09-15-2009, 11:47 AM #1tmobile unlimited web $9.99 plan and iphone?
im running 3.0 on my iphone 3G, i have tmonkey and i have the $9.99 unlimited web plan. I have tried every apn on the web and nothing has worked. Does anyone have a proven way of connecting or is it a dead issue?
just want to know because my data plan is free for 30 days and i want to cancel if it is FOR SURE not going to work

That's weird. Maybe they're blocking all new iPhoners on that plan? I have the 19.99 web2go data/msging and it still works..
Chances are if it's not working within a day of it being added on that it will never work. You might be SOL and have to pay for the 24.99 web.

browsed to this thread, went to the tmobile website. i saw that it had 19.99 unlimited text + web for otherphone or smartphones.
i called up tmobile. asked them to verify what plan i was using. the rep said, you are currently on the g1 plan for 35$ with unl text n email. i said, alright. can you remove that off my plan and add unlimited web2go internet and text?
after 30 mins of arguing, and him telling me "i guarantee it wont work. you will only get text with that plan."
i politely said,"ok, can you do it anyways and if it doesnt work, ill call back?"
he goes, "well why dont you get the 14.99 text and the 9.99 web"
i go, "no thanks. add what i want please."
so finally, he goes "fine."
switched my plan to 19.99 unlimited web2go 2 w/ unlimited texting.
and guess what...
after 2 phone cycles, same settings as my g1. it works. also called back to make sure the rep added the correct plan and was still active. i just saved $15 a month. thanks modmyi!

If I had 3G Unrestrictor on my 2G iPhone (3.1 jb & unlock yay!) and had a $9.99 unlimited web plan, would it still cost me the fee of $0.01 per kilobyte for data being used by 3G Unrestrictor? Technically, it is a "web" plan, and using data can be under the category, "web". Right..?

What? Web2go is just a name for their data plans. ALL Data is unlimited. Goodluck getting it to work however.. I haven't heard of much success lately.

so does all this mean that "new subscribers" to the unlimited $9.99 plan cannot use the web??
what are the settings under data networks are you guys using that enable you to use the 9.99 plan???
please let me know

@thug2md bro were all here to help. It's the fact that ever other day anouther thread pops ups asking for these setting. I'm sure if look around these threads you will find the Ansewer that was already ansewered.
I'll try (later on a PC not this iPhone ) to get ya some SS or links but in mean time look around.

ok hope this helps. a bit tired this weekend.
go to your setting and follow the screen shots. i'll edit them if needed.
the APN are
wap.voicestream.com ----- 5.99 tzones
internet2.voicestream.com -- web2go/smartphone data plan
internet3.voicestream.com -- web2go/smartphone data plan
epic.voicestream.com -- ??? if none of the above work
after you check your APN just TAP "network" to go back.
please note each screen shot is in "step" order so check each step. after step 4 just RESET your phone. to reset your phone hold the Home + top button for 5 seconds and "slide to power off". Turn it back on.
