    Default Yellowsn0w - Tmobile USA - Is anyone elses Edge really slow??

    Yellowsn0w - Tmobile USA - Is anyone elses Edge really slow?? I'm using the APN: epc.tmobile.com and data is really slow. I also have a G1 and the Edge data is much faster. Any suggestions...?

    I have the same problem. On my 3G phone, egde is much slower than my old 2G phone with tmobile. I am using epc.tmobile.com as well. I used to have 120-150 K now I am getting 50-80 K with 3G. Don't know why...

    using iphonespeedtest.com I get 158kbps on edge with Tmobile USA on a 2G iPhone

    my wifi speed is 285kbps

    I dont have a 3G iPhone yet, but I dont consider Edge a reliable data feed, I only use it when I cannot get wifi. Some places and times Edge is fast enough to look something up, other times, its a total waste of time.

    I have the Tzones hack, pay 5.99 for Total Internet, and use epc.tmobile.com

    Were you using the "epc.tmobile.com" on your 2G iphone or were you using the "internet2.voicestream.com" ??

    You can't get the tzones package any longer. They have discontinued it. Only those who already have the plan can still use it. There new internet plans are $24 and $30

    I'm starting to think that it has something to do with the epc.tmobile.com APN. Internet2.voicestream.com will not even connect for me, and I think it's because I have the G1 Internet plan on my TMobile account. I wonder if I would get faster Edge speeds with the internet2 APN on the iPhone 3G.

    I use wap.voicestream.com for my APN and I have to Total Internet Plan which I believe is there highest one 20$ I think but Edge has worked great for me on the iPhone 3G
