Thread: Unlimited Data on your iPhone on Fido & Rogers: Bogus?

  1. #1
    Default Unlimited Data on your iPhone on Fido & Rogers: Bogus?
    http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=10131160822

    OVERVIEW
    Rogers and Fido offer unlimited internet option for iPhone for $7/month but requires the WAP access software modification which I perform.

    If you have an iPhone, don't you want unlimited internet anywhere you are in Canada, even if you don't have Wi-Fi? With this, you will be able to go on MSN, Facebook, Sports sites, News sites, stocks and everything else on your iPhone through the cell phone networks, and only pay $7 per month for UNLIMITED INTERNET!

    The unlimited plan came out today. Check the Fido or Rogers links below and you will see.

    There is nothing illegal about this. I am simply adding a method of inputting an IP address to access the WAP protocol. Any iPhone restore will eliminate any trace of this.

    If you want to take advantage of this, I will perform the WAP access software modification on your iPhone for $80, which will guarantee you unlimited WAP browsing on your iPhone for as long as you subscribe to the $7 option.

    BACKGROUND
    Fido and Rogers have both come out with an unlimited WAP internet browsing package for $7 per month. Keep in mind, this is WAP, and not internet, meaning that you will have to access through the WAP server to avoid being charged. On the iPhones, you cannot input an IP address and therefore are limited to the internet APN and cannot use the WAP APN.

    Take a look at:

    and

    http://www.rogers.com/web/content/wi...e_mobile#start

    Call me when you have time. It will take about 20 minutes to complete the modification. Also, not included with the modification, I provide software update services for your iPhone.

    ***** Call Shawn
    ***** 514-585-0085


    TECHNICAL
    The software modification is needed because Fido seperated their internet into two servers: WAP (goam.com for Rogers and wap.fido.ca for Fido) and INTERNET (internet.com for Rogers and internet.fido.ca for Fido). WAP is for mobile phones accessing the mobile internet, and INTERNET is for PC cards, laptops, and iPhones without the software modification. In order to access the WAP server, you need an IP address, and there is no where on the iPhone to type that in. The software modification changes this.

    The unlimited plan will be unlimited WAP (on device surfing) and the iPhone cannot access the internet through WAP without the software modification.

    In order to access the WAP server, you need this software modification. You can use the INTERNET server without the software modification, but you will be billed at $50/mb, which will add up to thousands per month. The software modification allows for unlimited WAP for $7/month.

    In order to access the WAP APN on an iPhone, a software modification needs to be performed using OpenSSH, modifying a few .PLIST files which I wrote myself using fairly advanced J++.

    PRICING
    If you want to take advantage of this, I will perform the WAP access software modification on your iPhone for $80, which will guarantee you unlimited WAP browsing on your iPhone for as long as you subscribe to the $7 option.

    ya cause right now it sort of seems like a scam the other thing though if it is on WAP will we still be able to go to any website and see the full website or just the ******** looking websites that you get on normal cell phones so all text base ect will I be able to still go on digg, view this forum, use youtube, maps ect using WAP?

    I just noticed he is from montreal too and i am from toronto so unless he has another method I am not driving there to get this done lol

    well I'm not to sure this is true, I just gave Rogers a call... they said that the only thing that is free, is when you visit and I quote the guy and their website: Google searches ,Yahoo! Canada, Canada.com, Windows Live, MétéoMédia, Lava life Mobile, and more... whatever that means. I personally don't give a crap about those sites, I want to be able to use Google maps and locate me anywhere. As well as retrieve my emails. That's all.

    The guy I spoke to didn't seem to understand which data plan I was talking about since he was talking about the Wireless Vision thing or whatever and unlimited video calls..... But it clearly says on the rogers site that it also works with non vision compatible phones... and who cares about video calls anyways. He also said that it was a 3 year contract for that unlimited data plan, which I don't really care... but still doesn't seem to be what we expect....

    I found out how to connect to the Edge network with Rogers Wireless.. but I used Google maps twice last month to see how much it would cost me, and for 67kB of data, it cost me almost 8$....

    Here is the info you must enter in the EDGE settings under the Network tab of settings in the iPhone...

    APN: internet.com
    Username: wapuser1
    Pass: wap

    carefull, as I warned... it will cost you a lot of money if you use this to mutch.... 5cents per kB

    I might just give the guy a call to see and understand more what he is talking about.... But seems a bit weird I must say.

    you didn't mention, "no google maps" ...
    can I assume "surfing" means google maps included? what about weather?

    look what i found on Craigslist... i have a feeling it might be fake...

    Are you on Fido?? http://fido.ca/portal/en/domore/3g_m...internet.shtml
    Also what you wrote in edge settings.. Because i want to take the unlimited data plan and Im on Fido.. Here it said that you cant use this with non fido cell: The Unlimited surfing on your Fido option includes unlimited mobile surfing on your handset and is only available on selected handsets only (non-Fido certified handsets, Windows Mobile devices and PC cards are not eligible). Data usage incurred on ineligible handsets and devices, incurred while tethering (using a handset or device as a wireless modem or laptop) or incurred using non-Fido (third party) applications downloaded to your handset will be subject to a pay-per-use charge of 5¢ per KB. Option applies within Canada only. While roaming outside Canada, data transmission charge of 5¢ per KB apply, except in the U.S. where data transmission charges of 1¢ per KB apply.

    I want to be sure that it work before I take this plan.. Thankss

    Yes, this is bogus. Don't waste your money or your time. There is no need to enter an IP address as it is automatically assigned by Rogers/Fido. Rogers for example, for your APN: You would either enter goam.com or internet.com and the IP is assigned. What this guy says he can do (it appears) is type in APN: gaom.com, but actually use an IP for internet.com, and this doesn't make a damn bit of difference. Rogers can still tell if you're browsing or using data, and you will be charged accordingly.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.
