Trying to use internet but cannot access with data plan

HI guys.

So I just got the data plan from AT&T. Since the xperia arc is not an AT&T device, it does not have the internet preinstalled. I was told by the person who sold me the phone that I need to download APN manager and I did. But it does not have AT&T internet as one of the options! What do I do now!!???

You can enter the APN Manually.

Go to Settings->Wireless & Networks->Mobile Networks->Access Point Names

Press menu button and add new APN. Google the internet for the APNs for your carrier. I don't know if this will work but try these

APN: wap.cingular
