Thread: T-Mobile Edge APN
09-13-2007, 07:55 PM #1T-Mobile Edge APN
I'll make this short and easy - let's see if somebody here can do what T-Mobile can't.
I unlocked my phone successfully and am up and making calls like a champ... however, when I try and access anything online I'm having issues, specifically because of EDGE.
I have T-Mobile with a BlackBerry Pearl on the account and have (obviously) switched over to the iPhone and am now interested in accessing the web via it.
What is the APN info I need to access it? I have tried a few that I saw listed online but none have worked... I know I have EDGE because I often see it pop-up on my Pearl while I'm browsing sites.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated - thanks!
Well... This is a turn.
I'm here to answer my own question.
I did a ton of searches prior to posting and didn't find ****! Eventually, I came up with this site!
FYI: For T-Mobile use: wap.voicestream.com
I titled this thread so that anyone searching for this in the future would find it ASAP!
Good luck people!

If not using the blackberry plan and using the total internet plan then the apn is internet2.voicestream.com
Though Edge still doesn't work on mine.

Has anyone solved this issue?
TMO told me to use internet2.voicestream.com, but when I try to save that as the APN with no user/pass the iPhone does NOT save the information.
I can't access anything Internet, only with Wifi.
I have saved, resaved dozens of times with both wap. and internet2. but the iphone just will not save the data.
Please help if you know how to get internet going on the iphone for Tmobile.

Then I took the sim out, put it in an actual tmobile phone and used tzones on that phone. After it works on the tmobile phone just switch the sim card back to the iphone. For me that got edge to work perfectly.

Maybe wrong place to ask but is Tmobiles Edge service different from ATT? Is there a performance diff???

Thanks guys, I figured it out. My phone software was still at 1.0 and when I upgraded it to 1.02 it now is allowing me to save the APN, and it works with internet2.voicestream.com.

this post is a year old man.
if you have tmobile USA, just go into installer or cydia and search for t-zones hack for your firmware.
tell tmobile you want the 5.99 tzones plan. nothing else!
enjoy ur internet!
also check the date of posts before you start tryin em out!

You guys know t-moble know when you using i-phone so you can tell them ou like internet activate 5.99 one.

Can someone update me as to what the current skinny is on this topic. I have an iPhone that was working great in LA on T-mobile's Edge network. I'm in Texas for the week and I don't get edge anymore - just a small tiny "degrees" symbol. (what is this - whatever it is is horribly slow. I can get emails if I wait forever, but the web is useless.
I am using the legacy postpaid version 1.0.11 tweak from Cydia - internet2.voicestream.com.
Why would it stop working in Texas? T-mobile is no help. In fact they seem to have changed my designated phone (some touch type iPhone look-alike) on my online account settings.
What to do?
Just realized I'm in a windows thread. My previous post has nothing 2 do with windows . Should I go elsewhere?
