    I am having trouble getting the data connection to work on my 1520 and in need of any help. Thank you in advance for any tips. I have a line on my At&t account that has the unlimited data plan for the ipad and in which the sim uses the "broadband" apn, it works flawlessly in the other two devices I have that I could put the sim in. I have put it in my PS Vita and in my beloved HD2 running on Android and both didn't need any setup at all. I have also tried putting it in my Lumia 920 but no go either. I have searched for different APN settings to use but to no avail .. still no luck :( .. Has anyone else gotten it to work?

    You might need a different SIM. It sounds like you have an older 3G SIM, not an LTE SIM.

    Thx for the reply, but I had also looked into that and had replaced the sim once already and still did not work :(

    How are you getting a Mini SIM into a Micro-SIM slot?

    Well not really sure what size slots they are called but I had switched to the smallest sim available which the 1520 uses .. And then use sim adapters for everything else I need to put the sim in

    I kind of figured. I was just making sure you weren't jamming a Mini SIM into the SD slot. lol I'm thinking you have a defective 1520.

    Not sure if defective or not because it works just fine with a sim that has a normal voice, txt and data plan D:

    An update on my situation.. Ended up figuring out what the problem was. Needed to capitalize the b in broadband in the apn settings and worked like a charm. Although I noticed its slower to pick up LTE whenever my phone turns back on after a charge.

    Settings-->Access Point
    Add new APN
    ConnectionName: Any name
    Access Point: broadband (small case worked for me. if it does not work use Broadband).
    Rest of the fields leave bank
