    Hello everyone, first I would like to thank you for viewing my thread.
    Today, I traded off my iPhone 3GS, 16 GB,iOS 6, jailbroken and unlocked for a waaaay better phone. The Samsung Focus (Samsung SGH-i917)! So far, I really like this phone. Except for one problem. I bought the "UNLIMITED EVERYTHING PLAN (Prepaid $50 plan) for $50" from AT&T. I like it, only problem is that I don't know how to get my data working.. So if anyone knows the correct way to get my data working, or the "APN" settings for AT&T's GoPhone Data network, please comment below, or text me at '. Thank you! :)

    Your phone is already set up for AT&T, since it's an AT&T phone. The APN: wap.cingular

    As far as I know it should be all setup. Is there a SmartPhone data plan you need to add? That may be the issue. I don't think the $50 plan covers SmartPhones

    You maybe better off with something like Straight Talk

    See, that's the thing. You're supposed to buy one, I should have mentioned that's what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to bypass the SmartPhone data plan that you need to add. I've seen it done on iPhones with the $50 plan. Just wondering if there is anyway to do it with this phone.. They just changed the APN. That's all they did pretty much. Thanks for the reply by the way. :)

    I have a regular AT&T account (about $100 a month) and a Pay As You Go SIM card for work.

    On my Pay As You Go SIM card I pay $25 a month for 250 minutes and unlimited SMS/MMS. I add 1GB of Data for $25. So I pay $50 a month for it.

    If you need more than that you may want to look at Straight Talk ;

    Smart man, I'll have to look into that. I just hate wasting my money! Can you redirect me to this "smartphone package" that you need to purchase to use on smartphones?
