doesnt show up 4 me after I reboot and installed..

I had this same issue for a while. Here's what i did.
1. Winscp into your phone
2. navigate to var/mobile/library/Carrier Bundle.bundle
3. edit the carrier.plist file
4. insert the following after <dict>:
end product should look like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
save it and reboot phone.
If this doesnt work the first time keep doing it until it pops up. I usually have to do it 2 or 3 times before it takes.

I actually followed another persons post. I used a program called "Iphone Configuration Utility." Then I added the APN through the program, internet2.voicestream.com. Then you install this app on your Iphone, unlockit.co.nz, and now I get the EDGE network.
I have heard people saying you can call T-Mobile and say you want the cheapest internet package and it will still work with EDGE? Is that true? I pay $19.99 right now for the internet alone, hopefully I can make my phone bill less by performing this option. Any ideas?

They did try to give me the run around saying that the only plan that works for the iphone is the 34.99 plan which is BS. I had to talk to four different reps before I got one that would switch my plan to the 9.99 but it DOES work if you're persistant with them.

Is web2go for T-Mobile? Why would they give you the run around if you want to switch to web2go for T-Mobile? Also, what if I went to T-Mobile.com and switched it from their?

My cellular data network isnt showing either after I uploaded a bundle from the other thread. Is there anyway I can get it back, since my phone isnt jailbroken?

If they still arent showing up, repeat or restore with your original ipcc file.
I was originally on a blackberry plan since I had a pearl when I first signed up. I used the bb plan until this month when I started looking into saving a bit on my bill.
I told them the deal, that I was using an iPhone, and they sent me off to their unsuported devices tech support. After talking to several of them (I called numerous times to make sure I was getting the same answer each time) I called to switch to the cheaper web2go plan. Apparently the people on the phones aren't told that the cheaper plans will work with the iPhone so they try to upsell you to the 34.99 plan that they have. At least that's what they kept telling me.
So in the end I ended up with the 9.99 plan but it was a run around and quite frustrating. I'm pleased though with the end result, I'm saving about 25 bucks a month on my phones and that's always a good thing.
Download - 2.47Mbps
Upload - apparently I can't upload, the test never did complete after several attempts.
I'm using the internet2.voicestream.com APN.

I am going to call TMobile and tell them I am swapping phones with my girlfriend. She wants my G1 and I have had so many problems with it that I don't want to deal with it anymore. She has my old phone which is an old Samsung which only works with tzones. This way since I don't have my G1 I want the cheapest internet package which would be $9.99. I would then say i'll call back when I search for a phone I like to upgrade my plan. Boom! That should work, what do you think?

You must be on WiFi because 2.47Mbps is too fast for EDGE.
Yeah just call them and tell them you have a new phone (they'll ask for an IMEI) and you don't need the expensive data plan.

Just log into your t-mobile site, change the phone to Motorola v3, log out, log back in, you should see the option to add unlimited web2go 9.99! That was how i did for my dad iPhone. and the APN should be internet2.voicestream.com, it will take 24-48 hours to activateiPhone 4 32GB. Jailbroken!

That actually says 33Kbps.
I can get up to 180kbps with 5 bars.

I went to the Tmobile site and did everything you said to change to the web2go plan but their only is an option for hotspot for $9.99. I clicked on that and tried to change it but it will say this " We’re sorry, but we're not currently able to complete your request online. If you have questions, or if you’d like to change your plan or services, please call Customer Care at 1-877-453-1304 or dial 611 on your T-Mobile phone." How did you do it online?
