First, the guy at T-mobile was correct. T-mobile uses the 1700 MHz frequency band for 3G/4G data while AT&T uses 1900 MHz, which is generally supported by foreign devices. I recently tried one of the Go Phone sims (from a feature phone) in an old Captivate and it wouldn't connect either. You will need to make sure you are using a sim provisioned for a smartphone.
