    Default AT&T data & jailbroken iPhone 3G/3GS HELP
    okay so here's the deal.
    we have AT&T already and pay for the basic unlimited data plan which is only $10 a month.
    we also have jailbroken iPhones [one 3G & one 3GS] we have jailbroken and unlocked them both, but when we put our sim cards into them.. we can't access the internet, it pops up a message that say "unable to connect. you are not subscribed to a data package" .. but we ARE

    this is the only time we've seen this problem. we had a jailbroken gen. 1 iPhone and once jailbroken, we could use the basic data package just fine.

    we don't want to have to pay the extra $20 each to get a data plan that works...
    is there a hack or patch that we can install from cydia that will allow us to use our basic data plans????

    please help!!

    Strange, my phones have been working from the get-go with the MediaNet service, (this is the only one compatible with the 2G/3G phones)

    Question! are those ATT cell phones!

    if so you need to rest your network settings. The way I look at it, is that I think you need to paid for the 15.00 MediaNet, since this one is actually 3G, the speed is 2100Mhz. I used it on mines with no problems, the 10.00 is more related to fist Gen and 2G phones.

    Did you activated the 3GS with the original sim card?

    we got the phones from someone we know, and they were already activated with their original sim cards..

    you have a 3gs working under the 10.00 media net plan?

    yes I do have media net in One of my 3GS, the only diffrence is the speed it concets to the web, a little slower than the regular DATA, But it does work!

    ANd trust the 10.00 deal only works great in any EDGE phone like the 1rst. gen, the 2G. you might need the MediaNEt service.

    My iPhone's are Unlocked, (3GS/With a LG incite service) (3G with a Samsung Service)

    Your phone is locked to ATT due to the IMEI/NSE, your phone was bought through ATT or is part of ATT. even if you buy it from Ebay still locked to ATT.

    you need to edit ur apn settings.

    get a wifi connection and go to

    Unlockit - APN Changer for your iPhone

    from your phone and down load the settings.

    it works!!!!

    Your apn settings should be

    wap.cingular

    everything else under cellular data should be blank. That should work with the $10 data plan, atleast it does for my cousin on his 3g.

    Sounds like you need the right carrier bundle for PK. (or)You could call them ask them for the APN, etc.. And manually enter these in the network settings. If you need help manually entering them just ask.


    Just so everyone knows 2100mhz is the frequency/channel, not the speed of 3g.

    I jailbroke/unlocked my 3g however tmobile does not give away the 3g network. However they are now using it for the first time with the new sidekick. Does anyone know how I can get it on my phone ?

    You CAN NOT use 3g on t-moble they broadcast on a different frequency than AT&T an the iPhone does not use this frequency and can not recieve the tmoble signal for 3g. If you are on tmo then your stuck using edge.

    LOL. Brad Swift, make sure you search. The questions has been asked a million times and now answered a million times.

    Nice direct response by the way.

    I'm also a user with the $30 text/internet bundle.

    A while back I changed my IMEI to a Razr and got the according rate plans (way cheaper), slapped my sim in the iPhone and everything works beautiful.

    When I changed mine to medianet account, my iPhone plans were 125-130$ with medianet/messaging unlimited my bill is exactly 87.02 every month. Been this way since november and it's never been more or less than that.

    Also the 3gs works on $10 data plan as well as the medianet accounts. Personally tested on both types of accounts. The $10 data is edge only in my area even with 3g Signal it still connects to edge only. I could speculate why but I'd just be rambling.
