    Use data only sim in a 5s?

    I use one in my 4s but it’s not working in my 5s. Is there something I need to do to get it to work? Thanks!

    unlockit.co.nz, create an "AT&T Broadband" profile and install it, the 5s is trying to use "nxtgenphone" as the APN
    Left: Verizon Unlimited LTE, Right: WideOpenWest 500/50

    broadband...

    it will not stop you from accessing LTE.. Data only SIM cards use broadband for the APN.

    the "LTE" profile is "nxtgenphone" APN, which is for a different plan than you have.

    I use data only SIMs in various cell phones on both AT&T and T-Mobile using Google Voice for unlimited talk and text. AT&T can tell which device you are using and AT&T does not seem to care.

    On AT&T, a family member uses the prepaid $34.99 unlimited MB plan with Google Voice on a smartphone. I have a few of the grandfathered $20 unlimited data plans for the Mobley that are used in hotspot devices and smartphones using Google Voice. On both plans, AT&T has never bothered me with what device I use to access data. I never use an AT&T branded device in my setup, except the Mobley plans, which work perfectly on AT&T hotspot devices.

    On T-Mobile, I can put the SIM into any device, including T-Mobile branded phones, and get a data connection. I have not had a "conventional" cellular plan in years.

    Use data only sim in a 5s?

    For some reason now the settings (country, carrier) are blank when I tried it on a different phone. Does anyone know why? Thanks.

    Seems like the site is down. Are there any alternatives out there? Thanks

    unlockit.co.nz is working today. I had to use Firefox to access it. Safari wasn’t working for some reason.

    I know it mentions that it may interfere with data settings but has anyone been able to edit the apn successfully while being jailbroken?
