All I did was add "epc.tmobile.com" as my Cellular Date APN. I think I used one of these tutorials:
The Happy Coder Blog Archive t-zones (a.k.a. $5.99 Internet access) on the iPhone

Hey JD914, Good lookin out.
I have a question does your t-zone hack work 2g w/2.0.2
07-28-2009, 01:16 PM #323
If you hvae a 2G and you are on 3.0FW then you can no longer see the APN setting under SETTINGS>GENERAL>NETWORKING. The 3.0FW took that out.
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.
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.

Yes but that is not working for everyone. Dont know why but some, even me, I could not get the APN settings to show with out an MMS bundle I found.

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.
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.????

I got the 9.99 plan to work on my 2g iphone
3.0 jailbroken all that blah blah
I had the Tmolbile us carrier package but I deleted it cause it hid my APN
and it worked! I am in Vancouver, WA btw if that matters I hear different places use different APNs
08-10-2009, 11:52 AM #329
not sure what the deal is but my 2g with 3.0 firmware has the APN setting menu and i did not have to download anything???

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 knowThanks 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.
08-26-2009, 10:52 AM #334epc.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.

does this work for 3.0 fw yet?
Is there a hack for 3.0 FW? I had this w/ 1.1.4 but upgraded to 3.0
Can someone please provide a link if so. I can't find the app on cydia.
09-29-2009, 09:51 PM #336
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
Username and password: leave blank
MMS Proxy: 188.8.131.52:8080
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
