    Yes that's right! You can get free EDGE on your iPhone with these simple steps. Get it while it's free and working!

    Instructions

    FOR 2G
    1.) Settings -> General -> Network -> Cellular Data Network
    2.) Change "APN" value to "epc.tmobile.com"
    3.) That's it! Make sure you have wifi turned off and maybe give your phone a few seconds to adjust.
    Make sure "EDGE" is turned on in BossPrefs; if you don't know what BossPrefs is, this probably doesn't apply to you then.


    FOR 3G
    1.) Settings -> General -> Network -> Edge (
    2.) Change "APN" value to "epc.tmobile.com"
    3.) That's it! Make sure you have wifi turned off and maybe give your phone a few seconds to adjust.
    Make sure "EDGE" is turned on in BossPrefs; if you don't know what BossPrefs is, this probably doesn't apply to you then.

    After you get it working, go to safari and visit http://i.dslr.net/tinyspeedtest.html for a speed test and post your results here!

    Enjoy! :] (Don't forget to press the thanks button if you love me!)

    I have a pay as you go T-Mobile Plan. This does not work for me. When using Safari, I get a web page message stating "Your plan does not support this feature."

    I currently am not running Boss Prefs. Would this make any difference? I assume my Edge is turned on anyway since I see the E icon. Do you think adding Boss Prefs would make any difference?

    Edit: What is interesting to note is that in order to get that web page with the "Your plan does not..." message, my iPhone is accessing the Edge network to download that message page. So I am getting at least one page over Edge for free. LOL.

    Suddenly, two months later...

    That aside, T-mobile closed this little hole a while ago. It was opened when they switched over their addresses or something. Afaik theres no new way to get free data from tmobile.

    I'm brand new to this forum and RARELY get online for forums, posting, etc, but a search brought up this 'hack' to receive internet on my jailbroken/unlocked iphone 3G with the $50 Unlimited 'pay as you go' plan with tMobile....
    So I didn't read anything but the 'how to' and did it - IT is WORKING....
    Many people had weird results, and this is an OLD thread...
    But It's Nov. 18th, 2010 and I am JUST using this and it worked - I don't have a CLUE if I'm being charged for this, I hope not.
    . . But it's working all the same.
    So I guess the questions I have, which one could email me concerning...
    Am I getting charged?
    If not, HOW does this loophole work?
    Why are some users claiming they CAN'T get this working?

    Thank you muchly!
