Good evening. I've tried to do some searching but I cannot locate the exact answer ... Apple iPhone forum
Data plan question for AT&T / SIM swap from Blackberry Bold
Good evening. I've tried to do some searching but I cannot locate the exact answer I'm looking for. I've owned a Blackberry Bold since May and an iPhone 3GS since they were released. In the past, I was able to setup my account to use the Blackberry Plan and I could swap my SIM in to the iPhone which would allow both voice and data. If I tried the iPhone data plan on the Blackberry, I was receive gateway errors from Blackberry.
I activated my Bold earlier last week and found that when I placed the SIM in the iPhone with the BB data plan, only voice and sms would work. Data was not enabled. Was something changed on AT&T's end that blocked this work around?
Any help is greatly appeciated. I need the iPhone for work and the BB for personal. It's a pain to IMEI swap and data plan change every day and woudl love to avoid it.

BB plan should work on both

- Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.
Right, they used to but they do not appear to any longer. Any tricks or tips?
Yes, I also use a BlackBerry and iPhone3Gs. I was using a BB data plan. Last year when I had the second gen iPhone I could simply swap the sim between my BB and the iPhone no problem. Now AT&T has blocked that.
But VVM still works fine between both devices....
Hard to say what's happening.
