First and foremost - I want to thank you for your generosity in releasing your hard work to the general public.
For what it's worth - your T-Mobile Alternative #2 worked fine for me on 4.3.1 for about a week. Then one day, my MMS messages failed to come in. I rebooted a few times thinking it would fix it, but it didn't. I attempted to send some MMS but they failed. On my final attempt to send, not only did it fail, but I saw the MMS icon disappear. As stated in my previous message, nothing was able to bring it back.
I was itching to update to 4.3.2 anyway, so I didn't troubleshoot further. Once I updated, the same issue happened after 2 days. Of course, I had no desire to reload 4.3.2 yet again, so I poked around to see what's different between the files on my iPhone and a Pwnagetool-ed IPSW. That was when I discovered the two missing plists. I had no idea where they went, but restoring them did bring things back.
That said - is there a way to manually fix Facetime without any cydia packages? When I was on 4.2.1, I was able to get Facetime to activate just by repeated tries. I figured it might have been a permission or missing symlink somewhere. (Of course, this is your secret that you worked so hard to figure out, so I would absolutely understand if you choose not to divulge this information).
Again, thank you for your hard work and contribution!
If this is the process you are interested in:
1. download the IPSW for your iOS version.
2. download Pwnagetool for you iOS version.
3. use Pwnagetool to make a custom ipsw. Why? Apple's ipsw files are encrypted. By making a custom ipsw using Pwnagetool, you have an unencypted ipsw.
4. (Did the next steps on a Mac) rename the .ipsw extension from the custom ipsw file to .zip.
5. unzip the package
6. copied the largest dmg file to your destop (roughly 600+ MB)
7. mount the dmg file
8. navigate to /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone (your path might be different, depending on your iOS version).
9. copy unknown.bundle to your iPhone via any way you know how (SSH, iPhoneBrowser, etc, etc)
10. reset network setttings on your iphone. you'll be forced to reboot.
Again - I am not making any claims. I am merely stating this is how I was able to get my Carrier setting to revert back to "Carrier 10" (and I didn't lose my facetime activation in the process). Your mileage may vary.
Oh yes - I really want to stress to other forums members that if you are stuck in facetime activation - chances are, you installed one of the many MMS/facetime/carrierbundle/commcenter hacks. I found none of these to really help me in getting full functionality. Restoring to a fresh ipsw and loading Scroopy's deb(s) should get it all working for you.

is it only me? but when i donwload i4MMS my service completely goes away, and my sim card becomes unreadable. Is it interefering with ultrasnow? I am on iOS4.2.1 TMOBILE USA 01.59.00
I previouslly had facetime working but no MMS so i just tried out the newly released i4MMS but it just messed everything up... any help?
EDIT: i went to cydia and uninstalled i4MMS and i get my service back. This has happened to me twice already i even had to completely restore to make sure it was i4MMS that was making me lose service and i found out it is.
UPDATE: i finally got mms working and facetime, i guess scroopys instructions werent specific to me. Once i installed i4MMS cydia gives me the option to "REBOOT IPHONE" i ignored it and just pressed the home button instead. So i mantained my service and was able to access i4MMS... i followed the rest of the steps and it worked! I chose the first "T-Mobile" option as my settings and i can confirm that my MMS is working and Facetime is working. Thanks a lot scroopy!

Hey man I really need your help,
I was previously on 4.0.2 with a T-Mobile iPhone 4, and I had internet2.voicestream.com in the Edge section of Cellular Data and it worked (edge, that is), although no matter what I did MMS did not work. Now I am on 4.3.2 unlocked and jailbroken T-Mobile iPhone 4, and I have installed your package and neither edge nor MMS work. I need edge DESPERATELY since I use it at my job everyday. What do I do to fix the egde? I have used all 4 of your T-Mobile packages, reset settings, then put into airplane mode, and none have worked. I appreciate the help in advance, as it is MUCH needed.

I think the very first i4MMS worked best.. :-(
04-30-2011, 02:21 AM #169
I confirmed this WORKs with iphone 4 4.3.2 on T-Mobile! baseband 1.59.00!
For anyone who has problem with EDGE not working on 4.3.2, do this:
put in APN for tmobile in cellular data networking, then TAKE sim out and PUT it back in THEN reboot.
This solved the problem for me after an hour of trying all other methods!
Then install i4MMS, select the one with internet2.voicestream.com and wap.voicestream.com then turn on facetime, and in a few minutes, your facetime will be runningiPhone 4 32GB. Jailbroken!

I guess this is the problem I experience: Iphone 4 OS 4.2.1 baseband 1.59.00 unlock for t-mobile
After install i4MMS and reboot. I do not get any signal then if I install the i4MMS fix then reboot I would get signal but after apply either package 1-5 goto setting then iphone crash in setting. I would not be able to goto setting screen. If I remove i4MMS fix then again will not get any signal for t-mobile. .. :-(
