    lol

    no worries man, you have to start somewhere

    but basically you have to enter your APN. go to settings-general-network-cellular data network

    and add
    epc.tmobile.com to the cellular data apn.

    If that doesn't work, try
    internet2.voicestream.com
    wap.voicestream.com
    internet3.voicestream.com
    The only thing I ask in return for helping, is that you click the thanks button, Thanks!

    I had the same problem.

    it looks like you did the update.

    back up you phone and do a restore.

    do not apply the restore once it is loaded. set it up as a new phone.

    check for updates. more than likely there will be a carrier update. apply that.

    now restore your backup.

    for some reason the carrier updates are not being accepted from just the updates. maybe something left over from the previous os

    No need to restore.

    Just go to cydia and search for "T-mobile US Postpaid/Flexpaid" and download.

    Then go to settings - general - reset - reset network settings.

    Hmm...this may be an issue with the new ultrasn0w on 4.0. They've had these issues with prior releases (specially ones right after a new Firmware comes out) and it happens. However, there may one fix for you. Not only *should* this fix youtube, but it will also enable Push Notifications for you. Follow this easy guide:
