OS: Arch Linux Arm with Phosh

Finally got around to trying this and it worked like a charm, thanks for the info!

"charm" being relative - from a Terminal window I can ping att.com, so I know it's creating the network device and putting it online, but I can't ping any other public site, and I get nowhere with either Chrome or Firefox.  I know my prepaid account is good because if I put the SIM in the crappy flip-phone ATT sent me during the 3G sunset, it has a browser that works.

So it's either something about my pmOS setup, or possibly that I'm using the "real" IMEI for the handset and ATT is blocking it as an unsupported device. But why would it allow me to ping att.com?

I also tried some other APN, like PHONE and so on, no difference.

Thanks
