    LATEST UPDATE: I reset my network settings through Settings>General>Reset, installed the PostPaid .ipcc from the OP of this thread, changed my data APN to epc.tmobile.com but kept the wap.voicestream.com APN for MMS and voila! full quality pics!
    I tip my hat to all who have worked on this issue!

    I am assuming you are actually doing this in the cmd prompt when you actually do it on the run prompt. Start > Run > "\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe" /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1"

    That's it

    Chnage File Type from IPSW to ipcc then you should see it when you did the shift + update

    The zip file containes 4 ipcc files inside it, so extract the zip file into a folder or wherever you can find it then in itunes shift + update then navigate to that folder with the ipcc files and change file type to ipcc and they should show up in the window for you to select and choose the one you need. Post Paid is for normal T-Mobile Plans and Pre-Paid is of course pre paid plans as I asked that question earlier

    Thanks for the quick reply. I uploaded the file. Now, I dont have the capability to send MMS anymore. Before I did. I went into settings>Network and all is gone. I have tried to upload the program again. No dice. Any help?

    Scratch That. We are good to go. Wondering why my T-Mobile is grey though and not the pink/grey. Any help?

    Ok, all is good w/the MMS feature. My question to you is, Im getting the monochrome T-mobile on my springboard. How do I get the color logo? Ive downloaded the US Postpaid Tmobile Logo file..

    Any help would be great

    Can you please explain how you were able to change it to epc.tmobile.com without losing the MMS APN? Everytime I try to change one or the other MMS APN disappears. Thanks!

    Captain. All you need to do is go into settings. Make the changes that you need to make w/ your APN, MMS etc, back out of your settings and immeditely reboot. Once you reboot, the settings will stick.

    I presume you know how to USE VPN since you have it on your account. I'd appreciate if you list all VPN settings you use so I can create a VPN bundle.

    Check if you have Push Mail enabled. Changed it to fetch every 15 minutes or one hour. There is a bug in 3.0 in Push Mail. It will rape your battery like an Alabama inbred.

    Read the first post carefully and read the filenames. You'll figure it out.

    That's what I want to figure out. I think postpaid. Try postpaid and let me know.
    Also check the numbers under Preferences > Phone > T-Mobile Services.

    You shouldn't have to. Delete Cydia hacks, and network profiles you may have installed before this carrier bundle. They conflict or override. Check Preferences > General > Profile if you have any.

    All the VPN settings can be populated by the carrier bundle. If you had some default settings on your previous PDA, I'd appreciate if you list them. So, we can create a bundle for those that use VPN with more than internet3 apn.

    Are there any Sidekick plan users? That also requires a special carrier bundle. I hope T-Mobile get their **** together and stop using different servers for each account type. This is ridiculous.
    There is no guarantee that I can get your plan to work. Your data is sent through Danger servers. But, I can try.

    the vpn settings are on the tmo servers.
    Which APN should an application use? Internet 2 and Internet 3 (VPN)
    Response:
    Important Note: This article applies to legacy data plans. Though some users will still have access to these Access Point Names (APN), it is a best practice to use epc.tmobile.com for internet access.End

    The main difference between these 2 types of service is the IP Address which is assigned when the application requests a GPRS/EDGE connection.

    T-Mobile Internet Service
    1. Provides a private IP address.
    2. Allows general HTML web browsing and e-mail usage
    3. May not allow access to secure Web sites that require IP authentication
    4. Allows 'Phone as Modem' functionality
    5. Uses the APN: internet2.voicestream.com

    T-Mobile VPN Service
    1. Provides the a public IP address.
    2. Allows general HTML browsing and e-mail usage
    3. Allows access to secure sites that require IP authentication
    4. May be required to access secure company virtual private networks
    5. Allows 'Phone as Modem' functionality.
    6. Uses the APN: internet3.voicestream.com

    Due to a limited number of available public IP addresses, most data plans default to T-Mobile Internet.

    Here's settings I found on T-Mobile's Wireless Data Configurator Website for T-Mobile t-zones, T-MobileWeb, MMS, and T-Mobile Internet. This tutorial is specifically designed for the T-Mobile MDA, but it should work on other (unlocked) Windows Mobile 5.0 Phone Edition devices as well.

    T-Mobile t-zones and T-MobileWeb:

    Want to browse Web sites, check the weather, and get directions on your phone? Use these settings to set up Internet access on your phone using t-zones and T-MobileWeb. You can then further configure your device using My T-Mobile to take advantage of all the additional features that t-zones provides.

    EDIT: You can also try this before trying setting up your settings manually follow this link to see what cab. you need to download and install and full instructions.

    Due to a limited number of available public IP addresses, most data plans default to T-Mobile Internet.
    So, Preferences > Network > VPN has nothing to do with T-Mobile? No t-mobile servers must be input in L2TP or PPTP or IPSec tabs as well as Proxy at the bottom?
