wierdest thing, i cannot remember if packet data was checked before or not? is it possible someone remotely hacked our sg2s to turn it off?

or maybe it was off the whole time and att did something to their network that required this setting to be checked now?

all i know is i have been using sg2 on att for past 3 months no problems until today

ok so i got the galaxy s2 to work but this is the weirdest thing that happened. here is the story

my iphone 4 broke so i ordered a galaxy s2 from a online retailer. it came in today and i brought it to the att store to obtain a sim card since iphone 4 uses micro sim. the activated a sim card for me and checked to see if everything works. after about 5 mins everything worked except data and anything that had to do with data didnt work. spent hours of research and call tech support and they still couldnt get the data working. so after wasting hours i said F it and went to the att and bought the samsung infuse. went home played with the infuse and then i said i would try getting the galaxy s2 to work 1 final time before i start my return procedures. i popped in the sim card and then i seen the 3G symbol at the top of the screen and then data started working. everything is working flawlessly now without a problem.

does anybody know why it didnt work before? or did i had to use a android device that was registered with att to jump start my plan? weird i still cant figure it out

My S2 lost all data but it was a while before I question ATT as I know that they are upgrading towers in downtown Chicago.
Turned out that my packet data had turned itself off.
I think it may have been something to do with the power saving settings as I ran it flat beforehand but the issue hasn't recurred so I can't say for definite.
As a matter of interest is your access point wap.cingular or are you on the HSPA+ 4G service?
