[Q] Tmo prepaid won't connect to Google servers
New here, did a search but couldn't find anything, apologize if this is a duplicate
I got the S2 two days ago at the T-mobile store unlocked and put it on the $60 prepaid plan and i'm wondering if anyone is having the same problem
basically any service having to do with Google refuses to work - can't add gmail account, can't use the market, navigation, etc... they all give out a generic no connection error. The only thing that works is the browser.
This is only over the data network, regardless of signal strength or whether it's on edge or 4g - never works. Over wifi though? everything works perfectly, i can add my google account and all that, but as soon as i go back to data everything stops connecting/syncing.
Talked to countless phone reps, went through countless reboot sequences to no avail.
I finally talked to one clerk at a store who sounded like he knew what he was talking about, said it was a problem with the prepaid plans (he had an S2 on contract which worked fine). That they had the same issue with some blackberries a while back and i just had to wait for Tmo to fix it on their end.
So i just wanted to know if anyone is in the same boat or maybe can shed some light on when tmobile might fix this? I really don't want to return the phone but only have two weeks to wait for a solution
