Default Unlocked G2 no data on AT&T

Hi all!

I unlocked my T-Mobile G2 successfully and took it to AT&T to get on the Go Plan.. The sales rep put in the sim card, money into my account and my call and text is good to go.. however there is no data at all.. I called AT&T CS and they gave me APN settings but still no data.. Ive seen people say they have LTE working on the same set up.. Any advice? Would flashing a stock AT&T G2 Rom work or would i get bricked?

Seems like the phone is compatible and uses similar bands.. At this point I don't care if it is 3G, 4G or LTE.. I just need data lol..

I have an unlocked T-Mobile LG G2 and it gets data fine on the AT&T Network with H2O (an AT&T MVNO). Double check your APN settings, and make sure data and sync are enabled.

I switched to Straight Talk (AT&T network) a few days ago and I get LTE (H2O only had access to the HSPA network of AT&T but not to the LTE or the GSM). Make sure you have LTE enabled in Settings -> Tethering & networks -> Mobile networks -> Network mode

So am I reading this right? You hand a lg d801 (t mobile) on straight talk using an at&t sim and you are getting LTE? The reason I all is because I was fixing to do the same and hand been trying to figure out if I will get lte

Yes, I got LTE with a Straight Talk (AT&T network SIM) on the T-Mobile LG D801. I did have 2 issues with the service:
- Every now and then, right after I end a call I would lose signal for a few seconds.
- Once in a while data would stop and I would need to go to airplane mode and back to get it to work.

That is awesome to hear thanks for the quick reply. I am really glad to hear that I hope I have the same luck. I have one in layaway at a local trade it store fixing to ditch Verizon in late November coming from a galaxy nexus.

Are you running custom ROM or stock? What APN settings are you using. Where are you located? Sorry for the 20 questions just trying to get everything lined up and ready to go so when I get my g2 I will be ready to go. I already have all the software to root and flash custom recovery and my unlock code ready. Thanks for any helpful information you can provide
