I returned from the UK with the an unlocked Galaxy Note (GT-N7000).

I have been using Pay As You Go T-Mobile, but only with EDGE as data.

I saw that the Note uses the same frequency as AT&T and figured I could at least get 3G from them. I went into the store and one of the sales people said I need to configure the "internet settings" for my Galaxy Note to have a data connection on AT&T.

He put the SIM card from the Galaxy Note on display and put it into my Note. I got full bars, but there was no little letter (E, 3G, H, etc.)

Is this sales person correct? If yes, how can the internet/data settings be tweaked?

What can be done to use my phone?

The problem is you are using it with T-Mobile which uses a different frequency for 3G/4G data than AT&T here in the U.S. AT&T uses the 1900 MHz band while T-Mobile uses 1700 MHz. Without the appropriate frequency you will only get edge speed data.
If the information is useful, Like the post, if the person was helpful, Thank the member.
