    What is the difference between the iPhone data plan and the regular ‘Smartphone Data Plan’ for andriod and such?

      Hey Kane,
      I don’t believe there is one any longer. But at one time there was a specific iPhone Data plan and mine included unlimited data for a flat fee. As of now I’m using my iPhone’s data plan (grandfathered in) with my Nexus 4.

  2. hey, it didnt work for me for some reason. im in philadelphia. had been using an unlocked iphone 3 before getting the google nexus 4..can you help me please?

    Huh. I just tried these settings, and they worked, but I get crap speed. Using Speed Test I get 1-2 Mbps down, 0.67 up and HSPA+:15 is showing in the settings.

    On my T-Mobile Monthly 4G sim I get around 13-14 Mbps down, 2-4 Mbps up. I just wish the T-Mobile network was HSPA+ in more places here. I can go a couple floors down in a building and have no signal.

  4. Great post. I currently have an older AT&T unlimited data plan. If I switch to an android, follow your steps – will my data package be affected?

      Ecavalino, it’s difficult to say how AT&T will react. But I’d gander a guess that if you don’t tether like crazy, or at all, you should be fine since you’re not necessarily using any more data than you would if you were on your iPhone. I have the same $30/month plan as you, and so far so good, though I have yet to receive a monthly bill.

    • if you have the “unlimited” data plan still att with let you keep is no matter what phone you have. I used to have the unlimited plan but changed to the mobile share with 3GB because after att started to slow internet it as so slow I couldn’t take it and changed data plans.

  5. Great post, thanks! I popped the sim out of my iphone 5 and used a nano-micro sim adapter. Phone worked but data didn’t. Your post saved me. 8mb upload and 1mb download, not nearly as good as lte but speed isn’t everything.

  6. Thanks for this post – I’ll be making the same switch when my N4 arrives around Christmas and might have to use your guide.

      Let me know if it does or doesn’t work. Some people are reporting an LTE connection, but that seems to be limited to areas with Band 4. I’m in LA and so far only HSPA+, but I’m not complaining.
