    Could we get the APN info? We did a quick attempt using hiptop.t-mobile.com (pulled from friend's sidekick) using friend's sim card, success at calls, fail at internet. Working on solution, any info on how you got it to work would be friggin awesome.

    So were you able to successfully connect to safari, maps, weather, stocks and YouTube on your new iphone on the sidekick plan through an edge connection? My boyfriend just got a 1st gen. iphone on fw 2.1 to replace his sidekick lx. If the sidekick plan works, that would be pretty cool. What do you have entered for your edge APN???

    Can you do just the opposite? Use you iphone plan (total internet) with a sidekick lx?

    Yah...i've heard they killed epc.tmobile.com I wonder what it is exactly about the sidekick plan that makes it not work with the iphone. I've heard all sorts of things about it, some say it streams a second connection for faster data and a different encryption protocol than the iphone uses, some say danger's servers just won't connect because the iphone reports it's browser version as different than that of the sidekick. Anyone got inside info? thatd be lovely in figuring out a workaround.

    Edit: I think i'll call tmobile tomorrow to see what i can find out. Their tier 3 techs are very enthusiastic and helpful, and should be able to shed some light on the situation for us. Will post findings when done.

    Anyone know if this is working? I have the sidekick plan but want to be able to swap my sim to my iphone from time to time.

    I have no problem with my epc.tmobile.com with the sidekick plan, but sometimes it will mess up and the only thing you need to do is put the sim in a edge phone and surf the web for about 15 seconds and put it back in your iphone

    Im also on a 3g with smartchip 2.1 software.. hopes this helps
