^^ Yes --- and it works. I traveled back east last month and noticed my T-Mobile carrier changing to something else many times . And my phone still worked (voice and data) ..... and I was not charged extra. I even used AT&T a couple times. The era of 'roaming charges' has ended!!.
Be cautioned. This applies to US only and your individual plan. If you take your T-Mobile phone to another country and leave 'roaming' enabled, you just might end up with a huge phone bill!! How do you avoid this? Never leave your T-Mobile SIM in the phone when traveling overseas. For me, I always buy a local SIM (very cheap) for each country, send an SMS to work/friends with my new number, and tell them to 'call me!!!" (hahaha). There's always a cheap way to call 'from US to xxx' then to call 'to USA from xxx'. Another great note for overseas travelers: WiFi is your friend. Use fring, or siphone, or Skype, (expensive), or a hundred others and use VoIP for out-going calls outside of your local country.

Awesome, thanks for the help! I really appreciate it. I will post back with my thoughts once my number has been fully transferred over and my web access has been transferred.
I just wanted to post an update. Everything seems to have transferred, texts are working great and quick too! I can receive picture messages no problem, it's nice and fast.
Now, I CAN send picture messages but it takes a little while. I'm not sure if this is normal or if I need another T-Mobile cydia package.

Oh I see, does T Mobile not have 3G though? Or am I confused?

Just an update regarding how this works. Turns out that my web access wasn't working because I was on the default $10 data plan which is for non-smart phones. I switched it over to the $20 data plan for smart phones and now everything is working perfectly.

Oh damn, really? How can I uninstall my current carrier bundle?
05-03-2010, 11:44 AM #1250
Just go to cydia, manage, packages, select the bundle and click uninstall. Then go back to cydia and search for "Legacy" - select the first result. You have to do this once you get the $10 plan back though.If I helped you out, please use the Thanks button ------------------------->

I have a 2g on 3.1.2 and i have mms set up. I have native mms for the camera icon. i have the correct carrier bundle. my network settings are set just like t-mobile instructed. but i can only send messages. i can even send myself mms and it comes through just fine. however, i cannot receive mms from anyone else. i get the, "The media content was not included due to a picture resolution or message size restriction" message. Can anyone help me please?

ok so its not a problem but more of a general question. on my t-mobile 3g capable phone, i get a little 3g icon. but on my unlocked iphone 3g, even on full signal strength i get an E icon. is it just saying E but getting 3g? or only gettig E

You won't be able to get 3G on T-mobile, no matter what unlock method/phone you have. All you get is EdgeIf I helped you out, please use the Thanks button ------------------------->

They can, however, be installed on jailbroken phones. Read the README.txt in the "doc" folder and watch the screencast bellow.Whichever method you choose, always Reset Network Settings after installation:
- Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings -> Reset Network Settings

05-12-2010, 02:56 PM #1255Improved MMS Resolution on carrier other than TMobile?
Do these carrier bundles work on international carriers? I have iPhone 2G with MMS enabled, but the picture quality is bad/fuzzy. I have been searching and searching on how to improve picture quality, but all the fixes I see refer to TMobile, can someone tell me how to fix picture quality for a carrier other than TMobile?

05-14-2010, 08:54 PM #1260Tethering Visible, but does not work on computer
Bundle Used: T-Mobile US - Prepaid/Postpaid
Voice Plan: Anytime 700
Data Plan: T-Zones
SMS: Pay per message
Time with T-Mobile: 10 years
Last Plan Change: 2 years ago
Problem: MMS works fine. Tethering is visible on the phone and I can turn it on. It connects to the computer and looks like it is working on the iphone, but the network connections on the computer show local access only...no internet. I have tried all of the profiles and the different APNs with no success. I am currently on the Postpaid/Flexpaid bundle.
Anyone else seen this problem or have a solution? I was hoping someone had success using a 2G for tethering. Thanks.
