3G wont work on the Motorola ES400.
Data isn't working on the $50 plan. I have checked the APN and it is correct.
It could be because the ES400 is a relatively recent model (as far as WM6.5 phones go), and the identical model was/is sold by AT&T. I suspect a pattern is, if a foreign phone is identical in model number and radio frequencies to an AT&T model, its IMEI may be in the range of the ones AT&T recognizes.

That's a good point. It was worth a try.
Thank you b005td. How do I get them to swap out to a standard sim? What do I tell them? Sorry to sound naive, but I guess I would not know how to phrase such a request to them. Thank you.
Here is another link, which may help you answer my question:
Canadian unlocked Android phones from Rogers, Bell, Telus should be compatible providing they fit the other specs. The cheapest would probably be the Telus Optimus One, but anything nicer would do too.
Motorola Q9H do not work with data. Ive tried it with 2 different sims cards.
Tha Beat Bully
1) Were the two different sim cards the 6 month simlocked type or universal unlocked type Gophone/Att sims?
2)Did you check the APN settings?
3)Did they say that you have to add a data plan via text or other method?
4)Is this a Att or unbranded/other?
The Moto Q9H has been reported to be working so this is a possible new development. Whether it is on a bad imei list, later version, Att getting riled or the first four reasons listed remains to be seen.
I think I will start listing on a case by case basis as we had (with this) our second Windows Mobile failure and our first Symbian 60 success which both contradicts the known general data.
That way it is much more clear what works, what doesn't.
I have a HTC Desire (Android) purchased in Australia. Purchased a SIM card from AT&T the other day and signed up to the $50 unlimited plan, the lady in the store activated it on my handset and data worked straight away! Pretty good speeds too, the phone tells me it is connected to the HSDPA network and speeds are comparable to what I get back home in Australia. Didn't even activate it in a GoPhone first as some people in this thread have done, and the lady specifically told me data would not work on my phone, so I was pleasantly surprised to find it working!
Motorola q9h worked fine for me with a general sim card from Att store. The service map for my testing is charleston wv and the phone bounced from 3G to edge only once. I've tested a dozen or so phones as of now. In the phones that did work I noticed when you initially start the phone it stays @ 1 bar for about 5 seconds them goes 3 bars.
The Canadian HTC Desire from Telus has both 3G bands for AT&T. I'd expect it to work too.
