    same here...but i found something out that FACETIME has something to do with

    EDGE and MMS not working...

    if you enable FACETIME...edge and mms will work but you will incur international txt charges..

    but if you disable it...neither edge nor mms will work.

    someone please find a fix!!!!!

    same here. it cuts out, then comes back and then out. really bizarre.

    I wonder if its because we cut our sim cards.. and maybe its having some sort of a bad connection issue? for example metal of the sim card, touching the metal sim tray.. i dont know i'm just throwing stuff out there. this issue is really annoying...

    I got a temp fix... Maybe. Take out the sim card with the cell on... Put it back in. Wait till it finds t-mobile, then try it. Worked for me. My apn is: epc.tmobile.com. Face time is off...

    Try it.

    right now its working for me.. i'll try your method (boostinfd) when/if it cuts out.

    here is something else i did -- went to cydia, added sinfuliphonerepo dot com, downloaded and installed the T-Mobile iOS4 MMS fix, restarted the phone, then reset the network settings. now my mms fields are filled in, but my apn field above the mms settings is blank... and the edge still works! i think the fix that i downloaded puts the apn in some plist file and doesn't need it in the apn settings found in "CEllular data network".

    so right now its working. if it cuts out again though, i'll let you guys know that my method doesn't work

    Thanks! it worked -- think I had the same settings before just nothing in the APN field of the MMS settings.. put epc.tmobile.com in it because for some reason wap didn't work there. And now it works. thanks again.

    Hey guys
    Same issue here. Every time I reboot my i4 I'm unable to use edge. Tmobile support told me to insert my sim into a tmobile phone and launch browser to reset the sim. Reset sim? Weird. Anyway it works. But I have to do that every time. Someone also said that I need to install tmobile carrier bundles but I can't find a way. Cidia has them from the BigBoss repo but I get an error when I try to install. Any ideas?

    i can confirm that this is the case...if u use wifi and then turn it off, u have to take out sim to "reset" it...

    anyone have idea why this would happen?

    we need a fix!!!

    The darn thing keep's reseting every couple of hours... I lose Data pretty often which makes me lose my emails... Really Sucks. I'm thinking about selling it on ebay and just sticking with my 3G.

    This is all very interesting, I have had NO such issues with my iPhone4 on T-Mobile in Southern California.

    I have Facetime switched off. I did get 7 international text messages before I learned that I needed to keep Facetime off. I will call T-Mobile and see if they will credit me for the whopping $1.40!

    I loaded this source in Cydia: http://beta.leimobile.com/repo and then installed the T-mobile 4.0 MMS Fix and have not problems with either Edge or MMS, all work great.

    I have definitely rebooted my phone a few times and have also resprung many times. I have not had to ever remove my personally trimmed SIM card.

    What a bummer for some of you! Nothing worse than all these problems. I really hope T-Mobile gets the iPhone so I don't have to jack with all this. I will be jailbroken with that said!

    ok so my edge has been behaving for past day or so.. here is what i noticed and i'm not sure if it actually is correlated.

    but when my "notifications" are on under settings -- edge works fine.
    If i turn my notifications off, the edge stops working within an hour or so.

    for those of you, whose edge isn't working, are your notifications off?
