You probably need to update your APN settings (settings > more > mobile networks > access point names).

Use the settings in the guide located here: http://www.straighttalksim.com/pdf/ST_SIMCard_ActCard_AT&T_R3.pdf

Do you have "use packet data" checked, under wireless and network setting>mobile networks?
