    Default China Mobile + EDGE/GPRS

    I am having problems with getting EDGE/GPRS to work on China Mobile. I have tried editing my EDGE settings, setting the APN to both cmnet and cmwap and they both have not worked. Safari keeps saying "Unable to find server". Anybody with experience that can help me out? I'm located in Beijing.

    Set APN to cmnet and leave both user name and password blank.

    That still gets me the "Safari can't open the page because it can't find the server." error.

    Prehaps do a restart? Make sure to check the correct settings for your carrier. Check the website or call them.

    go into Field Test CALL *3001#12345#* check the PDP Information.
    Are you getting the correct APN and a IP address ?
    Do you get "Could no activate EDGE: you are not subscribed to EDGE"?
    try, settings->general->Reset->reset network Settings

    I'm getting correct APN and an IP that starts with 10.*

    Any chance it must go through a proxy/gateway? How I was instructed to configure a proxy on my RAZR to access China Mobile GPRS. How would I do this on my iPhone?

    I am also using China Mobile on a recently yellowsn0w unlocked iPhone 3G. I couldn't access the web until I did this:

    1. Go to Settings
    2. Network
    3. Cellular Data Network
    4. APN: cmnet username: guest password: guest

    After that it worked fine for me. Too bad China Mobile is retarded and refuses to let me sign up for a data plan this month (5RMB / 30MB , 20RMB / 150MB). I have to wait till NEXT month to go on the plan. If I use it now I will end up paying 1RMB / 1MB So I would suggest you not bother using it this month unless you're on a plan already.

    I honestly don't get why they don't just let me pay an extra month's fee. I don't even care that I'm didn't use it for the first 4 days of this month. -_-

    If you want to connect to CMWAP, you must jailbroken your iPhone first.
    Or you can call 10086 to ask them to give you a guide.
