    This is absolutely correct!  I’ve worked with, pleaded and fought with AT&T reps for the past month to no avail.  Until you give them another AT&T device IMEI (e.g. AT&T Samsung Galaxy S2 rocket), their plans simply don’t work with the nexus 4.  They insist to use the imei number of the nexus 4, but after 6 different attempts and apn settings, I don’t believe it will ever work.  Personally, I estimate AT&T is purposefully sabotaging the Nexus 4 to decrease their competition. 
    The Nexus 4 worked exactly as it should, ONLY when an AT&T 4G IMEI is provided to AT&T.  Otherwise, they won’t let the Nexus 4 access the pta APN settings.
    Find (or borrow) one of these numbers first and save yourself a lot of trouble if dealing with heavy handed AT&T.

    There’s one field (“server”) that’s not covered in this APN… what should we use?
