I'm assuming AT&T is using a different APN than connection setup installed.
That was not as easy as I thought... So first I got on chat with AT&T and they started out OK but ended saying they don't support unlocked phones of any kind. Then I went all over the net and found so much conflicting and useless info. Finally, I went to HTC and they've been pretty damn good over the past 4 days or so. I just can't believe that no one has had this problem before. Anyway, here are the instructions if you ever find yourself in this situation;
Start off by going to Settings>Mobile Network(or equivalent by carrier). Tap on add Internet APN. Fill out the APN with "pta" then click the save icon.
Next, click on Add MMS APN. This time, fill out the following information; Anything not below, leave blank.
Access Point Name: pta
WAP Gateway (URL): proxy.mobile.att.net
WAP Gateway port: 80
MMSC address: http://mmsc.mobile.att.net
Once again, click on the save icon and you're done.
Hope this can help someone else in the same position.
