I recently got a data plan with AT&T, but have decided to use an unlocked T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Blaze with their service.

One of the apps that I have on this fine Android phone is myAT&T. Every time I have checked my data usage, it shows nothing. Specifically, the LTE Data Basic meter shows absolutely nothing.

Similarly, when I login to my AT&T Wireless account online at https://www.att.com/...ion.olamexecute (login portal is easily found by searching Google for "att wireless login"), I get the following error:

UD1515: Unfortunately, we are unable to display your account information at this time. Please wait a few moments and try again.

Anybody know why this is? I am suspecting that it has something to do with using a T-Mobile phone on the AT&T network, but that is a guess.

I found this. http://forums.att.co...ue/td-p/3275673

I notice that in my APN settings, I don't have an option for bearer. I can't select LTE. I might be on to something.

It should look something like this:

APN: wap.cingular
User Name: WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
Password: CINGULAR1
MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
MMS Proxy: wireless.cingular.com
MMS Port: 80
MCC: 310
MNC: 410
Auth Type: none
APN Type: internet + mms
Bearer: unspecified (unless you're in an LTE area, then select LTE)

User Name / Password ARE case sensitive.

So far, this billing cycle, I have only used 3 megabytes of data out of a 3 Gb data plan. Because I am not using LTE or because I am using a T-Mobile device, all of my data usage does not appear to be recorded.

The only down side to this is that my bandwidth seems to be limited to download speeds of 7 Mbps and the upload seems to be limited to 1 Mpbs. This is probably due to the limitation of HSPA, but it makes me wonder if I could run torrents with ADownloader and not be charged for that data. This seems to be the case at the moment.

Interesting.
