    I am currently using the ATRIX on a gophone sim and everthing works fine. Bought an ATRIX 2 and assumed it would work, the only things that do work is voice and basic text nothing to do with data will function off of wifi. I spoke with at&t tech support and with gophone persons (3 of them) they cannot provision pre paid sim to allow data to work. Hope this helps anybody else thinking of buying the ATRIX 2 and using pre paid with it..All things are subject to change

    I ended up choosing samsung galaxy s2 att, I am using pay as you go sim in it, had to go in and change apn setting for my data to work. But now I can use wifi or data, which ever I need, depending on where I'm at. The att techs, said data wouldn't work, because phone is 4g and my payg sims is 3g, hence, the reason I needed to change setting.
    Someone in another thread had the setting i needed.
    I am on att,text, data, everything works. Are you on att?
    Maybe you need to google and see if there is a setting to change in your atrix 2.

    AT&T disables data on smartphones on $50 unlimited plan. We had to switch to Straight Talk's $45 unlimited plan to get data to work on my Atrix phones and my wife's droid razr.
