    Iphone 3G Data Issues

    Advertisement



    Greetings... any help is appreciated.

    I have a contract with at&t using a blackberry bold with an unlimited bb data plan on at&t.

    I recently purchased a 3G Iphone and successfully completed the jailbreaking and the unlocking. I used the pwnage tool to jailbreak and ultrasnow to unlock.

    Cydia and Icy Hot were successfully installed. I inserted my Sim card and it recognized it and I inserted my wife's Sim card and it recognized it as well. Both Sim cards are At&t.

    I am able to place calls. However, I can only access data via wi-fi. I receive an error message when trying to access data without wi-fi. The error message reads something along the lines of "unable to access data. Do not have cellular data plan."

    Any ideas?

    Terrible advice......go to AT&T to have your iPhone set up....trust me. You may want to un-jailbreak it first with the 3.0 restore first. This way you will be able to tell if your problem is jailbreak related (AT&T wont support it if its jailbreak related) before you roll up into AT&T with it.

    Iphone

    I want to use my BB Bold as primary and use Iphone when I feel like it. That is why I want to use the Iphone unlocked.

    I'm new to this too...

    The words BIS and server pop in my head:
    Could it be that blackberry data plans and regular data plans are different and one cannot stream "blackberry data" to an Iphone?

    There is/was no need to jailbreak it or unlock it since you are already a AT&T user it's the same network.

    You are actually just SIM swapping that should work just fine. Many ppl do that.

    Obviously something is not right as my iPhone is jailbroken and I have a bb data plan and everything works great. Wish I could be of more help but only on my second week with the iPhone.

    I agree that I did not need to jailbreak and unlock. I did because, from what I read, it is harder for at&t to ascertain that I am using using an iphone without appropriate data plan.

    May try going back and using redsn0w to Jailbreak and see if that does the trick.
    The phone should work fine without Jailbreaking so I suspect pwnage too did something to it.

    Restore to new and go through the process again. Takes very little time.
    I used redsn0w and Ultrasn0w on my 3G and it works great also.

    I had the same problem with the iPhone cuz I had the bb data plan and they told me it won't work you need a smartphone unlimited data plan not a bb. After that it should work and if it doesn't try the setting above.
