    Default How to set up with Costa Rica internet?
    I just paid to get internet access on my unlocked iphone from ICE, Costa Rica's phone network but I don't know how to connect. Is this even possible?

    First I go to Network settings, then EDGE, then I enter "icecelular" , then guest, guest. But it still says I need to set up the L2TP VPN info. I don't know what to put here. It keeps saying that it can't connect to my server. The only other thing I can see to put here is http://wap.google.com which is what I found on ICE's website, thanks for you help!

    Type 'icecelular' in the APN line, 'guest' for username and 'guest' for password

    Yes, this is what I've done, but then how do I connect? Once I do this I'm back at the Network settings where VPN says "not configured." I click the "on" switch next to VPN and it brings up the settings, "Server" Account RSA SecureID, etc.... What should I enter here? Thanks!

    No. You do not touch the VPN settings. Make sure they are all blank!

    You put this info under 'EDGE'

    Yes, the VPN settings are blank but I am still not connected. Once I enter the Edge settings there is no option to connect, just the option to go back to the Network settings. Must I turn on data roaming? How exactly do I connect?

    Input the edge settings, then , press 'network' then press the home button. open safari and it should connect. You don't connect to edge, since it is 'always on'

    Thanks for the advice, but I still couldn't get it to work. I took it to a cell phone store and they did something to it to make it work! Thanks anyway.
