Since WinMo, Palm OS, and non-at&t Android have been tested, I can test Symbian and at&t Android for those asking. But keep in mind that I am too froogle to have double unlimited plans simultaneously being it unlikely I can use up a single unlimited plan in the first instance. Be back with results next month.
Palm OS. Confirmed working with data.
Windows Mobile (NOT WINDOWS PHONE 7) Confirmed working with data.
Unbranded Androids. Confirmed working with data.
Foreign/non Att Androids. Confirmed working with data.
Iphone 3g/3gs/4 Att version. Denied data. Talk/text work.
Blackberry. Denied data. Talk/text work. 8310 curve is probably Att version. 8320 is unclear. Available in both Tmobile and Att versions. Older OS. That means newer OSs are probably out.
One thing about Blackberry though, Att gophone does not have BIS/Blackberry Internet Service. Was this taken into account during the test? Would having used Opera Mini have made a difference? This leaves another possible loophole.
Web OS/Palm Pre Plus/Pixi Plus (Att/gsm versions). Untested.
Nokia/Symbian 3. Untested.
Att Androids. Untested.
Samsung Bada. Untested.
Windows Phone 7 (Not Windows Mobile) . Untested.
I think the most important smartphones are the ones with a 3G Att channel available. Otherwise, you might as well put it on a Tmobile/Simple mobile $50 unlimited everything plan and get all the 2G you want for any phone, iphone included. And they don't have any dual smartphone/featurephone discrimination like Virgin Mobile, Att and Verizon prepaid do.
If anyone is using any of the untested devices and can get us a conclusion , we thank you in advance.
Also, if anyone finds a workaround or certain versions of the phones that don't work (iphone and Blackberry), that too would be greatly appreciated.
My theories: Iphone 2G MIGHT work. Unbranded, foreign unlocked/jailbroken 3g+ versions MIGHT work. Some Blackberries MIGHT work. As well as unbranded, foreign, Tmobile and other non Att Blackberries. Also, it is not confirmed whether it was the lack of BIS or just plain lack of data period which prevented the tested Berries from working with data. Perhaps a Opera Mini workaround could solve the issue.
Please post 'em if you got 'em.
What model device, what original carrier of device is and what OS it is running. Thanks!
Keep it simple here please. Try to list tested models only. Thanks.
Please keep this thread to testing phones if possible. Keeps it trim.
If you have tested a smartphone and can confirm whether or not it works with data on this plan ($50 unlimited everything feature phone plan) please list the model/make/manufacturer, smartphone OS and original carrier.
Htc hd2 works but the data is edge and 8320 bb is a tmobile branded phone that I put the Att service books on it. We put the sim in four more phones palm pixi a no go on data ; motorola backflip worked fine today: nokia nuron no go on data: but the most surpising is we tried every iPhone variant 3G,2g, and the 4 where the ones I was able to test . Now the phones tested belong to friends. The iPhone 3G,2g and 4 were jailbroken then I tried the 3G on normal firmware with an apn change and still a no go.
Why is it that when someone finds a loophole, they want to tell the whole world? Eventually, with enough publicity, the loophole will be closed. Don't expect to be grandfathered in to an unauthorized data plan.
