    I turn on 3G, and that was what I got.
    I did surf the web a lot faster.
    The thing is I am in San Diego, but the server was in WA.
    3G icon, of courses wasn't showing.
    In Hong Kong, my *simed iPhone surf at high speed with the 3G icon in 3G mode, when I switch to the 2G network, it surf much slower in the EDGE speed.

    I can see the "E" icon on your picture, which mean you are using the slow EDGE for internet, which is faster than GPRS, but much slower than 3G HSDPA which theorectically is 3.6M in iPhone 3G.

    I guess your operator do not have 3G signal , or no 3G HSDPA there. You have turn on the 3G mode, but if the 3G network is not available, the iPhone will select the 2G network automatically. You better check with your operator in your location to see if 3G network that match the iPhone 3G frequency is available there.

    Or may be your *sim does not support 3G network at all. The *sim will lock down your iPhone to 2G network to cheat the network & the *sim user as well.

    Ask your operator which phone model can use the 3G network, then I can check what frequency this phone can support to see whether the frequency supported is same as iPhone 3G.

    Only by testing & comparing with other *sim, we can find is there any room for improvement in VirginSim's high network search speed , EDGE & GPRS setting etc.

    Virgin Sim
    I recieved my virgin-sim samples today... the high speed one and the normal one. The normal one will not fit properly into the iPhone... might have to shave my sim down a little bit... I'll try that later. The high speed one fits perfectly, but the 3G iPhone does not detect a sim when I use it. I reboot and I just get the message "No SIM card installed."
    FYI: I am using a 3G on US T-Mobile
    Firware 2.1
    modem firmware 02.08.01(the one from 2.0.2)
    I have the 3G OFF
    data roaming ON

    Has anyone that recieved samples of virgin-sim gotten it to work?
    any suggestions?

    Do not shave your SIM card. Shave the IC chip with 2000 grade sand paper, or lower if you dare. I've had the same issue with the normal speed ones. It's a manufacturing, not design, defect. The chip does not seem to be bigger, but the legs are not soldered into the adapter as much as the red (fast ones).

    Try cleaning your SIM card with alcohol. I've had the same issue. One of my T-Mobile sims was not detected, the other was. I'm not sure why.

    That picture looks suspicious though. It's from http://www.speedtest.net, and it requires Adobe Flash Player, and Safari on the iPhone does not have the flash plugin.

But i was told that they sent me the wrong samples anyhow, so i still have hope in the next ones.



    I noticed that too while testing the Universal Sim, but it's an activation problem.. If you have a legitly activated phone iTunes gets into 'Connect to iTunes Store' loophole. The problem was solved using either the Airplain mode, or an pre-activated OS.
    Maybe they sent me the wrong ones too, cause Im having the exact same issues.**See my post above** Did you ever get it working? Or did they replace them?

    Try cleaning your SIM card with alcohol. I've had the same issue. One of my T-Mobile sims was not detected, the other was. I'm not sure why.
    UPDATE: I shaved down the IC chip. And now that it fits, the normal speed Virgin-Sim works like a charm so far.
    Phone calls IN/OUT: working
    SMS IN/OUT: working
    Data 3G(not availible on US Tmobile
    Data EDGE: working(using t-zones hack)
    GPS: Working(took about 2 mins to register blue dot and is not very accurate as blue dot move a little even while I am stationary, which probably is no fault of the virgin-sim but )
    Note: Picked up network as soon as I slid in the card. No dead zones in my house so I cant comment on signal recovery just yet... but Ill be in the hospital in 2(plenty of dead zones there) days so Ill let you know.
    When toggling airplane mode ON/OFF, phone will not regain signal until phone is rebooted.
    (Premature First Impression & ease of use/installation) Initial Verdict: PASS
    I will update regularly on my experience

    Will try cleaning the sim card and attempt to use the high speed virgin sims at a later time.

    In my case, a brand new T-Mobile sim did not work. My abused, gutted, cut, sanded sim worked. By worked, I mean, signal found. No stuck issues with either.

    SIM connectors are very hard when new. Even SIM cards are hard to remove and inserted. The connectors will bend SIM adapters. The solution is to insert/remove the original sim card 20 times or more until they get lose. Then the adapter should be inserted. No more bending issues.

    Default Auto-roaming Test on SIM Hack

    Anyone tested on auto-roaming for different sims solutions? I have tested on Rebel SIM for roaming to Malaysia (using Singapore SIM card) and not very successful. My phone is AT&T locked.

    It works only from Digi EDGE network and not Maxis or Celcom. For Digi it works on the cell where is has obtained the network access, when move to new cell, it shows No Service sign. Still not a good solution.

    Please let me know your test if available.
