    I have the HTC Inspire 4g, i have been told if i put it on prepaid (cuz i want the 50 plan) that my data will not work unless i have WiFi.

    How ever after reading some stuff online i think all i have to do is change some APN settings? But i cant figure out how to do so:(... help plz?

    Thanks!:)

    The fundamentals of it are there, but no, it is not possible.

    The reason being is that the data is only recognized by the network of AT&T. That prepaid phone company uses a different network.

    It should work. Is this an AT&T inspire? If so, just make sure the AT&T APN is correct and selected. If not and AT&T phone, you need to enter the AT&T APN.

    no, gophone is using the AT&T network.
    all prepaid companies are basically "reselers" of one of the major carriers services.

    AT&T: Owns and operates its own network
    Consumer Cellular: Uses the AT&T network
    U.S. Cellular: Owns and operates its own network

    Verizon Wireless: Owns and operates its own network
    Straight Talk: Uses the Verizon Wireless network
    Jitterbug: Uses the Verizon Wireless network
    Page Plus Cellular: Uses the Verizon Wireless network


    Sprint: Owns and operates its own network
    Kajeet: Uses the Sprint network
    Boost Mobile: Uses the Sprint network
    PlatinumTel: Uses the Sprint network


    Cricket: Uses the Leap Wireless network

    MetroPCS: Owns and operates its own network

    T-Mobile: Owns and operates its own network

    U.S. Cellular: Owns and operates its own network

    TracFone Wireless: Uses AT&T on most Motorola phones, T-Mobile on most LG phones and Verizon Wireless or U.S. Cellular on most phones without SIM cards

    Virgin Mobile: Uses Sprint in the U.S. and T-Mobile in the United Kingdom

    I am curious about this myself. TMy phone is rooted and unlocked and I was wondering if I just went out and bought a AT&T GOphone with an unlimited data, calling and text if it's just as easy as slapping in the the new SIM into my HTC.

    Also was curious if this is a good work around the AT&T tethering Nazi's.
