    Default How to setup edge/VPN with 2g iPhone from US, now in Canada with Rogers?
    Hey MMI,

    Sorry if this is a repost, i am not new to searching, it is just a mess with all the version of iphones out now.

    I signed up for 6g/month data plan tonight, and cannot get EDGE working.

    I have gone into toggle, turned on EDGE, gone into settings>general>network>EDGE and tried to enable it but i do not have any VPN settings, nor do i know how to get one that will work for me.

    I bought a 1st gen when they first came out and brought it to Canada, where i have been using it with my old plan/sim card from my razor that had no data plan. now I feel like im ready for EDGE, but I cannot get it going.

    I have done many searches and seen many different VPN accounts, but i do not know which one will actually work. Shouldnt i have a real VPN since i am paying for it now?

    I have a 1st gen iphone 1.1.2 fw, jalbroken, youtube fix, etc. and run a WinXP

    Answer for Rogers Canada 2g users:

    internet.com
    name: wapuser1
    pw: wap

    try JUST internet.com without the wapuser1 wap

    it worked on my old iPhone.

    any luck yet there or what? From the sounds of it you are just using your regular settings from when it was in the states. So since it's a first gen iPhone it's technically locked. You should probably google search the appropriate link for an unlocking tool called 'Pwnage' unlocking tool, ugly name, I know but it will update ya to 2.0.1 (they're working on 2.0.2) and automatically set your data network for usage with your provider. I wasn't signed up for a deal until a few days into the update and I owed fido 330. I got it down to 290 and ditched fido for rogers now with a 6gb data plan/student 25.

    Hey MMi,

    I did post the answer to my initial problem the same night, it just merged my 2 posts into one, making it seem like i hadnt fixed it.

    thanks for tkain a look and the suggestions

    the solution was to use these settings:
    internet.com
    name: wapuser1
    pw: wap

    and it just worked instantly. that is for a US 1st gen iphone brought into Canada and using a simcard from a pre-existing razor and phone plan from rogers.

    thanks guys

    PS, i havent upgraded to 1.1.4, i couldnt find out what the benefit was, and all the iphone forums are a mess now since so many people are using different firmwares, and now the introduction to the 3g phone brings in a whole new population of users to repost and confuse things.

    i have gone up to 2.0 cuz of the bugs i have heard of. keep in mind that i have been using the 1st gen for a while now. so i have the psx, gba, snes, nes, and about 40+ other apps going, and compatibility may be an issue with upgrade.

    I have zero interest in AppStore, I have been getting all my apps for free with the exception of some donations to developers for hard work (zodtt, etc).

    i DO want to try the iphone app for 2.0 where you can measure your 1/4 mile times and speed, horsepower, etc. . that looks pretty cool

    thanks for the input,
    Cman
