    You are using the HipTop plan and the APN internet.fido.ca is working for you? hmmm

    I am using the 3MB for 25$ in Vancouver and it doesnt work. It always says EDGE not activated. Maybe i Need a different data plan but fido says that everything is setup correctly.

    I also talked to Fido today to see if i could piggy back the rogers data network and they said no. they only share voice networks not data.

    i really want this to work.

    Must be away to add more options through the plist files for FIDO's 8080 port and ip addresses.

    edge is working aswell with internet.fido.ca fido/fido

    i have it set up under the hiptop plan which i am STILL TESTING (so keep quiet solaris) one fido CSR told me data is data with the hiptop plan and using any other phone will not make a difference, a second one told me they can tell via the imei (which i never gave them so if they are assuming the first phone i used on the plan was my hiptop then in thier eyes iphone = hiptop ) now the second person who said oh yeah you'll be charged i asked him to look at my account and tell me if i had gotten any charges from using a different phone the other day and he said there was nothing posted nothing flagged. and apparently im getting a bill tomorrow (the account was activated on tuesday though lol) so i really hope to know soon and hope i dont get chearged because i was playing with edge and accidently used 9.2mb

    *****BUT******

    IF this works it is my belief that iPhone HAS to be the first phone you use on teh account and tehy can not have an imei of a hiptop on file.


    on a side note, a friend of a friend (totally unreliable i know) works at rogers and said that the update for the itunes wifi store will include rogers branding of the phone and iphone luanch will be sept 28. i called bullshit but i guess we will see. interestingly enough touch comes out on the 28th... hm hm.

    It is odd that Rogers would work better then fido considering rogers owns fido.

    although the networks are quasi integrated now i believe that rogers customers take priority over fido. the way its all setup seems very strange to me. the front end they try and make it all look like a very seperate comapany and the back end is a crazy jumble they should really sort out...

    i unlocked using the method on iphone.unlock.no

    1. havn't checked voicemail notifications yet
    2. EDGE works perfectly for me.
    internet.fido.ca fido/fido
    3. got youtube working easily

    as for the hiptop plan, a friend of mine tried using that plan but used the sim in an edge card.. the bill came to north of a grand and they wouldn't waive it.

    Maybe this has something to do with our Sim Cards or type of plan. My sim card is about 4-5 years old...whenever they first came out with the 40$ City Fido plan. Either I am going crazy or Fido just sucks.

    City Fido Plan 40$
    Vaule Pack 11$ (VM, CD, ND, 50 TEXT)
    Data Plan 25$

    Are those here with the same problems on City Fido??

    I know edge works on my phone with Rogers and T-Mobile in the states so I have determined it is something to do with Fido.

    Drop

    Go to a Fido location and get one of the new SIM cards ... $25, they'll switch your account to the new card and you should be all set for EDGE.

    Nope,

    apn: internet.fido.ca
    username: fido
    password: fido

    works just fine on the west coast on the iPhones I have done.

    But most people want it OFF so they don't receive the $1000 bills.
