to look just in case. Hopefully this will work.

I'm not sure I understand the following step:

5. Create a new configuration profile on the iPhone Configuration Utility <---(where is that??? on the iphone or PC??)

 

Thanks again !!!
