Purchased 5MB data plan for GoPhone, but it is not working

Purchased 5MB data plan for GoPhone, but it is not working

Overview Locked to AT&T Atrix 4G purchased SIM free from reputable ebay seller (rumor has it they sell AT&T returns etc) Purchased GoPhone pre-paid SIM from ebay, has worked without issue for several months in non smartphone/basic phone Placed SIM in Atrix 4G and works fine for voice and SMS, data works fine over WiFi Today, purchased the $5 10MB data plan, shows up in my account as added without issue. Problem, it doesn't work, I have no Internet or data connectivity (gmail not syncing, Dolphin browser not working etc etc) All APN settings appear to be correct. What do I need to do to get this working? Any help appreciated.

If you have cellular data widget, check that to ON.

I have 4 widgets available, Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi and Flight Mode, all are off, I turn the WiFi on and off as I need, and, as I stated previously, it all works fine when I switch on the WiFi - cannot see that any widget is available for turning data on or off. I'm truly puzzled over this, on the face of it, it should be working.

Data widget is all by itself.
