    Have you tried the non-legacy one? Legacy doesn't necessarily mean that if the account is old you must use it. You may open one tomorrow and it's configured using legacy.

    No, I haven't, but I will now, should I reboot after the install and report back?

    UPDATE:
    installed settings, rebooted, still no tethering menu

    Could you tell me where in the plist tethering is supposed to be? Cuz "I don't know" isn't good enough for me. If it happens with me, then it'll happen with others. Problem needs to be solved.

    It's not disabled. It's enabled by default. All you need is working internet. What APN have you had on other phones? What hacks have you installed.

    I don't know. You're the first one with this problem.

    I stay away from WinterBoard and MobileSubstrate. They introduce too much instability. MobileSubstrate is used to inject code into running apps. You never know what you get. If you don't use themes, and just installed WinterBoard for the logo, consider uninstalling it and doing it properly.

    I actually do use winterboard for a full on theme ...
    any other ideas?

    internet2 is what I have always had, although I've had to switch it before in certain areas. My edge internet is working, just accessed modmyi.com over edge.

    Mods are:

    pushmod
    activatemms2g
    attachment=for mailto:
    five icon dock
    five-column springboard
    installd (moble installation patch)
    openssh
    mobile substrate
    ikeyex
    Rock app
    sbsettings
    supreme preferences (it's disabled right now tho)
    tonefx
    webviewcontroller
    winterboard

I am hopping BigBoss will accept hosting them. If not, I'll create a repository me self.
    Spooky,

    Would it be possible to write a budle switching app? I know zilch about coding for the iPhone, but if you had the bundles stored on the phone and a small app to switch them it could solve the issue for some people that have that need..... Something like sbsettings except for bundles is what I'm picturing in my head.

    Is that even possible of feesible? Just throwing out an idea.

    Yes. It is possible. Will I write it? No. Volunteers are welcome.

    It looks like the battery drainage issue has something to do with notifications... I was only making it about 5 hours .... I removed statusbridge and the drainage has stopped.... looks like there might be something going on between MMS and Notifications.... if your having the same trouble there is a post here:

    HAHAHA thats cool I can respect that. I personally have no need to change my settings unless my plan changes. Then its a new bundle and back to good.

    Thank you for the answer though, a confirmation that it is at least possible is what I was after.

    ModMyI have agreed to host the debs. Soon, they'll be in Cydia/Icy. You may switch at will whenever you want, but a restart of the phone will be required since we have not yet discovered a decent way to make the phone see the new bundle.

    The IPCC will continue to be linked here since there may be some poor souls with officially unlocked phones, but who do not wish to jailbreak and want to use the phone with T-Mobile USA.

    I just noticed something else interesting. With my 2g using postpaid...when I send a group text...it no longer makes itself a group mms(even though I had a work around). It's nice to have that back,

    Ok, they should appear in Icy/Cydia soon.
    The naming convention is T-Mobile US - <Plan Name>.
    For example, T-Mobile US - Postpaid/Flexpaid.
    If it's not in that format, it's not mine.


    I'm going to take a break. I will not answer questions for a week.

    So I installed this and simply rebooted and it worked. I can receive images clearly now. But in Settings, I no longer see the Cellular Data Network tab. I have Internet Tethering though (that's new, didn't have that before). I can send and receive MMS and go on the Internet using EDGE. But I don't see the settings for it.

    I have a 3G and I'm using 3.0. It is jailbroken and unlocked using ultrasnow.

    And I don't have that colored pink logo either. I just have this plain text one.
