Yeah, I think the problem is that it knows that its ATT but it doesn't know what to do with the connection. You probably have to set a manual APN setting. Go to Settings-->Wireless&Networks-->More-->Mobile Networks-->Access Point Names-->Add Button(Upper Right Corner)
Use the following values:
NAME: (type anything you like, this doesn't matter. Use "AT&T Phone" or "My Phone", something like that. Just remember that every access point you create should have a different name.)
Proxy: (not set)
Port: (not set)
Server: (not set)
MMS Proxy: wireless.cingular.com
MMS port: 80
Authentication Type: (not set)
APN type: (not set)
APN protocol: IPv4
APN: enabled (may need to check this, not sure about your model)
*DOUBLE CHECK SPELLING*
These values may not work. They were just the first ones i saw. If they don't work, then i will look for a new set of values.
If they dont work, also try the same settings with the username and password blank
When its added make sure you click on it in the access point names list.
Also go back from the access names list and make sure your "Prefferred Network Type" is set to Global.
Hopefully this works for you.
