I'm getting frustrated and I need help! A few months ago, after doing my research I bought an AT&T Iphone 3GS on E-bay for use with AT&T's GoPhone plan. I was under the impression, using Iphone with Gophone was relatively simple, (regardless if AT&T claimed it wouldn't work.) In fact, at first it worked flawlessly, before AT&T detected it and shut off the data features from working.
I only use maybe 60 minutes of talk per month, and maybe 20 minutes of internet? Therefore, I don't need a $60 per month contact for minimal use, but I do need a smartphone with working data functions occasionally when I'm working and away from the office or a wifi connection.
After AT&T told me they couldn't help me, I went back to doing my research, and it appeared Straight Talk was my solution? There were plenty of videos on Youtube showing people getting a straight talk sim card, popping it in, changing the APN setting and using it on their Iphone without problems.
So, I canceled my GoPhone account and ordered a Straight Talk smart card with the unlisted monthly plan for $40 something dollars. I've gotten the card and activated my account. My phone is now working for text and phone calls, but I still can't use data! And that's the whole reason I need the phone!
I go to change the APN carrier settings at unlockit.nz, just as the Youtube tutorials show, but when I go to install the carrier settings to Smart Talk, I keep getting the message "Profile failed to install. The UUID for the profile "APN Carrier Settings" is not not unique.
I've scoured the internet for the solution to this problem. I find numerous posts with people having the same problem, but nobody ever replies with the fix! I did find one suppose solution last week involving manually changing the settings using Itunes, but I can no longer find the post describing what I need to do!
I need help! How do I solve this problem! Why can't I get my Iphone data to work when plenty of people are using Iphones with Straight Talk and posting the videos to prove it!
