    Default Edge settings for 02

    I am based in the UK and have an o2 contract sim card.

    I understand that there is no 3G/gprs in the iphone so that if you are out and about the only way to connect to the internet / features on the iphone ie. google maps, internet, utube etc.. is either to find a free WIFI hotspot or conect using EDGE

    i understand edge is only covered in 30% of the UK. I live in bedfordshire and went into N London today so i though that if edge was going to work anywhere it would work in london.

    Anyhow i could not connect to anything.. i even tried a free wifi hotspot which didnt really seem to work.
    the settings in the iphone for edge are
    APN: web.o2.co.uk
    username: faster
    password: web


    Are these the right settings?? I had an E icon on the top of the iphone but just didnt get any conectivity.

    Please can someone help or advise me

    Hi
    If you put "mobile.o2.co.uk" in the APN field, then pretty much anything on the next to you should be fine. I have "Password" on the other two lines and it works fine....London coverage is pretty good so far, but Edge is *very* slow indeed.

    BTW the "o" in "o2" is the letter, not the number

    i will give that a go.. ive changed it from web.o2 to mobile.o2

    from that link on the post above what the difference between o2 optismised and o2 non-optimised?

    so other than edge and wifi what other ways is there to connect to the internet? or is that it?

    Edge is GPRS+ (or GPRS updated). Carriers must add support to EDGE on their GPRS network.
    You can do GPRS with the iphone.
    EDGE (GPRS) & WIFI are the only ways to connect to internet.
    Also the settings depends on wether you are using contract or Prepaid.
    I used the payandgo wap settings and worked (the same settings i had on my SonyEriccson phone).
    EDIT: btw I think there are many questions not related to unlocking on the unlocking side of the forum (like this one)
