If you purchased one of the iPhone clones (lately coming in plus and mini versions like the i9+ or the i68 mini), then you've probably been frustrated if you've ever tried to set up the Internet on that phone. In this tutorial, I show you how to set up the Internet on your iPhone clone for AT&T cellphone service.
Haven't Bought One Yet? ... Then Don't!
Before I begin, let me say that even though I have created a tutorial showing how to set up the internet on iClones, I am not recommending that anyone buy one of these iPhone look-alikes. Actually, I recommend you buy phones only from reputable manufacturers like Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, or Apple. In another article here, I provide several reasons why you should not buy a fake iPhone.
If you're already an AT&T customer, consider getting the LG Thrive, which is marketed as a prepaid Android smartphone. But, whether you are a prepaid customer or not, you can put your AT&T SIM card in it. Beware that non-prepaid customers will automatically have a smartphone data package added to their account if you ever access the internet with it.
But if you already have one of these fake iPhones, then I hope this tutorial helps you get your internet working.
Beware Unexpected Internet Charges!
Oh, and one more thing. If you don't know what you're doing, you can end up with a phone bill that is several hundred dollars more than you expected. In general, you should be okay as long you don't spend too much time on the Internet, don't watch any videos, look at a lot of pictures, or download more than one or two games games. Still, you shouldn't do much on the Internet unless you're familiar with how it will charge you. You should call your carrier for information about this.
Let's Get Started...
Well, we'll have to do two things: (1) create a GPRS data account, and (2) create and activate a WAP profile.
Create a GPRS Data Account for AT&T
Create And Activate a WAP Profile for AT&T
And that should be all there is to it. If you live in the United States and if AT&T is your cellphone provider, then you should be able to access the Internet now. However, if you have any problems, please check out the troubleshooting section below.
When I try to connect to the Internet, I get the error message "GPRS Not Subscribed."
SOLUTION: Click here.
When I click on WAP, I get an empty screen or the error message "Please Wait" for few seconds and nothing else.
SOLUTION: Make sure that you have a SIM card in the phone.
Well, I hope that this tutorial helped somebody out there. Please feel free to leave comments or questions.
