You need to go to settings> general>network>edge> cellular data> in the APN field type in "internet2.voicestream.com" without the quotes. Make sure wifi is off, and try to browse.

If that doesn't work, try "internet3.voicestream.com" without the quotes.

You need a data package on your account to be able to access the internet from your iphone.

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.

Caid.

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!!!

Enabling Edge on Unlocked iPhone


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!
