iPhone 3.0 update

Yesterday I upgraded my iPhone to v3.0 software. It went pretty smoothly, with one minor problem. After the upgrade, when trying to browse the web over the 3G connection, I would get the following error: "Could not activate cellular data network: You are not subscribed to a cellular data service".

I dropped the SIM back in my old Blackjack and the internet worked fine, so that wasn't the problem. Then I came along this post. It seems that ATT really wants you to be on the official "iPhone Data Plan" instead of their generic data service. Since I have no intention of having my account updated, likely increasing my rate, I went through the steps on that page to get back up and running. It's now working w/o any issues. Finally, copy & paste on a phone. It's sad to get excited about something so basic.
