Sorry for the long headline...
I just got the new unlimited $50 talk text & web, talk &text work
But the internet connection does not work...
I see a 3g icon at the top near the at&t logo but i can't get access to any site...
My friend didnt updated his plan and his using the prepaid for around $70 (his paying on data seperatly) he gets fast 3g speeds.
He used the unlockit method but when i try it nothing happens...
Im using iphone 4 on firmware 4.3.3
Anyone got the new plan today and got it to work?

Reset network settings, reboot your phone, then try again. Keep the APN settings there for this. If that doesn't work, do this process again but without the APN settings. It should work without any APN settings if on AT&T.
Btw, this iPhone of yours is an AT&T phone right? It isn't locked to like a foreign carrier?

I do also have the same problem with my iPhone 4 with the GoPhone $50 unlimited.
Originally bought unlocked from Apple.com from Europe.
Phonecalls and SMS works perfectly.
I have done this:
Placed the new Microsim in my iPhone, reset networksettings, reboot my phone, changed my APN-settings from Unlockit, rebooted my iPhone again, synced with iTunes...... And it still does not work!
I actually also went back to AT&T Store, and he tried to connect my iPhone IMEINR to the ICCID-number, but he got an errormessage he showed me, that said that iPhone is not allowed to be used as a prepaid phone.

Ahh! Finally I found out the problem.
By some reason, AT&T know how to distinguish between a smartphone and a non-smartphone.
Data is included for non-smartphone.
What I did was:
1. Pay $5 for the 10MB datapackage for testing
2. Changed APN for AT&T
So now 3G-surfing works perfectly

yes please help! i have the same problem..i have an iphone 4 on gophone with the $50 unlimited and i was hoping there is a wrok around for data with adding an extra data package...

As I said; Just add a Datapackage to the $50 Unlimitedpackage, and your iPhone 4 will work perfectly.
The reason I only did add 10MB, was to test if it worked. Now, I bought the 500MB-package!

i too am trying to figure a work around for this. the plan states that using a smart phone will not alow the use of data and it would need to be purchased separately, " **Smartphone users: You may use your smartphone on all GoPhone plans. A data package is required separately to use any data services on your device. " ima do some testing to see what i can come up with.
try this app from the app store called Onavo i havent used it yet but will soon be trying it out.

Okay so i think i got it to work so far.... I'm using a iphone 4 jailbroken with redsnow0.9.6rc16, running 4.3.3. I called 611 and went to the new $50 month gophone plan. The automative system should ask if your using a smartphone or not, i selected No im not using a smartphone. I went through the set up and i also i added 100mb data plan just in case it didnt work. ive been using Onavo to compress the data i would be using. im mostly on wifi at work and at home through out the week. But when im not and i open apps that use data, after im done in them i completely close them from being on in the backgrond to use as little data as i can. This is Day 6 of being on the plan so i turned off wifi and watched a 21min vid on YouTube and a 12min vid. Afterwards i rebooted my phone and checked Onavo and it says ive saved 14.37mb out of using 107.11mb so far. I logged into my gophone account and it says i still have 102689kb which i started with from the beginning. So i called 611 to see what it would say, and the system keeps telling me i have 100.3mb left.
So by this test id say im unlimited, seeing how ive used 7.11 more MB than i had. Now im not sure if i start using data like i use to (pandora,youtube,web) if AT&T will catch on and cut me off.... but so far so good!
