    Hi everyone,

    there is a new data plan of att prepaid service and it just began its service from 1st October. I also put this service on my Iphone 4, but the data doesn't seem to be working right now.....

    Does anyone share the same problem? I don't think ATT has right to block this service for prepaid iphone user if it is so..

    or do I need to set something up for the data? I turned on 3g data and cellular data..

    Thank you! have a good weekend.

    Yes, AT&T does have a right to block iPhones from using prepaid and it is stated in the AT&T TOS.

    Go to www.unlockit.co.nz on your iPhone and install the profile for AT&T. Reboot the phone and you are good to go.

    Happy that you got it working. Just remember that 200MB doesn't go very far on an iPhone.

    Also, AT&T throttles 3G speeds on prepaid. This means that you will likely only get about 300Kbps download speeds where as on post paid, you may get 2-3Mbps.

    I never got above 300Kbps when I used to use prepaid on my 3G iPhone.
