    Default A peculiar problem with Data (Internet) on an unlocked HTC Inspire 4G

    The two HTC Inspire 4G we own are unlocked (not rooted). While we travel internationally, we purchase a local SIM card for phone calls, texting and data (email, browsing etc.)
    On our trip to India all worked fine. However on a recent trip to Colombia the SIM card and Data service we purchased worked ONLY for calls and text - no data on both phones. I tried two different companies with no luck.
    Further more, upon return to the US I tried a prepaid MVNO ptel.com who recently converted to GSM standard (T-Mobile network).
    Again, the data doesn't work.

    Questions:

    1. Did anyone else had a similar experience?
    2. Is this a known issue with AT&T and is there a solution?
    3. Would rooting the phones help?
    4. If yes, is there a recent, updated guide/ROM for rooting this phone?

    Thanks for any help.

    I had the same problem with my unlocked, not rooted, Inspire. I had to enter carrier's APN settings to get data. I now use a T-Mobile sim in my phone and I had to enter their APN as well for data access.

    I Reinstalled the OS (Factory Data Reset) and that resolved the issue.

    Sorry, I no longer have that phone, but it should be simple. Go to Settings and check every sub menu till you find it.
