    Default Potential T-mobileWeb Proxy Solution

    There was another thread concerning getting T-mobileWeb to work using the EDGE settings plist, but I guess it never worked for anyone.

    There is a page over on livejournal from a guy that uses a PAC file for his proxy needs with his iPhone. It involves editing the SystemConfiguration preferences.plist file. The page is here:
    http://etler.livejournal.com/18726.html

    He has instructions for creating EDGE proxy settings, but he doesn't make it quite clear if he uses the proxy settings over his EDGE connection.

    If this works someone should be able to use a PAC file on the iPhone with the proper T-mobile settings:

    function FindProxyForURL(url, host) { return "PROXY 216.155.165.50:8080; DIRECT"; }

    and be able to get internet with the cheap $5.99 T-MobileWeb plan.

    Perhaps someone that is on T-mobile is willing to try this method out?

    If I am right this is the same thing people were doing on xda-devs with their pocketpc's and that shiat was slow as fugg. Just pay for the 29.99, hell thats a steal compared to att data rates.

    Why would you pay 29.99 when you can just get the blackberry plan for 19.99 (which should work as well) and is just as fast?

    I am trying this fix for the proxy settings. I think it is a step in the right direction. Now when I check the weather or net it seems to take alot longer than it did before timing out. I think my proxy.pac file is the problem. Anyone have a working file they could post on here?

    I got it to work.

    still a few issues:

    Mail does not work, it keeps trying to contact ports 25 and 110 to send and recieve well obviously I am telling it to use port 8080, so that is next to figure out.

    Here are the settings I used with Qtel:

    First I found a proxy.pac file, edited it in notepad (if you save as for testing make sure it does not save as proxy.pac.txt):

    function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
    {
    if (isInNet(myIpAddress(), "10.0.0.0", "255.0.0.0"))
    return "PROXY 10.23.8.3:8080";
    else
    return "DIRECT";
    }


    Qtel gives us 10.x.x.x addresses so I just told it to use the proxy when my address is that.

    Next I saved this file in "/private/var/root"

    Then I edited my preferences file located in: /private/var/root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist (I used wordpad) adding the following:

    <dict>
    <key>Interface</key>
    <dict>
    <key>DeviceName</key>
    <string>ip1</string>
    <key>Hardware</key>
    <string>com.apple.CommCenter</string>
    <key>Type</key>
    <string>com.apple.CommCenter</string>
    </dict>
    <key>Proxies</key>
    <dict>
    <key>ProxyAutoConfigEnable</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    <key>ProxyAutoConfigURLString</key>
    <string>file:///private/var/root/proxy.pac</string>
    </dict>

    <key>com.apple.CommCenter</key>
    <dict>
    <key>AllowNetworkAccess</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    <key>Available</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    <key>Setup</key>
    <dict>
    <key>apn</key>
    <string>gprs.qtel</string>
    <key>password</key>
    <string>gprs</string>
    <key>username</key>
    <string>gprs</string>
    </dict>
    <key>Version</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    </dict>
    </dict>

    ** dont forget it's "file///" 3 slashes after file.

    Then I saved the file and put it back on my Iphone. Web/Weather/Stocks and Utube (brings up the page but too slow on GPRS to play video) work, but not Mail. Like I said earlier I think its a port issue.

    Hope you have luck getting it to work, this fix was based on this website:
    http://etler.livejournal.com/18726.html

    Let me know if you get it to work also.

    Great, now I need to change the Safary UserAgent, because my proxy on imode checks for special useragent (imode browser). Any ideas how to do this?

    T-Mobile allows access to port 25 and 110 on the 5.99 plan.

    And the total internet plan is now $19.99. Price was dropped yesterday. Still includes Hotspots. So anyone paying $29.99 right now should jump on that right away.
