    Default Anyone with t-zones READ THIS
    Does anyone have this problem: their tzones works but I've noticed for example if the weather or stocks takes to long to update, I exit and try again and then it works right away. Or youtube won't work the first time, but the second time it always works. Also if weather or stock for example doesn't work, go to safari and load a page, then go back to weather and it works instantly. Or if safari doesn't work, refresh and it works again. It's almost as if you wake up edge and everything keeps working until you are done with your internet session. BUT if the iphone has been in standby for at least 20minutes, when you try weather or internet you must try twice like mentioned above to get everything working again. This means if you have it check email automatically and you haven't woken up edge for a while, it won't retrieve the new email. I've tried all the tzones methods with same results. Is the iphone defective or do others have the same symptoms?

    Yes this happens to me too and I am incredibly annoyed by it, just about ready to upgrade to the $19.99 plan. I have been researching but I haven't found anyone else who has noticed this problem and been able to fix it. It also seems like lots of people either have this problem but don't notice, or they don't have the problem at all and I am jealous.

    To be honest, before I had this t zones hack, I had the $19.99 internet plan, and the same happens to me on both. I think its just the t mobile service itself, and not that t zones hack.

    Default Use this APN with TZones - epc.tmobile.com
    Hey Everyone,

    I too had the same problem. Tzones was working great, except I had to refresh Safari most of the time to get the pages to load. I was using the wap.voicestream.com APN, but then I read about the APN for prepaid folks, epc.tmobile.com. If you're paying for Tzones, use epc.tmobile.com as your APN and you'll never get those pesky HTTP ERROR $CODE$ pages again!

    I did notice that on my phone too. I figured I just reinstall the 2.1 firmware again and hopefully all those annoying things will go away.

    Lately, my MxTube will fail when its like half way, which it didn't use to do that.

    Its starting to get annoying. I'm under the epc.tmobile.com APN with t-zones.

    Hello,

    I've been using the epc.tmobile.com as my APN it's been working fine and a lil faster. I've been using it for a while now....and I wake up this morning and it's not working any more. I get a message stating this mesg. your plan does not support this feature. Do you think tmobile finally caught on to what was going on? Also I'm still on the 1.1.4 software on my 2g phone....Are you having the same problem?
