No data access on ATT prepaid but my plan has data

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

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


I can not longer help with AT&T. I am now using Patriot Mobile with a T-Mobile SIM card.

USA - Faith Wireless a virtual AT&T provider kicked my PinePhone off their network.

Here is the message I got from the Faith Wireless technician

I have some bad news. Your device came up registered as a Mobile Broadband Device when the Registered IMEI was updated. We do not service Mobile Broadband Devices. The reason you were able to have service before is AT&T had not previously been policing their networks. With the impending 3G Sunset they've begun doing that and you won't be able to use this device with us anymore. You may put your SIM card into another compatible device if you want to continue with us.
