    Default AT&T Data Service

    I tried to tell something about myself in my control panel but I was not allowed in there yet. Not sure why!


    I live in China.

    In China I use China Mobile on a new iPhone 3G S (jailbroken) both voice and data. No problem.

    My phone is unlocked and jailbroken!

    I am in the States for about a month and don't want to pay the extremely high roaming charges by continuing to use my China Mobile SIM card.

    After asking around I found that AT&t offers the best coverage where I am going to b while in the States. (Between San Antonio, TX and Dallas, TX)

    Bought a Go Phone SIM (AT&T) so I wouldn't have to sign a long term contract.

    So as not too waste too much money (not knowing if this would work) I put 25.00 on the voice and 25.00 on the data. They called it medianet or something like that. They told me it would be a G3 connection for data.

    As it turns out it doesn't matter if it is G3 or not because I can't get the data side of the SIM to work. Voice is fine. No data.

    The AT&T tech told me there was something I could do in my phone to release this but he didn't know what it was and I should search the net. I have spent the better part of a day doing just that and I have found nothing.

    So I joined this forum!

    Can anyone help?

    Again here are the specs: iPhone 3G S - Jailbroken and unlocked - AT&T SIM card with both voice and data service installed - Data Service is something like Media-net or some such name.

    Can use voice calls. Can't use data ... no Internet service

    You can try this website in setting up the APN for the GoPhone on AT&T. It works for me on my iPhone 3G. Copy & Paste into your webbrowser.
