Thank you for reading my thread and attempting to help me.
Here is my situation:
I have a jailbroken iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1 that was previously activated with a regular iPhone plan. I upgraded to a new iPhone 4S and had my account transferred to that phone. My friend is in need of a phone so we got the $50/mo unlimited prepaid plan. We had it turned onto a regular sim in a brick and mortar AT&t store. At home I cut the sim into a micro sim and placed it in the no longer active iPhone 4. It instantly recognized the sim and showed AT8T service. I am able to place and receive calls flawlessly. At this point I am incapable of using data on the phone. I have read articles and seen videos on youtube where people have accomplished this, but I have yet to be successful with it. I have also read that its just plain not possible and you have to add data to the account.
Help my with solutions please:
So is there a way to get the data on that plan to work; if not?
Of the people that add data plans I see people quoting different prices for different amounts of data. Some people say the $25 plan for 500mb and some people say $30 for 3GB. Can I use the "DataConnect 3GB for iPad" plan?
Help me come up with my best option. I appreciate your time!

From what I have read on these forums you cannot get data to work on that $50 unlimited plan. You will need to do what I am doing and add the separate data plan. Under the prepaid section you can buy either the $5 for 10mb (yeah right), $15 for 100mb, or $25 for 500mb of data. As far as I know you can't get the ipad plan to work, but I'd gladly pay a little more for 3gb rather than swapping between the 500 and 100 plans each month.

I'm using gophone, $25 for 500mb data, almost never use it as a phone so minutes aren't an issue.
