    Default Edge w/ T-Mobile Unlimited Plan - 1.1.2
    First, I should state that I have used the search tool to try and find a resolution but there are too many conflicting instructions.

    I am trying to get Edge working on my 1.1.2 OTB jailbroken, activated and sim (stealthsim) unlocked. My phone and texts both work. Edge does not. I have the sidekick unlimited internet plan. Someone already gave me the incorrect advice in another forum instructing me to to do the proxy hack, but it was the one for the T-Zones, not the Unlimited plan.

    So before I screw my phone up, I wanted to see if you guys can educate me.

    Thanks

    It is currently wap.voicestream.com. I have the login and pw blank and it does not work. I also tried using "guest" but that didn't work and I heard that was only for T-Zone subscribers. Someone suggested trying the internet2.voicestream.com APN also which I tried and that also failed.

    I know the sidekick one has different one. If you call t-mobile and ask what the apn should be they will tell you. they helped me with mine.

    Cool. I will give them a call tonight. I had been hesitating to call them since the Iphone isn't a product of their's. Are there any other questions besides the APN that I should be asking about? Also, will the fact that I placed the proxy file inside the phone and changed the pref.plst play be factor?

    Thanks

    just make a simple switch from sidekick unlimited to total internet acess, they are both 19.99 and internet2.voicesteam.com will work fine. Yo can do this easiely by longging onto mytmobile and just change your cell phone that comes up next to your number which should right now iam guessing be a sidekick, and change it to like a Palmtreo..then go to plans and services and uncheck sidekick unlimited and check total internet and submit it

    From what i've seen on the forums is that the sidekick plan won't work with the iPhone but you can call Tmobile and double check. They will do what they can to help you with setting up the iPhone. they realize that a lot of Tmobile users use the iPhone so don't worry about that. but like djspoilz said, just switch to the total internet plan. same price, AND you can use tmobile hotspots for free!

    i want to get the sidekick data plan because its a separate data plan NOT an addon like the T-Mobile Total Internet is. Well you can get T-Mobile Total Internet but its $40 and Sidekick Data plan is $30. I would like the sidekick. If anyone gets this working please reply to me.

    @ djspoilz & gavakie

    You were right. I called them and they were VERY helpful. They said you have to switch to Total Internet which was the same price. Only thing though was there was no unlimited text. I had to add a 400 text for $4.99. But it's worth it for me overall since a similiar package through at&t would cost me almost $30 more a month.

    The tech there just had me put in internet2.voicestream.com in the APN field and that was it.

    Thanks again guys.

    if you don't use the youtube app often, i suggest going with the tzones proxy hack and 5.99 tzones data plan. i was on the 19.99 internet plan and the only difference was the search function in the youtube app actually worked. now it doesn't. but i saved 14bux a month and now i can add unlimited text for only a dlr more. so unlimited data+unlimited text for 21bux a month, add that with my mobile plan and for 61dlrs a month i get 600 any time minutes, unlimited nghts n weekends, unlimited text and data, on a iphone.

    if you enjoy the search feature on the youtube app then the xtra 14dlrs a month is for you. if you don't mind using other apps like tinytube.net then saving 14dlrs a month feels great

    calbuild, the proxy hack isn't necessary if ur not using tzones. if ur using the tmobile unlimited data plan you need to use internet2.voicestream.com vpn

    if u wanna save money, use the 5.99 tmobile web/tzones option and use the tzones proxy hack via installer.

    you are absolutley correct
    my bad
    it is working....
    and i dint type "vpn" is that really part of the address?
    and i might not have known about the . after the 2 either ha
    that might explain why it didnt work
    im probably running on the Tzone hack
    what is the difference? faster? flash? ha, no but really other than that
    what am i missing?
    faster?

    only thing your missing is, if you like using youtube you should stay on the internet2.voicestream.com and pay 19.99 a month.

    if you don't use youtube often, you can use tmobile-web or tzones and its only 5.99 a month so you save 14dollars a month. jus no youtube search function. i learned to live without it.

    yah, if your using the 19.99 data plan you need to use internet2.voicestream.com and you need to remove that proxy.

    to do this go to settings>general>reset>reset network settings

    this should re-create ur original settings, reboot then re-input the internet2.voicestream.com in your edge settings, no need for vpn or whatever.

    then youtube should work again, you do not need to be on wifi when your surfing the web, thats what edge is for. now you should be good to go

    Been having a few hiccups with edge since I got in working last night. I haven't been able to get onto yahoo yet. Sometimes I get the "server not responding" message. I still haven't removed the proxy.pac file yet. I did do the the rest networks settings though. Any thing else I am missing?

    Thanks
