    Default 3G data problem
    whenever i switch my iPhone 3G's data connection to 3G nothing loads. The loading bar just stays in the same spot then after a minute it says "load error: timed out" i've tried it in different places and even had full bars but still got the same error. It works fine on EDGE.. What should i do?

    does your carrier support 3G? if so, have you tried to restore and re-jailbreak?

    I'm using the AT&T GoPhone prepaid service. 3G works on that doesn't it? It's a part of AT&T too.. and yes I've tried restoring

    I have no idea since I don't live in the US, but since the AT&T network is capable of 3G I guess that should work. If a freshly restored iphone has this problem, I would expect a hardware error ... best solution would be to take it to the genius bar if you can do that (that means if your phone is bought in the US)

    edit: I just thought of something. It could be that your 3G settings differ from the 3G settings you have with a normal ATT-iphone-plan. in that case you need to change those settings. can you access settings > general > network > cellular network on your iphone? I suppose it's not accessible for AT&T users but maybe we are lucky ...
    in any case, you need to go the AT&T homepage or call them or something and ask for the 3G settings you need to use (that means you need an APN, username and password)

    thats probably the problem.. i have the APN settings accessible since i have 2 carrier profiles installed but i have no idea what APN, user, and password to use for the GoPhone service.. know where i could find them?

    btw, my EDGE data, phone, and texts work
    the only things that dont are 3G and MMS

    I think it can be found if you visit
    help.benm.at
    from your iphone.

    but i'm not sure if the AT&T stuff will cover your plan. you will have to ask the AT&T support for your settings or search their website.

    yea thats where i downloaded my APN settings but it doesnt say anything about gophone so im not sure if that was supposed to work. i would call AT&T but they have the worst support in the world no lie. all they do is tell me to get a contract and theyres nothing they can do. i know the answer! i need a better carrier
