    Only Telstra has EDGE in Australia.

    Telstra has EDGE (2.5G) but Optus and Vodafone and their affiliates have GPRS (2G). GPRS is about half the speed of EDGE, but it does indeed work on the iPhone.

    So, go to: Settings > General > Network > EDGE

    For Optus use the APN: internet

    For Telstra use the APN: telstra.internet

    For Vodafone use the APN: vfinternet.au


    And enjoy looking up Google Maps while stuck in traffic!

    I wouldn't even bother with anything less than HSDPA. The days of dialup speed is long gone for me.

    Don't knock it until you've tried it.

    EDGE is okay for:

    Mail
    Google Maps (actually very good for loading map data, it's surprising)
    Safari checking mostly text based news sites, such as http://www.smh.com.au/text/
    Safari checking Wikipedia, blogs updates, etc.
    Weather widget
    Stocks (enter ASX codes followed ".AX" and you'll have access to all Australian stocks, eg, BHP.AX = $39.40 on Friday close, the All Ordinaries is "^AORD", works very well.)

    People saying iPhone is useless without 3.6 Gbps HSDPA are bigoted. Yes, it would be nice, but it's not completely unusable without it.

    For the record - the Virgin Mobile settings are:

    APN VirginInternet

    No other settings required. This is different to the VirginWAP setting they provide for other phones but works just as well. They have two fantastic data deals - $5/50MB and $10/300MB, which is way better than the others (bar 3 of course). Of course, at GPRS speeds, it is small consolation, but better than nothing.

    I've tried two different combinations (including yours) that I've found on the net, like:

    APN: internet
    username: [blank]
    password: [blank]

    and

    APN: internet
    username: guest
    password: guest

    but I can't get it to work... any ideas?


    Cheers!
