    I bought the T-Mobile SIM from Straight Talk, not knowing it wasn't as easy or good as getting the AT&T SIM. I unlocked the phone (iPhone 3GS) and got the calls to work and texts to work, however, the data is on EDGE. I know 3G isn't compatible with the T-Mobile SIM and all that junk, but I can't get anything to work properly, it's way WAY slow and timesout and etc. Facebook doesn't even work, instagram, speedtest.. nothing will load. Am I just **** out of luck and need to order an AT&T SIM.. or can I change some settings to get this to work properly.

    My APN settings are as follows:

    Cellular:
    APN: wap.tracone

    MMS:
    APN: wap.tracfone
    MMSC: http://mms.tracfone.com
    MMS Size: 1048576

    How does the phone work on wifi is it faster and what iOS are you on. If the phone is faster on wifi and your TMOBILE is slow I would consider getting getting an att sim I saw on Walmart site that they had some left but it was a while back. Also do you have all your cellular data set correctly. eBay might be another choice for picking up a att sim or Craigslist..
    Edit-I was looking at some setting's you could try,another person having same difficulties with a t-mobile sim,
    You didn't post setting's for the proxy,this one,stated that it was working,
