T-Mobile Data Plan Woes on iPhone 3G?
Got a problem of my own this time that I can't seem to solve. Donated my old 3G to a buddy of mine who is using T-Mobile and got him jailbroken and unlocked on it with no problem. He's added the $9.99 unlimited web plan and according to T-Mobile's website and all other data, the service should be active. The problem is that when I disable wifi and attempt to browse over EDGE, I am just redirected to the web2go upsell page which tells me I need to call in to change my subscription.
I've searched the forums here (of course) and have searched elsewhere and have received a LOT of conflicting information. It's worth note that I do not care about MMS, my buddy does not have the MMS plan. Here are the things that I have read and tried:
1) There are posts from 2008 and 2009 stating that the $5.99 T-Zones and $9.99 Unlimited Web plans will work if you use the APN setting of either 'epc.tmobile.com' or 'internet2.voicestream.com'. In both cases, these refer me back to the web2go page asking me to upsell.
2) There are posts from 2010 saying that the $9.99 Unlimited Web plans will work but I need to use 'internet3.voicestream.com', but this as well refers me back to the web2go page.
3) There are some posts from 2008 claiming that it's not possible to make the $5.99 or $9.99 plans work on the iPhone and that you will continue to get the upsell prompt until you purchase the $24.99 unlimited data plan for smart phones.
4) Olethros once posted that you could use UIFaker to solve this issue on a post on hackint0sh a while ago, but I can't find any other information on UIFaker or how it would apply to the situation, every search for it refers me to UAFaker which I don't believe applies to the situation.
In any case, with all of the conflicting information posted out there, I was looking for some clarification because I can't seem to make it work but am seeing posts of people with the same set-up being successful.
