I have both a Focus and a Focus S, and I've noticed that Bing doesn't work on the S when on cellular/4G data. It works fine on WiFi, and strangely, it works fine over 3G with my SIM in the original Focus.
Either searching in the IE address bar or using the magnifying glass button on the phone, it will always ends up telling me to check the cellular or WiFi connection and try again later.
Any ideas? Everything else works perfectly on the S with cellular data.

Neither are SIM unlocked and both are on AT&T.
The original Focus is "debranded" to allow certain features but Bing still works on that phone. The Focus S is untouched.
I know that the S has issues with AT&T prepaid as it's a "4G" phone, but it's weird that absolutely everything else data-related works on FauxG.
I will try MMS later today or tomorrow and see what happens. That Bing doesn't work just has to be related to MMS somehow...

I thought they may have been related because "4G" Windows Phones phones are required to have the APN configured to work on AT&T prepaid, plus they need an MMS configuration (supposedly).
Now that MMS works--at least sending pics to myself--it's eliminated from being related.
Since everything else works on the data connection, MMS was the only thing up in the air. And since Bing doesn't work, well, it's the only thing not working...

Bumping this thread for justice!
If anyone is having trouble with Bing services not working on GoPhone service with their 4G Windows Phone, simply go into the Marketplace, then Samsung Zone, and download Wireless Manager.
Once installed, swap sideways, go into "Active APN" and change it to AT&T 3G.
Problem solved The phone still shows 4G but only downloads at 3G speeds, just like before.
