    one quick question...why does my mms only work when wifi is off...
    its really odd but whenever i turn wifi off i receive images that people sent to me like a day before. it works fine if i leave wifi off but i use wifi a lot at home and i'm always updating things through ssh...

    Found this thread yesterday, did the bundle install using Cydia.

    Phone is 3G, with 3.0.1 firmware jailbroken with redsn0w, and unlocked with ultrsn0w.

    My T-Mobile plan is 300 Min + 500 Messages + 9.99 Unlimited Web2go

    The bundle used is:

    T-Mobile US - Postpaid/Flexpaid Legacy
    APN: internet2.voicestream.com
    MMS: wap.voicestream.com
    GroupModeEnabled: FALSE
    MMSC: http://216.155.174.84/servlets/mms
    MaxMessageSize: 1048576
    MaxVideoBitrate: 131072
    MaxRecipients: 10
    Proxy: 216.155.165.50:8080
    UAProf: http://www.apple.com/mms/uaprof.rdf
    UserAgent: SonyEricssonW800i/R1L
    Version: 1.2

    The result:
    Working:
    - internet via Edge
    - SMS
    - Auto time update

    Not Working
    - MMS
    - No Internet tethering

    Anyway, right now I'm not able to get any sort of internet connectivity. I have SBsettings installed and it shows a data IP, but I get the "Safari cannot open the page because it is not connected to the internet" error.

    Before my upgrade I was using epc.tmobile.com APN. I had changed it several times before I installed the carrier bundle. (I think the bundle turned off my ability to change APN).

    So here I am with no internet on my phone, kicking myself for upgrading.

    Any suggestions? I've uninstalled the carrier bundle and reset network settings several times.

    Thanks.
    Which bundle did you install? I used the first one on the wifes phone and it is still working great. Uninstall the bundle you now have and it will give you back the APN settings. Try the WAP address instead of the EPC.

    Weird thing...yesterday the wife sent a MMS but it sent me a txt msg saying to go to my.tmobile to see it. This is the way AT&T does it, you dont see the pic you just get a msg saying to go online to see it.

    Just sent myself a pic and it works fine now.

    I am disappointed by the situation with Visual Voicemail (VVM). I have all the right settings. It just doesn't work. It may be a user agent issue. It may not be. I suspect the Voicemail 1.0.5 app is doing something nefarious upon activation, or every time it is launched, that the iPhone VVM app is not doing.

    T-Mobile have told me to piss off. I cannot expect help from them. Since so very few have donated, I cannot rent a cheap, Indian coder to have a look at the disassembled Voicemail 1.0.5 app. Thus far, I have had no volunteers.

    I will not link you to the disassembled nor original Voicemail 1.0.5 myTouch app. The last thing I need is T-Mobile's lawyers heckling me. I will, however, link you to my GitHub VVM branch. You are free to play with it. It does not work, and you may get weird, cryptic, status SMS. You will not be charged. They are network SMS messages that are not meant for the user, but the phone. I'm not sure why the phone doesn't interpret them.

    I've been Googling. Thus far no one has published these settings, but me. Either there is no interest, or people have not figured out how to get the app off the currently unrootable myTouch 3G. It would be awesome if we were still the first ones in the race to get it to work--if there is a race--for bragging rights if nothing else.
    so how much is the coder asking for because i would REALLY REALLY LOVE this feature to enabled for tmobile. Hit me up @SpookyET

    It seems to be working now. Thanks for the help. I had tried several bundles and none worked. I uninstalled and reset the settings, then I installed the T-Zones Bundle for the third time. Everything seems to be working including MMS. My issues might have been on T-mobile's side.

    For anyone who is having trouble with sending MMS, the solution might be just to wait. I have had the 1.0.5 bundle installed for a few weeks. After I installed the bundle MMS didn't show up, but I rebooted the phone and it has worked ever since. Last night, however, I tried to send an MMS and the bar would get about 95% of the way to the end and then fail. After two or three fails, I gave up and figured I would have to reinstall the bundle later. This morning, however, I figured I would try one last time and it worked perfectly. I hadn't done anything since last night, but today it worked. Sometimes there is just a problem on T-Mobile's side and it makes things not work for a while.

    Many times, more than I care to remember - it has been 'carrier problems'. Not speaking about T-Mobile specifically, but all. I travel alot and frequently see this. Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 reboots, sometimes it takes hours (aka carrier issues) for problems to abide.

    I concur totally. Patience is a virture.

    I haven't been shopping. I've been busy with another project. RentACoder.com is a bid site. Look for yourselves at prices.

    If I read it correctly, Rent a Coder is a site where one goes to hire 'programmers' to perform specific tasks.

    Its impossible to estimate the cost without knowing the tasks or the requirements.

    What tasks do you need help with?

    I need someone who understands java and java intermediate language and some android programming to look at the voicemail app to figure out how it activates your account on first boot, what it does on subsequent launches and if "TMO VVM LAB" is part of a user agent that needs to be sent. He'll need some iPhone experience to figure out why it's not working too.

    More on Visual Voicemail. I've been digging around. There seem to be 2 protocols by which the iPhone understands Visual Voicemail. One is ACDS, which is used by AT&T. It is SMS-based. It uses a SMS trigger to download new messages. It requires minimal configuration, just the APN and enable/disable toggle. It automatically downloads a configuration file from the server given by the APN.

    The other method, which seems to be universally popular on all iPhone carriers, as well as non-iPhone VoIP carriers, is IMAP-based, the e-mail protocol. It doesn't use IMAP-IDLE to stay connected to VVM. It uses a GSM standard Message Waiting Indicator, which is used by traditional voicemail. It requires a lot of configuration entries, which cannot be edited via GUI. T-Mobile Germany use IMAP. I think 99% use IMAP.

    It could look something like
    MESSAGE SENT: [email protected] (T-Mobile SMS Gateway Number)
    MESSAGE RECEIVED: [email protected] (Your phone number)

    ACDS seems simpler. It might be superior since it doesn't come with a lot of IMAP baggage. IMAP was designed for complicated e-mail, not simple voice messages. On the other hand, one could easily implement a Google Voice clone over IMAP and not have to code something custom over ACDS. Many VoIP providers are capable of emailing you voicemails. But, like I have said, besides AT&T, I no one else is using ACDS. Everyone uses IMAP. It seems AT&T wanted a custom protocol.
    This would be an important step to making Google Voice seamless and invisible on the iPhone. SMS is already taken care of, thanx to Google's 406 prefix. I wonder if it would be possible to alter the phone app to prefix all dialed calls with your google voice number, and '2', as well.

    Then, we could use the iPhone's inbuilt dialer, SMS, and VVM features, and be invisibly using our GV numbers, all without needing the GV Mobile app.

    (Both GV Mobile, and voice.google.com/m require internet access to dial. It's kind of sketchy on EDGE, sometimes placing a call takes nearly a minute.)

    Here's the pitch

    Help wanted posted: http://www.modmyi.com/forums/3rd-par...ml#post4900557

    Maybe someone on MMI can help. Thinking about waiting a few days before going outside.

    Am I understanding correctly that if I install the carrier settings via Cydia that there is no easy way for me to delete it if I find necessary? Thanks

    I had no problems with removing the bundle at all I did this several times as I was having trouble on my girlfriends phone some reason though none with mine. However I did get hers to succesfully install and we are both very happy with the bundle
