Thread: suncom and edge service

  1. #1
    Default suncom and edge service
    I have suncom service and my ifone works fine, but I do not have internet access except through wifi. Is there any way I can get my data services to work? I have been using a blackberry pearl and have all access on it. I contacted Apple and of course they say the only way is to get at&t service and I don't want to do that. Thanks

    To get internet access on SunCom you have to go to settings>general>network>edge
    and write on:

    APN: mobileinternet
    USER: empty
    PASS: empty

    thanks..I am on vacation. I will try it when I get back. Is it really that easy? I spoke to someone at suncom and apple and both said it was next to impossible. I am new to the ifone so I did not bring it with me. I just got it yesterday. Any other things I should do to it? I am running 1.1.3 firmware I think.

    make sure you get the $5.00 mobile internet plan on your plan, or your bill will be pretty high

    I was with SunCom and month ago with the unlimited national internet for $20 a month using an iPhone. They said I couldn't renew my plan and said I was using too much data usage on partner network. They can no longer provide service for me. So I left with no early termination fee and went to AT&T and got to new 3G iPhone. I was happy because they did me a favor!
