Can we please verify if this method works or not? What about the MMS settings which Net10 asks you to change as well?

Hi Nightwing73. My name is NET10 Janice. All you have to change is the APN settings of the phone to acquire data service on the phone. Thanks.

Ok...I did this but I still get "Could not activate cellular data network...You are not subscribed to a cellular data service" error when I try to open Safari and go to a website.

Under these settings what do I put?

Access Point Name (APN): att.mvno
Access Point User Name: <NET10 ACCOUNT USERNAME> <= WHAT GOES HERE? I HAVE A FORUM USERNAME OR EMAIL I USE TO ENTER THE NET10 SITE..WHICH ONE?
Access Point Password: <NET10 ACCOUNT USER PASSWORD> <= SAME HERE...WHICH PASSWORD?
Proxy Server and Port: proxy.mvno.tracfone.com:80

I t seems it's not as "cut and dry" as you make it out to be. The apple configuration utility works fine I just need to know what exactly to put in these fields as the username and password field are confusing. I used the email and password i use to access my account on the website but I still get no data availability.

Ok I was able to get to the Cellular Data settings on the iPhone itself using an app called Tetherme.

Anyways...I have the following

Cellular Data:
APN
Username
Password

Visual Voicemail:
APN
Username
Password

MMS:
APN
Username
Password
MMSC
MMS Proxy
MMS Max Message Size
MMS UA Prof URL

Internet Tethering:
APN
Username Password

Could someone please direct me what to put into these fields? I have tried the obvious ones per the APN settings provided but I still have no data and really am getting discouraged at this as I thought I really had an answer. What am I doing wrong? This is the second attempt to try to do this as the first time I did not have access to the APN settings like I do now but I am not sure what I am doing wrong and the username and password fields are throwing me off and the other settings which I do not see.

So if anyone knows how to get an iPhone to successfully work using either the Apple Config Utility or another method please share with the rest of the group! Thanks! :mrgreen:
