Thread: iPhone with Sidekick Unlimited
12-24-2008, 12:45 AM #1iPhone with Sidekick Unlimited
Hey everyone, I could use some help.
I have an iPhone 2G 2.2 on the Sidekick Unlimited plan. Getting data to work is what is bugging me. I know I cannot access danger's servers, but is there a way to get data working with this plan? I think I read that the EPC apn worked with this plan, however I get sent to the web2go signup page when I use that APN. Am I at a dead end with this plan?
Is there a plan or set of options/addons tmobile offers that I could possibly take advantage of instead of the sidekick plan? I use this iPhone for text messaging and (hopefully) data, but that is all, no voice. Also, prepaid would be required as I am not 18, but then again I could get someone to cosign with me so I guess it's not a huge deal.

just call tm and tell them you want T-ZONE$5.99 month. it will take up to 24 hrs to get hook up on tm end. you just go in to iphone setting,general,network, click on cellular data network and click on apn and install epc.tmobile.com no usename or password.
restart phone. i just did this today to 2 phones works great

The $5.99 t-zones plan has been discontinued. I think you will only have the options of $9.99 or $19.99 web2go or the $34.99 unlimited plan. These all use the epc.tmobile.com APN i think.

The only thing is, is that I already have unlimited internet with the plan I have now. T-mobile won't let me double up, and plus that's redundant to pay for internet twice.

sidekick will not work on iphone. call tm and get the t-zone plan.

there is no more tzone plan....

Can I just get the $34.99 unlimited plan and nothing else and pay ahead or pay as you go?

I'm aware that the sidekick plan won't work with the iPhone. That's why I posted this thread, to see if there were ways around it.
I believe the smart phone plan doesn't provide any text messages, and also, I am on prepay, so I would really like to keep it that way.
I'm so bummed the epc APN was removed from my area. I read that if you had the sidekick plan (or a t-zones plan) you could access that server.

Is that an add-on to a plan, or a plan itself? Cuz I don't have voice thru tmobile, just data/text.

phone will not work with dangers crappy sidekick internet plan. it uses specific servers to allow the sidekick to access the inernet. no way around it. no fix.
youtube works on any web plan now. tzones and web2go, i use tzones and youtube has been working fine ever since epc apn came out.
Um first off your wrong and it does work,if you would like me to prove you wrong i will glady make a video for you when i get my digital camera monday,along with logging into my tmboile account showing you my plan.
btw just tried youtube with the sidekick data works nice to....
anyway here is a screen shot of my account until i get my digital cam back to make a video,as you see i kept my sidekick data,and using it on my 3g no issues.

I see it has been awhile since anyone has posted here, but FYI it is definitely possible to access the sidekick plan on a jailbroken iphone.
In Cydia download ActivateMMS2G
then in your Settings, General, Network, Cellular Data Network
MMS Proxy: 216.155.165.050
MMS Max Message Size: 999999
MMS UA Prof URL:
Camera Phone Picture Messaging Settings
I found out that in order for the settings to work like this you have to enter the MMS settings first, using wap.voicestream.com with no username or pass, for both cellular data and mms apns. then go back into settings and change cellular data apn to hiptop.t-mobile.com , username guest, pass guest
