i have the same question...
i unlocked my phone and followed the instructions in the forum i can use pretty much all the functions except visual voicemail and EDGE network.
i use AT&T service but i didn't use the iphone plan though since it's unlocked...
so, can someone tell me how to setup the EDGE network for AT&T?

thanks for your reply. I read this setting in another thread.
the first problem is i don't have "EDGE". what I have is
the settings under "VPN" i have 2 options, "L2TP" or "PPTP".
then "Server", "Account", "Password", "Secret" and "Proxy(OFF,MANUAL,AUTO)"
(my iphone's firmware ver. 1.0.2)
if i use your setting, i will get the following message.
The server does not exist. Please
verify the server address and try
the plan i have is still $39.99 basic plan with no data plan.
even though i plan to add the $20 unlimited data plan but i actually use the edge service (per kb) in my old phone. i'm not sure if i have to add the data plan to make it work. please let me know if you have an idea.
thank you again for your help.

No, it needs to be in EDGE. You should add the data plan and see if it changes. And ALL you have under Networks is VPN?
09-17-2007, 02:22 PM #10
i thought the edge configuration settings only showed up there if there was a different carrier sim installed.
09-17-2007, 02:25 PM #11
Ah perhaps. Is this not with a foreign SIM installed?
09-17-2007, 02:39 PM #12
i have "VPN" and "Wi-Fi" under Network.
i use the Cingular Sim card in LA...not a foreign sim card...
will add the data plan later and see if it works.
i just checked my friend's iphone which activated in the normal process but his phone has no setting under VPN at all...so, i guess Data plan might be the reason. i will keep you guys posted if i find anything new.
i added the data plan. now it's working!
no setting needed for APN. just leave it unconfigured.

09-18-2007, 12:53 AM #13att blue with edge?
I have been trying to get EDGE to work with my old ATT Blue sim card. I unlocked the iPhone with anySIM and calling works great, but I do not get edge service. I have a small E in the upper left corner of the screen. When I open Safari I get a "could not connect to the EDGE network" message. I have an old plan with the 24.99 unlimited mmode plan. Searching the net I found some people have ICCID numbers that are too old. Can I get a newer Blue sim card from ebay and register that, The Att store told me they don't carry the older Blue sim cards anymore, and want me to get new service which is almost 2x the cost of my current verry old plan. Under settings>network I dont have EDGE settings I only have VPN and WI-Fi. Anyone any ideas?

right I am in the same situation have the old blue att service done want to migrate over to the new at&t cuz their plans suck...i have the 25 dollars unlimited mmode plan but .....looks like no one is smart enough to figure out how to do manual data configuration iphone is smart enough to hide the edge tab soooooo until some one figures out how to manually configure data settings we are out of luck

i got my EDGE!
i took the phone to my office yesterday tried to borrow my coworker's iphone to check his VPN setting. He use the regular way to activate. I found there's no VPN setting in his iphone. The VPN is unconfigured.
then I reset my VPN setting and tried to connect to internet. Since i don't have wifi in my office, my phone automatically pick up EDGE network. it works without any setting.
after i confirmed the EDGE network works in my phone I added the $20 data plan...
now i'm happy!

I also have no settings for the carrier or EDGE on my AT&T sim. This is the new AT&T sim and activated on my iphone account via the AT&T and Apple way. (The correct way!) However, I unlocked my iphone to use a Rogers Pay and GO sim in Edmonton Alberta and the Carrier settings shows up allowing me to change them. What is wrong with AT&T not allowing the carrier to show?
09-21-2007, 09:34 PM #17Old Blue Plan
Someone Please Help!! I am an old Blue Plan with a white Sim card with the numbers in GOLD ( dont know if this makes a different). I purchased an unlock Iphone and cannot access the EDGE Network nor the You Tube Websites
The File settings have been manually modified as other Posts have suggested and the seller and I installed the You tube on the phone and my phone still wont pick up either installations. Does anyone know why? I have ordered the "Blue" Sim Card from EBay- I am not sure if this will make a difference or not. Other Old Blue Plan users- Please help. I currently have a Razr and I recently added the 8MG Data Plan- so the Data Plan is already on my account- and I only can access WI-FI. Could it be that the Sim I have is old?
