On an unlocked iphone for the T-mobile carrier you need to add the full internet package to use the internet.

The apn is internet2.voicestream.com or internet3.voicestream.com if you have VPN internet.

Wap.voicestream.com may work, but it is not for sure, and might not give you the full internet. Only wap pages which are different than html.

To add this you go to settings>general settings>network>cellular data network or edge and then put the apn in the apn field. Make sure data roaming is turned on, and 3g is turned off.

Do not put in a user name and password, and go back to the main screen. Make sure your wifi is turned all the way off, not just disconnected.

Try to browse. If this fails you may need to reset the network settings. To do this, go to settings>general settings>reset>reset network settings. DO NOT reset anything else or it may re-lock your phone. Then when the phone resets go back and input the apn again, and turn off wifi.

Happy browsing!

OKAY!! If you want to use edge on your unlocked i phone do this: first off, go to settings. Turn OFF wifi (when at home simply turn it back on). Then go back to settings, go to general, hit cellular data network, hit APN. Enter into the APN slot (dont worry about user name and password). Type in internet2.voicestream.com . If you cant find APN (i did this), you most likely downloaded a Cydia app that switched things around. If so, restore. If you want 2.2 software, go to http://www.demonoid.com/files/details/1739645/?show_files=&page=1
follow his instructions explicitly.

Go back to your home screen. Thats it. When wifi is off, you will now run off of the edge network. I personaly subscribe to the smartphone plan so i have unlimited usage and downloads.

Hi there Vegas Diamond (and others who are facing the same problems). I had posted the same query (amar65gupta) an hour ago. Then my curiousity got the better of me and I started exploring the "Edge" problem. And i fiund the solution (atleast it works in my case).

Please go to the EDGE settings page (Settings>General>Network>EDGE settings). It asks for the following information:
APN:
Username:
Password:

My service provider does not require Username and Password and I had to only key in the APN (in my case it is: airtelgprs.com. My service provider, in India, is Airtel).

After one has filled in the required information then switch off the iphone, remove the SIM and then reinsert the SIM and put the phone on. Try it. it might work on your phones as well. it does now on mine. And I am enjoying my iPhone to its full. When the EDGE is activated the "E' on the top left hand corner will 'glow' blue while it is white/grey when the EDGE is not activated.

Hey guys. let me know if it worked on your iphones or not.


p.s: Is it normal that iTunes can be accessed only through Wi-Fi!! Wonder why not through EDGE also)

Not letting you access youtube, or not letting you go online via safari? The youtube issue is a separate issue, but if you really can't get online because the edge network is unavailable, I would try installing the "Boss Prefs" app located in "Installer.app". Once you install Boss Prefs, click on it, and toggle the "Edge" service on and off. Once it comes back on, it might ask you to select your network, ATT, TM, etc.

    You may want to backup your data and do a full restore back to 1.1.3 again. Then, download the latest version of ZiPhone from ziphone.org - it was version 2.4 as of this writing, but he has been updating the program nearly every day.

    There is a lot of useful info on his blog (same website above). Read through the latest few posts before running ZiPhone. His utility will get you jailbroken and unlocked again, and should get your edge service working again. I think the restore and re-jb is the best option at this point.

How to unlock iPhone 3gs 32 gb BB 05.16.08 without upgrading or downgrading baseband


Unlocking the iphone will accept the SIM card of any GSM carrier. This is entirely different than a jailbreak though a jailbreak is required for the current unlocks to take effect. Lot of software and freeware are available for downloading which unlock in minutes. What you will need to do is first find out your mobile phone's IMEI number. You can find this by typing in *#06# and then hitting the enter or send key on your Iphone . This number is completely unique to your phone and will be used to generate or calculate an unlock code for your iphone . Keep in mind this only works with GSM or SIM based phones and not CDMA ones. Get the unlock code here
Once you have your iphone unlock code, you can follow this simple steps in this site below to full unlock your mobile without vain : Mobile Unlock Solutions The Ultimate Website For Mobile Phone Unlocking

Is my iphone blocked ?


Is your sim card csm or cdma? I'm not sure if the iphone can handle both, but I know it works with GSM.

If you have a gsm sim card, then you just need to unlock it. Of course, Apple won't let certain carriers use their phones legally. So you have to unlock it. I don't remember the exact process, but there's a good program to help you through it step by step.

Go to this site and read up before trying to do anything technical with your phone (link)wikee.iphwn.org

There's a lot of informtion there, so make sure to read up to find what's best for you. You'll need to know the firmware your phone is using 1.1.4 to 2.2 you need to know. The site I posted should have all the info for you.

Again, if your sim card is gsm, it should be no problem to use your sim.

Alright, good luck.

Enabling Edge


You need either GPRS enabled with your SIM card or WI-Fi enabled.
For GPRS enabling, go to Settings ->Network->EDGE->APN -type your SIM Card GPRS site address, ask your SIM provider for the details. Username-put your phone number with country code and Password-put what is there for your SIM.

For Wi-Fi enabling, go to Settings -> Wi-Fi-set it to ON and it would automatically search for nearby connections. If you find one unlocked, just select that and start using internet via SAFARI!!!
