    I just ported my number to AT&T about 4 hours ago. I can make calls, but I can't do anything with data. When I try to check stocks or browse the web I get this message: Could not activate cellular data network: PDP authentication failure.

    I tried restarting the phone and resetting network settings, still no luck. My old phone no longer works (as it should be) and is powered down.

    HELP!

    I also ported my number to AT&T from T-Mobile. The rep told me that it would take 24 hours for the switch to happen. Nevertheless, my sim got activated in 15 minutes.

    AT&T finally fixed it. I was told my activation didn't go through completely. I spent about an hour on the phone with the tech as she verified and setup various things with my account. So the only thing that doesn't work now is email :(
