    Default My turbo sim story so far ...
    Well yesterday i tried a rebel sim, total waste of time gave me a pretty stable signal but no data edge or 3g anything! So today I've been using a gevey 3g plus 2, and up to now its working very well indeed a nice data connection, and works well with safari but when I click the app store it says cant cannot connect etc please connect to itunes, any ideas? if there a way to activate the app store and itunes on my phone to work on the t-mobile network?


    I wish i could do a software unlock but I'm stuck on 02.30.03 with boot loader 6.2 i believe well that's what fuzzyband says.

    so yeah any help you could give me on the app store issue would be great after that id have a fully working iphone 3g!

    Thanks again.

    go to vpn, put in internet2.voicestream.com than it will work, it have to be done everytime when you restart your phone.

    1) He said that Safari works OK so it's not an APN problem
    2) That might work for T-Mobile in the USA but wouldn't for the UK
    3) Once the APN is entered I've never had to re-enter it.

    You right, but on my iphone, i have to manually type in the APN everytime if I restart or shut off my phone.

    What FW are you on? Mines a 3G on 2.20 and i haveonly ever had to put in the APN once (on T-Mob in the UK.
    I'm wondering if it's to do with the fact that you don't need a username or password whereas we do.

    My boot loader is 6.2, so i have to use sim adaptor, did you know there is any hack i can do on the setting, it won't reset the setting after i restart my phone?

    What network are you running on currently? Due to t-mobile in the UK having no edge coverage at all. I don't think its the sim i think its just the lack of edge in the UK roll on a software unlock!

    Thanks again!

    Try putting your SIM in another phone an loading a web page. This "activates" the data on the SIM.

    Is it a Gevey 3G Plus 2? or just the original Plus.
    Which Network are you trying to use it on?

    Have you turned off 3G as T-Mobile's 3G is incompatible with the iPhone/
