Question [Q] Omate 2G GSM (900) /3g 1900MHz

I just got my Omate in the mail this morning.. I thought it should work on ATT and StraightTalk but my sim is recognized anyone have any luck with getting these networks working on the US 2g/3G 1900Mhz version?

Yes however make sure you insert the Sim correctly. Also the cell phone signal on the watch is poor, so you might want to make sure that you are in a good reception area too. Mine works only when I am outside of buildings and house.

Page 29 of the manual shows how the SIM is to be inserted. The manual can be found in the "[INFO] Everything......" thread at the very top is this forum. This has alos been covered in multiple threads here as well as the G+ TrueSmart communities

Straight Talk APN's are not in the stock firmware. The correct apns are however in the Patch/MOD and have been for some time. I know because I'm on Straight talk on one TS and T-Mo one the other. If you have not applied the patch then I strongly suggest that you do.

T-Mobile works great too. Went there for a prepaid plan today. $10 for the micro sim, and then choose your plan. Since I plan to use it very little on cellular, both the $3/day plan for unlimited everything, or $30/month for unlimited web and text, and 100 minutes, both look good for this device. Good strong signal and even works here inside my house.

So they just charge you $3 for each day you use it so if you use the watch 5 days out of a month they will only charge you $15?

Yup. I leave it on Airplane Mode, so it isn't drawing any data. You can still turn on wifi in this mode & use that. $3/day gives unlimited minutes, data and text for that day.

The other option is $30/month for unlimited data & text & 100 minutes.

This is all on T-Mobile's prepaid service.

The option is hidden. You have to buy the SIM and activate it online.
