Default Help me use my BB Bold 9700 on Airvoice system

Please Login to Remove!

November 2011, I started using my BB Bold 9700 with the AT&T Pay-As-You-Go-Minutes plan. Although I didnít have BIS/BES server, I could still access the internet with the data package offered by AT&T. Life was good until April 2012 when AT&T no longer allowed customers on the minutes plan to buy data. Currently, I just use wifi to access the Internet using the hotspot browser but after Hurricane Sandy I feel the need to have a little internet access on my phone for emergencies.

I am looking at Airvoice which still allows data on the minutes plan and am trying to understand how to configure it for data. Can anyone out there confirm that this is what I need to do to get data to work on my phone for AirVoice?
ē Find your "APN Settings". Make sure the tick-box next to "APN Settings Enabled" is ticked.
ē Once you have done that, just below this you will see "APN:". This is where you will need to type in a setting. Set the Following APN
APN: att.mvno

Please confirm that I donít need some new service book. Do I need a different browser or will the Blackberry Browser or Media Net Browser work same as it did when I could buy 3G data. Also, if I screw up the APN settings, will that affect wifi access or is that independent?

BTW would these same settings work for H2O?

Thank you for all your help.
