Messages getting slowed way down with AT&T SIM card

I did a simulation with a class last week - a "prisoner" exercise" and set up 5 groups. The class had to send messages to the Frontline SMS "switchboard" to communicate with each other. This meant that 20 messages were going out at a time in and out of Frontline. But, it got very slowed down- and I had to quit and restart it everytime I wanted to receive messages.

"Hi Felipe, I hope you are well. I ended up using the SIM card from my AT&T regular plan. I think that the prepaid go phone SIM cards will ONLY work with the gophone itself- so the SIM card is locked in with that device. That is what I understood…"

"Thank you, Flo- yes I did get it to work by emptying the SIM card! But, now I am trying to get it to work with the SIM card from a go-phone and the modem is not recognizing it. I guess that is more a question for Huawai or AT&T? Thanks!"

"Hi Domingo, Thank you for the input. I ended up clearing my SIM card and now it works with my own phone SIM card. However, for my class I was planning to use a go-phone SIM card. When I put it in (and it is charged now with unlimited texting), the…"

"Hi Willow: I'd check to see if AT&T lets send/receive via a regular cell phone with the card you bought Of course you need to have credit in your prepaid card too This can easily be overlooked in all the testing. When you are confident the…"

"Thank you for the ideas! I will let you know what I am able to figure out. One question- what question would I need to ask my provider? I have AT&T, and I am using a go phone pre-paid SIM card."
