    umm well this is a long shot. But something similar happened to me today.
    I got tzones added to my plan exactly one month ago. tmbobile gives u ur first month free as a trial. But i called them and the guy was like oohhh...
    Apparently there is a 24 hour activation/ switch period from the trial to the one that actually starts showing up on ur bill.

    So i guess if u got ur internet exactly one month ago on this phone and received a trial, this maybe ur problem.

    But like i said, its a long shot.

    Go to cydia and search for "T-Mobile US - Postpaid/Flexpaid" - download the bundle and reset network settings.

    Can you post screenshots of your cellular data network screen (home+lock button). It may just be an outage. I know this has happened to T-zones users frequently.

    my comp wont let me and neither will the phone because it has no internet but right now the apn is epc.tmobile.com and the username and passord are blank and the mms is allright cause mms is working but i just got off the phone with tmobile (i think the guy i talked to has an iphone also cause he souded like he knew what he was talking about ) but he said it was prob because i was on the htc g1 plan instead of just a regular smartphone plan so he switched it and told me it will take effect in 2-48 hours but i dont think thats the prob because its been working on the g1 plan fine since december. any clue? if you insist on seing the screenshot i an send it to you through an mms but idk if you wantto post something like your number on here i can send it in an email later tonight when i go to my friends house who has wifi again thank you

    mine did the same thing. I dont even have the "E" up top anymore. What changed? I'm on simple mobile not T-mobile but it is ran off the same network. I have restored rejailbroke and unlocked tried 10 different APN settings and 2 carrier bundles. I dont know what is going on. Called CS and they told me T-mobile changed something with their network and they are working to resolve the issue, but I took my sim and put it in my Blackberry and edge works just fine so it has to be something with the iphone. DAMN!

    I was having a similar problem where all I could use was Google, I reset my phone by holding down the lock button and home button at the same time, and once the phone restarted, my internet was working again. The same thing would happen from time to time when I had a Blackberry, and hard resetting it always fixed the problem as well.

    When you get a dot instead of the E then your network doesn't have EDGE, or you're on GPRS (ridiculously slower than EDGE). Which is most likely why only Google loads up.
