    Default HELP HELP HELP!!! H2O APN Settings
    I just got my sister in law and Unlocked and jailbroken Iphone 3GS on 4.2.1 and I put it on H2O's unlimited talk,text,MMS and 50MB web plan. I had her add the [no war3z please] repo and download the MMS and thethering fix. She then shut off and turned back. The Cellular Data Network Tab was not visible. It just allows here to turn on and off. What do I need to do to get this to work without actually going into the iphone files and change plist because she is 1500 miles away and not that familiar with the iphone. Does it make a difference if she sets up the tethering?

    She also asked me if the square app she uses to run credit cards is using the internet or not becase she only has 50mb a month.

    ALL of your help is greatly appreciated

    Thank You

    Yes, the Square app will use data when she is not on wifi, so that may be an issue with the limited data on the H2O plan. I do not know how much dat the app uses, only that it does require data (authentication of CC numbers, 'depositing' into accounts, etc).

    As for the no 'cellular data tab' or no tethering issue, see if resetting network settings will help (Settings-->General-->Reset-->Reset Network Settings). If not, than it probably means the programs didn't install correctly or work with the firmware (IMHO, avoid using anything from the xs... repo, since you can't be 100% certain the [potentially cracked] tweak/app is compatible with the firmware on her device). If the tweak is compatible with the firmware, then it might to be reinstalled and/or a restore and rejailbreak might be necessary.

    ADDENDUM: Can you find out what her device says in the About screen (Settings-->General-->About) regarding 'Carrier?' If it says 'Unknown' or something along the lines of unavailable, then there's a problem that can't really be fixed without restoring the phone.

    If you don't want to rejailbreak the phone and only need data (not MMS or tethering), then you can grab the iPhone Configuration Utility and create a 'Profile'/mobileconfig that should work on her device. The APN is 'att.mvno' (no quotes) and you'll have to search online for H2O's proxy info (I don't know it off hand and have no means/time to search extensively right now). Once the mobileconfig is made, then send the file to her email, have her open it and install.

    my phone is not AT&T phone but Canadian Rogers phone, that's why i need the Gevey sim.
    i have already installed My3G a while ago but that does not help.
    any other ideas? doyou think i still need to take out the Gevey sim and try without? but the phoe won't work for sure...

    Yes i can tether with no problem with this plan without any text message!!!

    Buddy with h2o you don't need the gevey because h2o it's uses AT&T network maybe that's why you have the issue

    The iPhone in question is locked to Rogers, not AT&T.

    Also, that repo in the OP? NO. Thanks!

    Default iphone 4 h20 with gevey
    the reason that he needs a gevey sim in order for the h2o to work is because his iphone is not from the u.s even if he used a att simcard with it he would still need a gevey i have the same type of iphone. also i need to know how to make facetime work while using the gevey sim my 3g doesnt work there has to be some way to make it work.
