    Default [Advice] Switching from T-Zones plan to T-Mobile Internet plan on T-Mobile US

    I had the T-Mobile T-Zones plan ($5.99) for my OTB 1.1.2 / BL 4.6 (4.06) iPhone. I applied the T-Mobile $5.99 Unlimited Internet Edge Settings hack to get the internet to work on my iphone. I was able to get it working but I decided that I wanted the T-Mobile Internet plan instead ($19.99). I switched the apn to internet2.voicestream.com and left the password and username blank. Do I need to do anything to my preferences.plist file to revert the file back to the way it was prior to applying the T-Mobile $5.99 Unlimited Internet Edge Settings hack? I am unable to get onto the internet via Edge...I am getting the "Could not activate EDGE: You are not subscribed to EDGE" message. I switched the plans at about 1:30 pm and it is now 10:00 pm. I am not sure if I need to wait longer or if this is a issue with the iphone?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    dial *3001#12345#* and Call check PDP information--->pdp0 are u getting the right APN ? What about an IP address?
    I think you need to revert to your original plist not sure, give it a try.
    let us know if you observe a considerable difference, $14 worth.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I have this listed in pdp 0:

    Type: IP
    APN: internet2.voicestream.com
    Address: 0.0.0.0


    If I do not have my original preferences.plist file is there a way to get a copy of it from another person who has a OTB 1.1.2 / BL 4.6 (4.06) iphone or do I need to do some sort of restore and do the whole jailbreak-turbosim process again?

    Thanks,

    BD6675

    no you don't need to restore just copy a new pref.plist, I know there some posted but I cannot find them, maybe somebody can chime in to locate one.

    Crazy8,

    Thanks so much for your help. Does anyone have a preferences.plist for a OTB 1.1.2 / BL 4.6 (4.06) iphone?

    Do I just dump that new preferences.plist into /private/var/root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ ?

    Thanks again,

    BD6675

    Does anyone know if a fresh copy of a OTB 1.1.2 / BL 4.6 (4.06) preferences.plist file will do the trick here or do I need to restore?

    Does anyone have a clean copy of a OTB 1.1.2 / BL 4.6 (4.06) preferences.plist file that they can point me to?


    Thanks,

    BD6675

    I can't help with the plist file but have some comments about the two plans. I've had both. I first had the full internet plan. It was fine. I changed to the T Zones plan and installed the T Zones proxy hack and again everything has been fine. I did comparative speed tests using the iPhone Speed Test (www.iphonespeedtest.com) before & after the switch. The speeds were the same!

    The ONLY issue I know of is that I can't get iRadio to work over EDGE and others have said it will work with the full internet plan (??) Anyone using T Zones getting iRadio to work?

    (my phone is running 1.1.1)
