    To answer your questions, and give you directions:

    1. Yes, I added the Unlimimted mMode to my plan for $25/month. I currently am on the old Nation 800 (w/ bonus 100minutes), w/ $9.99 North American Package. I subscribed to this package back in April, 2004.

    2. I too thought mMode would be slower, since mMode is technically GPRS. When I unlocked my iPhone, and set up the EDGE settings, I get the "E" indicator at the top-right.

    3. Lastly, and the most important, how I set up my EDGE. It took me 35mins to figure it out, but it comprised of only one webpage of information: http://www.modmyifone.com/forums/sho...6244#post86244

    In short, I will describe it here, and will assume you know how to WinSCP into your iPhone, and that you have installed OpenSSH:

    Step 0:
    From the Installer, I went to UNLOCKING TOOLS --> EDGE Settings fix. This little Utility will make turning ON/OFF your EDGE, WiFi, Bluetooth and SSH very easily.

    Step 1:
    Even tho the above URL I pasted states to TURN OFF YOUR WIFI, do not do so. I left mine on in order to be able to WinSCP into it.

    The file to modify is:
    /var/root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist

    In this file, search for "cingular", you will find this section

    ----------------------------------------
    <key>apn</key>
    <string>wap.cingular</string>
    <key>password</key>
    <string>CINGULAR1</string>
    <key>username</key>
    <string>WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM</string>
    ---------------------------------------

    replace
    "wap.cingular"
    with
    "proxy"

    Delete
    "CINGULAR1"
    and
    "WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM"

    so this section looks like this:

    ---------------------------------------
    <key>apn</key>
    <string>proxy</string>
    <key>password</key>
    <string></string>
    <key>username</key>
    <string></string>
    ----------------------

    Step 2:
    Next, do a search for the next section (close to the top of the file):

    <key>Interface</key>
    <dict>
    <key>DeviceName</key>
    <string>ip2</string>
    <key>Hardware</key>
    <string>com.apple.CommCenter</string>
    <key>Type</key>
    <string>com.apple.CommCenter</string>
    </dict>

    add following section after it.

    <key>Proxies</key>
    <dict>
    <key>ProxyAutoConfigEnable</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    <key>ProxyAutoConfigURLString</key>
    <string>file:///private/var/root/proxy.pac</string>
    </dict>

    ----------------------------------------
    Now we are done with this file.


    Step 3:
    Next step is to add the "proxy.pac" file.

    Copy text below to Notepad and save it as proxy.pac (make sure it does not have .txt in the file name)

    --------------------------------------------------
    function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
    {
    if (isInNet(myIpAddress(), "10.0.0.0", "255.0.0.0"))
    return "PROXY 10.250.250.54:8080";
    else
    return "DIRECT";
    }
    --------------------------------------------------

    Step 4:
    Then upload to iPhone at this directory

    "/private/var/root"



    Step 5:
    WinSCP to and modify:
    /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.carrier.plist

    Find the following section in com.apple.carrier.plist:
    ----------------------------------------
    <key>apn</key>
    <string>wap.cingular</string>
    <key>password</key>
    <string>CINGULAR1</string>
    <key>username</key>
    <string>WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM</string>
    ---------------------------------------


    Change the information from the above to:
    --------------------------------------
    <key>apn</key>
    <string>proxy</string>
    <key>password</key>
    <string></string>
    <key>username</key>
    <string></string>

    ----------------------

    I did not reboot the phone afterwards. I just disconnected my WinSCP, and using SERVICES, turned off my WiFi. and turned on EDGE.

    I then went to a webpage that I had never been to before, and tested the EDGE network out. Google maps works best.



    And there you go! Please let me know how yours turned out.

    var

    Hi Var,


    Thanks for the guide.

    I once modified these settings in my 1.0.2, but never signed up. Now I upgraded to 1.1.1, so it is back to factory.

    I am on a 1000 minute anytime, nationwide, nighttime/weekend free, for $39.95 from like 2002.

