    Default T-Mobile 'Web n walk' with T-SIM [UK]

    Hey guys.

    You may not realise this, but this is for anyone, like me, who has their iphone working in the UK on the T-Mobile network.

    After some rooting around, you can get unlimited (yes really unlimited) GPRS Data (all data) on T-Mobile for 7 a month extra. I think this is a pretty good value bundle, so I upgraded two days ago, and all I can say is wow.

    GMail works how it should. It's seems to work like PUSH email now where it just downloads (after checking every 15 mins), and notifies me whereever I am. This alone is very useful

    I was expecting the 2.5G GPRS that T-Mobile use to be slow, but suprisingly, it isn't. Infact it's quite nippy at times, and certainly fast enough for most web and email work.

    It may be worth looking into if you can afford an extra 7 a month, and need always on internet on the iPhone.

    Dan

    Did you have no issue getting GPRS to work?

    I have not had any success getting any settings in

    Settings - General - Network - EDGE

    to work yet ?!?!>!>!


    Not been too much of an issue cos I'm never too far away from a WiFi point these days but it would be nice to fall back on GPRS

    You really find T-Mobile GPRS speeds acceptable?? I thought GPRS was dog-slow.. have you tried loading the BBC News page, or using Google Maps over it?

    I am on O2 and I'm hoping to hell they announce a decent "all you can eat" data plan. The current 10 for 20MB is pathetic, considering that once over that you pay a whopping 3/MB!! And EDGE on O2 is no speed demon either

    Vodafone, 3, T-Mobile and even Orange all have far, far better data plans than O2.. I'm holding out for them to launch a new data plan within the next few weeks or they're going to look so incredibly uncompetitive.

    Alternatively, if Apple surprise all of us and release a 3G iPhone in Europe, my Turbo Sim unlocked iPhone will be on eBay faster than you can shout "Applesaft!"

    These settings work fine for me. You may need to talk to T-Mobile

    I would describe T-Mobile's GPRS as a 'speed daemon', but then I wouldn't describe it as 'dog slow' either. It takes a little longer than WIFI to load the BBC homepage (probably around 50% to 75%) longer, but this is still pretty acceptable. It can be slower at times, but also snappier too. Maybe T-Mobile doesn't have a bad network here in South West London.

    3G has never really interested me that much. I have never seen a good 3G data plan
