Thread: sidekick plan stopped working all of a sudden

    Default sidekick plan stopped working all of a sudden
    Hey Guys,

    I'm running a jailbroken ultrasn0w'd iPhone 3G on 3.0.1. I have the sidekick unlimited plan and have been using it for about 11 months now with no problems.All of a sudden my data stopped working and I've tried everything in my will to fix it. Respring/reboot doesn't help. I re-stored and re-jailbroke and that didn't work either. I also tried my SIM in another phone and was able to connect to the internet. Then replaced the SIM in the iPhone and still no internet.

    My APN settings are:
    hiptop.t-mobile.com
    guest
    guest

    Anyone know anything I can do? I called t-mobile and they told me I need the "smart phone" data plan, but I don't really believe anything they say anymore...

    Thanks in advance!

    im guessing its on tmobiles end as this would hit their own sidekicks, not just iphones.

    and its acting like it is connected, but it just times out, which usually is a server side error

    I understand the myth is that iphone users are going to use more data than you would on a sidekick but at home I use wifi and out I use it mostly to check email and now and then to do a search or check weather. I personally checked my account and my data has NOT skyrocketed from my sidekick days so to pay whatever more a month they want is rape! (yeah I said it!..lol)

    I already pay alot and use alil. I might just move on and get raped by AT&T. Atleast then I can get a NEW iphone for the price I been buying year old ones for off Craigslist and not have to worry about unlocking. Smh at TMo. I love em but might be time to move on.

    good to hear some feedback from someone who spoke with tmobile but on sidekick (not prepaid) but monthly plan i have never had any apn but hiptop.t-mobile.com to work so i'm not sure this will solve most users problems.

    Just tried it and no luck.

    Just got off the phone with tmobile and they said they close th loop hole so iphones can't use the sidekick plan for internet. They said it's for sidekicks only. He basically accused me o stealing there internet.

    i got sidkick plan and 1.00 day prepay... i think they did close loop hole ..cause if i put my sim in a old tmobile phone it will not connect to network but when i use my other sim card basic pre pay plan im my old tmobile phone it connects ..so i gusee tmobile did something to the account with the sk plan so it wont connect.....has anyone tryed a sk with sim to see if it connects BUt use differnt sim not the one u use in iphone

    I called and got the same explanation about the Sidekick policy change. I was on the $20 unlimited data and text plan and they told me that in order to get the data portion working again, I needed to get on a smartphone plan that is $24.99 without unlimited text. If I wanted to get unlimited text that would be an additional $10. I'm no longer under a 2-year contract (it expired) and I asked if changing the data plan would require me to sign up for another 2-year contract. The representative said no, I would still be paying monthly out of contract. I'm in NYC. They said there aren't any power outages in my area that they could see. Hope that helps.

    It makes sense that it isn't a power outage since its only sidekick plans that are affected (why aren't people on smartphone plans having trouble?) and phone service is ok, its just data that's not working...
