just an update, the card i was using had a black mark on it, so i believe it was the normal speed? the high speed one (has red mark) doesn't work for me. The phone just says "no service".
Got my virgin-sim replacements last week.
Updated to 2.2 via pwnage.
It's working perfect on T-Mobile US
So far, virgin-sim is the best solution available.
With Virginsim is the carrier selection menu enabled?
I've tried a rebelsim and it isn't (flashes up briefly when airplane mode is disabled); but there's a video of a yessim unlock which shows the menu... interested in buying a virginsim and I'd like to know if it'll let me select carrier (useful when roaming!).
having trouble with my virginsim. the edge connection turns off after a day or two and i have to restart it several times to get it to turn back on. or it just turns back on by luck. i'm on t-mobile usa.
Have you tried enabling DATA Roaming?...
I had to enable data roaming to get it to work perfectly.
Once I did that, I never lost EDGE.
data roaming is always on. i figured out the problem. anytime i lose service and then get service again, edge is gone. i have to take the sim out and put it in another phone for a few mins then put it back in the iphone.
