Daily data plan on iPad 3

I'd like to try using T-Mobile data on my iPad 3 (or "New iPad," silly name) but have had many problems. Mine is the AT&T (GSM) version of the iPad.

 

I ordered a SIM from T-Mo and chopped it to fit the iPad.  When trying to set it up there was the "invalid activation code" issue that many have reported.  I finally got that sorted out after being ping-ponged between different T-Mo support lines and set up the $2 "pay by the day" plan, entering epc.tmobile.com for the APN.

 

The iPad connects to T-Mo's EDGE network and has a signal.  But the web browser will do nothing but direct me to the "My T-Mobile" login screen.

 

I know the iPad isn't locked to AT&T because I've used it on other carriers in Europe just fine (and iPads aren't sold locked anyway). Are there any settings I can use to fix this?

 

Have to say between the "invalid activation code" stuff and now these problems I'm not impressed with T-Mo so far. But I'm willing to keep trying.

 

Thanks for whatever help you can provide.
