    Default No edge on 3G 2.2.1
    Hey guys, i bought my wife an iphone 3g, had the gevey turbo sim and all was great. About 2 weeks later we noticed the edge icon was not there. I searched the web and found a few posts on how to reset the network settings, then add the apn epc.tmobile.com but it still does not work and i have tried this multiple times!

    I finally decided to buy 2 more gevey turbo sims to see if this would fix my problem and what do ya know, it worked!!
    Wife was happy, all is great and i got special attention.

    Fast forward a week later, the same issue, no more edge, pissed off wife. I switched out the gevey sim again and edge started to work for another week and then stops, no more edge.

    Has anyone else run into this same problem? Any fixes?

    thanks in advance guys!!

    My mom has had this issue on hers. Quickest fix is to pop the sim card out, put it in a legit tmobile phone make a call, and put it back in the iphone. Good to go. I did the same thing thinking the damn chip was bad so I bought a new one, but this def. fixes the issue.

    Good luck.

    im going to give that a try, i read some posts about putting the sim into another phone that has edge working so i put her sim into my iphone, then back into her iphone and still nothing. But i never stopped to think i should put it into her dash?! Im going to try that when i get home and see how it works, thanks for the suggestion!!
