    For the rest that can edit the APN all you have to do is put epc.tmobile.com in the APN blank.

    If you dont have the APN setting under SETTINGS>GENERAL>NETWORKING and you are NOT on 3.0FW then you can goto cydia and DL the APN editing bundle. Which will show your APN settings if they are not already there.

    If you are on 3.0FW then the above will not work from what I have seen and heard.

    Now I do know for sure that if you are on a 2G 3.0FW jailbroken/unlocked and T-Zones then this will give you internet and MMS messaging.
    http://www.modmyi.com/forums/t-mobil...er-bundle.html

    If I were you I would read the first page and then go to the last 3 or 4 pages. The bundles are also available on Cydia under Tweaks. The first one you come to works on T-Zones and gives you MMS. Look for "T-Mobile US - Postpaid/Flexpay"

    If you are not jailbroken then you can inst a ipcc bundle with iTunes. I think..???? Y'all just need to read. But the above is the info you need.

    MAKE SURE YOU BACK UP YOUR PHONE BEFORE TRYING ANYTHING....

    I do have a 2G on 3.0 firmware, but I think I had to install a hack that allowed the APN to be edited.

    There is another post on this here in the forum. But I dont think the web2go works for internet. Tmo figured out what everyone was doing so they made so future could not do it.

    I'll see if I can find that post. As this one says its for T-Zones.

It worked for about 5 minutes before I got the message about the device compatability. So I'm back on internet2, and it's working fine. Any other word on this?
    Now the above quote is from April so cant tell you it will for sure work with 3.0, you need to do research.

    If you remove the bundle you downloaded from Cydia it will bring back your APN edit.

    Are you trying to get MMS?

    From what I was told by a Tmo PDA tech is that the epc is both wap and the internet2. BUT I have the blackberry plan and can not use the epc. Figure its a different server and I am not registered with it.????

    Does anyone know if the 5.99 plan still exist? Because I was told by someone they cut off this service permanently. Anyways, I'm on the 9.99 web2go but saving a few bucks wouldn't hurt.

    Nope been gone almost a year. Believe me I accidentally changed to the 19.99 total internet last year and wish I didn't. The same day when I called to switch back they told me it was gone.

    After being on hold with a couple techs and a manager for almost an hour tryin to get it back they said no after the computer wouldn't let them.

    Wish I just left it alone. 5.99 is the best internet plan in town hands down.

    Cherish it if you still have it bc those extra 14.00 a month add up @ the end of the year

    Here's something interesting my corporate discount site under the cell phone part the third party group handling the tmoible discounts which i'm sure is nextjump most likely says that web plans start at $5.99 this is as of today I was adding a phone line for my dad's account and decided to see what the offers are since many of the corporate rate plans are the same on these sites I'm having lunch with him tomorrow and we're going to log into his site which requires him actually getting a log on and learning what the site is but that's a whole other thing
    so if any of you have these sites I'd recommend checking that out.
    I'm flying out of town at 6:00 a.m. Wednesday morning so I may not have time to call which I think is the way to do it.
    But figured what the heck worth a look right let me know
    Thanks to all of you @ Modmyi for all of the help you've provided

    These settings are not working as of I am writing this in NY. TMoile tracked the imeis and figured out that we are using iphones and they blocked these imeis. So we are screwed by the greedy company. TMobile= you are loosing more and more customers. If someone has to pay you 30 for the internet then why not go to att. I wish I would have stayed with att. after being customer for 6 years with them I was getting good discount. I switched to tmobile bcoz they has cheaper plans but not anymore.

    Default epc.tmobile.com
    I don't know if anyone has noticed this yet. Like the prepaid sk plan where web was cut off but email still works, email continues to work on epc.tmobile.com. On a lark I changed the apn from internet2.voicestream.com to see what happened.

    I just switched last week to the flexpay myfaves family plan w/9.99 web2go+4.99 text because I had a feeling t-mobile would do this. I gave up my number and got a new one because I did not want to be locked into a contract and now it turns out that wisdom was correct.

    go to settings then messages go to network in the apn put epc.tmobile.com user name and password leave that blank and if you want to send pictures messages this is what you put in SETTINGS FOR TMOBILE MMS

    APN: wap.voicestream.com
    Username and password: leave blank
    MMSC: 216.155.174.84/servlets/mms
    MMS Proxy: 216.155.165.50:8080

    you have to reboot your iphone then go to settings messages and turn on mms messaging

    you could send pictures right away but it might take 1 hour to recieve pictures but when i did it it took about 15 minutes

    When I read this I wanna say, "Really?" First off you're upset that a T-Zones package isn't giving your iphone full internet access. T-Zones was never meant to provide full internet to any device, thats why it's called a "proxy hack," as in, something that isn't supposed to work. But it did/does because the iPhone doesn't have a wap deck and epc.tmobile.com doesn't go through a proxy. You should be happy that it worked for you while it did, and if you -really- liked AT&T you shouldn't have price shopped it after 6 years. I'm sorry but the consumer is not always right (my personal stance not T-mobiles); and an unlimited data package is still cheaper at t-mobile that at AT&T.
    Yes I work at T-Mobiles Tier 3 Data Support Department and no you can't have my Rep ID.

    Good! stay loyal to TMobile. Maybe you will get a Noble price for being 3rd tier support at TMobile.

    Obviously you've misunderstood me. I don't care about the hack, i've seen it several times and not changed it. But to blame a company for fixing something that should have never worked in the first place is ridiculous.
