09-04-2011, 04:20 PM #1APN settings for ATT gophone data plan not working
I have an iPhone 4 and i'm using it as a gophone. I added the 500mb data package feature. I then went on unlockit.co.nz and tried each of the APN settings but none of them work and I am unable to access my data service.
Can anyone help me with this?

The right one should be wap.cingular
Make sure that's the one you have selected when going to unlockit.co.nz. Try network settings first, then installing the correct apn. To do this, go to settings, general, reset, network settings.

Thanks for replying so promptly to my dilemma.
I tried the wap.cingular as the APN settings however this still didn't work, any ideas on what I could be doing wrong or leaving out?

Did you do the network settings reset?

yeah I did the network settings reset

I did some research on old threads about this topic and it seems that there are mixed responses. So, I'm not sure what's going on.
Do you have ultrasn0w installed (you shouldn't)?
Does the phone make and receive calls?
Have you tried accessing the internet without an APN installed?
Is cellular data turned on?

I don't have ultrasn0w but I do use the Gevey Ultra sim. The phone can make and receive calls etc. I just tried it without an APN installed and it didnt work and cellular data is turned on.

You should probably take the Gevey SIM out

I am having the same problem. I have an unlocked iPhone 3G running IOS 4.0, with a brand-new AT&T SIM card. I reset the APN using unlockit, but I still have no data connectivity without wifi (I can send and receive calls just fine). I don't have either of the extra things mentioned in prior posts installed. Have I done something wrong? Why would this workaround that seems to work for most people not work for me?
Could AT&T have recently plugged this hole somehow? The posts I find online from people saying it doesn't work are mostly quite recent.
Thanks for any suggestions!

Take the unlock off of it.

Any thoughts? I'd hate to have to do a complete restore.
Edited to add: I just did a full restore (using my custom .ipsw file), and there is still no recognition of the AT&T SIM (it knows there is a card in there, but it does not show the AT&T signal). This is a disaster.

Is your phone locked to AT&T

Update: I reinstalled Ultrasn0w, and it is now recognizing the AT&T connection again. Still no 3G data connection, but at least I have a working phone again. I guess I need to give up on data without wifi, because removing Ultrasn0w was a big mistake.

Why do you need to unlock if you're using AT&T? Is your iPhone 4 not originally locked to AT&T?[/QUOTE]
Because i'm using the phone as a gophone and the iphone 4 will only work with AT&T contract plan

I have found my solution to this matter...
I am on an iPhone 4 tethered 4.3.5 firmware but using redsn0w_win_0.9.8b4 with 4.3.4 firmware to DFU restart.
Currently on GoPhone data plan 100MB.
Recently i ran into the same 3G network problem with it not loading webpages and the only thing that works was Google.com
To resolve this, I went ahead and removed from Setting>General>Profile... then went to unlockit.co.nz switched the APN from regular US - AT&T to "US - AT&T (wap.cingular)" because it states under this forum found here... AT&T Wireless- PDP and APN Types
NEXT, I did a RESET NETWORK under my iphone. Setting>General>Reset>"Reset Network Setting"
Once resetted, we MUST reboot, for me i have 4.3.5 tethered so i went ahead and did DFU got into redsn0w_win_0.9.8b4 with 4.3.4 firm and boot tethered now. Basically a hard reboot, not just respring.
I got back into the iphone, turned on my 3G network for AT&T and cheers! i got my 3G network back
The only small problem was... I have to re-add all of my WiFi
This 3G not loading problem might have occurred recently because we switch the unlockit.co.nz settings somehow and forgot to reset network and reboot? or/and you could have added US - AT&T regular from unlockit.co.nz and it's been working but then it stopped.
The problem if you followed moderator i.Annie, maybe it will not work if you Reset first, then change APN. Because basically you reset while you are on US-AT&T. My method was just the opposite... change APN first, then reset network.
FYI, no Gevey is required for me. I'm on Prepay AT&T.
My GF uses Gevey because she's with T-Mobile.

This did not work at all, after multiple tries. If you do a "Reset Network Settings," aren't you undoing the change you just made and reverting to the factory settings? In any case, it certainly didn't work, which meant I had to keep re-entering my (very long, very secure) wifi password to connect to the internet at all. I don't understand why the unlockit workaround isn't working with a jailbroken phone, when it seems to work for everyone else...

Not necessarily reset APN, but WiFi and everything else does go back to original factory settings. For me it works if I change APN to the correct one first, then reset network settings, then reboot at the end.
