    No. The iPhone can't use the bands that Tmo uses.

    Which is why (if you'd search) you'd read how many times I've said that it's not worth paying $20 for data when others get 3G speed and you don't. You need $9.99 web2go.

    I saw above the 5.99 hack. Is that another type of program they offered and we just hack into it with the instruction that given?

    The 5.99 hack is no longer needed, but you can't get the t-zones plan anymore. You have to get web2go. Yes, you can do it by calling the way you mentioned, but it's easier if you log in to mytmobile.com and contact CS through chat and request it.

    You don't even need to call them or chat to customer service. I just added it as a service on my phone through their website and they gave me the first month free.

    I got the web2go plan for my samsung behold phone with one month plan, but when I use the net it displayed that I can't use this plan, I need to update. I called customer service and they said everything is a go on their side and I should wait for 4-5 days for tmobile to make the adjustment, even though I got a email, saying everything has been change. This was last friday. Am I been taking for a ride to get back on the high cost plan, which not going to happen. Any suggestion/

    Go to Settings, General, Network, Cellular Data Settings and enter "internet2.voicestream.com" in the APN, leave user& password blank. Then go back and make sure Data Roaming is ON and 3G is OFF

    is this for the iphone or samsung? I have not move my sims card to the iphone, because I thought I had to get the services working on the samsung first, before I could get thewebtogo on my Iphone. Is this correct?

    If this is for my iphone, I went to Go to Settings, General, Network. When I get to the network page I see listed is , enable 3g ( it off), cellular data ( it's on) Data roaming ( it's on) internet tethering ( it's off) VPN ( not connected) and wi-fi( has my password). There is no no APN for me to enter the above info. Is VPN the area that should receive this info.

    On the VPN page it shows LTTP , PPTP, IPSEC.

    The L2TP is highlighted in blue. Below it is
    description ( requiered)
    server ( required)
    account ( required)
    RSA SecurlD (off)
    Password (off)
    secret ( blank)
    send all traffic (on)

    on the sansung , I see network, but it just let me choose tmobile or att. So I asume were talking about the phone and I need to get my sim card to it. Thanks for taking time to help me.

    Are you on iOS 4? You have to restore and re-jailbreak using redsn0w b5-5 as this will let you edit your APN settings. There's no other way around it

    Have not been back with update. Apparently I was at home when I got that fast internet result. This was the result of my iphone connected to my verizon modem wirelessly. DUH! So now I get can't open the page by safari.

    Ok, before I do this restore of red snow suggested by adp: " You have to restore and re-jailbreak using redsn0w b5-5 as this will let you edit your APN settings. There's no other way around it"

    Did you mean VPN instead of APN? i see VPN in my networking section. If you mean VPN , which tab do I choose, L2TP, PPTP, IPSec?

    Also my data roaming is off, should it be on?

    Austin

    ok. Ihad to go back into cydia to downloads some more packages and update chages. This created the apn info under cellular data. Do I add anything into MMS and tethering?

    i found the apn after i completed downloading some more bundles features. type in internet2.voicestream.com, nothing in the username and password. cellular data on, data roaming on, internet tethering off, 3g off.when I launch google search for apple. i got subcriptyion upgrade required. your current plan is not compatible with this device. Please click here to veiw plan option. the link that this message is on: m.web2go.com/dsb/upgraderrequired/...

    Is there something else I can do?

    I found out I mispell one letter for the internet2 code. Now ir works fine. Thanks for your help.
