    I am currently using the ATRIX on a gophone sim and everthing works fine. Bought an ATRIX 2 and assumed it would work, the only things that do work is voice and basic text nothing to do with data will function off of wifi. I spoke with at&t tech support and with gophone persons (3 of them) they cannot provision pre paid sim to allow data to work. ..All things are subject to change.
    Got a sugestion on another site for APN settings did a google search and now data and mms is working

    Yes it works. As warjo1 wrote before me, you just need to add the correct APN.
    I got my Atrix 2 and experienced the very same issue, only voice and sms worked out the box. While in the store, the guy at the front desk, provided a new sim card, didn't worked. He called another guy, this guy said: LTE wont work on prepaid yet. I told him: This phone is not LTE is just HSPA+, he said, 4g is only LTE, so your Atrix 2 is LTE. After that affirmation, I said: OK man, thanks, bye!, walked 4 steps outside the store, went to access points, added the one I remembered from my old phone and voila!!!!
    It is just amazing how the ATT Reps know nothing about the phones they sell.

    The very same day I went to a Verizon store to play with the Droid Razr, it was amazin how the guy knew everything about that phone and also about mine... better reps at verizon? probably!!