    Let me know how you like the Mmode.

    Not sure if I will get it yet. Is there a contract, or can you cancel anytime? Did they ask you what kind of phone you had?

    Cheers for the info,

    Hi kkanuck,

    I have good news!

    So after using the $25/month unlimited mMode for up to 5MB ( I had the Services app installed to turn off EDGE - and incase I would get hosed with usage, I could afford paying the 5MB pay per use if I was charged that ), I have verified in my statement of account that it is in fact UNLIMITED!

    See here:



    So to answer your question in how I added $25/month, when at&t asked me what device I have, I told them that I am buying an unlocked Samsung Blackjack from eBay, and that I wanted the unlimited mMode on my EXISTING ACCOUNT, without changing anything. I told them I just wanted the addition of the unlimited mMode, and that's all.

    The rep kept telling me that I wouldn't be able to use the network or its speed as efficiently, but I rebutted saying that it didn't matter.

    Anyhow, he finally added it, I verified it in my account.

    Once I received the iPhone, I proceeded to unlock and utilize the proxy setting as described above in my previous post. I had thought I would be utilizeing GPRS speeds, but it is in fact EDGE.


    As for your last question, I do not believe there is any contract. I have been out of contract for over a year and a half now, and adding an unlimited mMode service has no bearing on your contract, as it is currently grandfathered.

    Regards,
    var

    Default at&t blue plan SMS charges

    hmm... something doesn't seem to be right.

    I pay an extra $4.99/month for 100 text messages.

    From this printscreen from my online bill:


    It looks like I have used NONE of my included text messaging, and have used 16 text messages that are charged.

    Not quite sure why that is, but I'll be scouring the forums.

    Regards,
    var

    Keep me posted var on what happens.....


    So you are paying $24.95 extra per month, and it is edge, not Mmode, even though that is how it is "worded" and it is unlimited, no contract? I do not think it includes text message, as that is a different link to add......

    Exclamation Edge can be lost upon reboot however . . .

    iPhone FW: Ver 1.1.1 I have AT&T Blue and Mmode

    I have done the mods indiacted on this thread. EVERYTHING WORKS FINE

    Calls, youtube, Edge WiFi all fine.

    From time to time an application will lock up the iphone (not unusual) of course a lock-up requires a reboot (two button) when iphone reboots it looses the code that has been modified (full explanation below) A code re-edit is required, then Edge will work again fine.

    Q. Has any one experienced this ?

    Q. Any solutions ?


    I wonder if a small program could be done that when this happens you start the app via an icon, it then makes the changes and prompts for a reboot

    Below is a detailed example of the issue:

    Staring with the original config:

    key>apn</key>
    <string>wap.cingular</string>
    <key>password</key>
    <string>CINGULAR1</string>
    <key>username</key>
    <string>WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM</string>
    ---------------------------------------

    replace "wap.cingular" with "proxy" Delete "CINGULAR1" and "WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM"

    so this section looks like this:

    ---------------------------------------
    <key>apn</key>
    <string>proxy</string>
    <key>password</key>
    <string></string>
    <key>username</key>
    <string></string>
    ----------------------

    Reboot

    All Edge now works (proxy.pac and the added code never change)

    but the:
    ---------------------------------------
    <key>apn</key>
    <string>proxy</string>
    <key>password</key>
    <string></string>
    <key>username</key>
    <string></string>
    ----------------------
    changes back to:

    key>apn</key>
    <string>wap.cingular</string>
    <key>password</key>
    <string>CINGULAR1</string>
    <key>username</key>
    <string>WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM</string>

    That is when you have to SFTP and manually chnge it to:

    ---------------------------------------
    <key>apn</key>
    <string>proxy</string>
    <key>password</key>
    <string></string>
    <key>username</key>
    <string></string>
    ----------------------

    It is a very inconvenient situation when traveling.

    Thanks to al that continue to contribute solutions !!!
