    Hello and I want to say, GREAT SITE !

    1st of all I have a unlocked 1.1.1. otb iphone which makes calls great on my old charter plan $99/unlimited calls "which I don't want to cancel"

    I just added the mmode unlimited plan for $24.99 and have read that I need to change values and place them back into the phone ?

    When I go to "settings" - "general" - "network" I have "wi-fi" turned off but I see no edge setting, just says VPN "not configured"

    Back to this code I need to change values in, how exactly do I go about this ?

    Any guru's with a little time to spare for an old blue friend ?

    Heres a quote from ngejung

    old at&t blue mmode settings on iphone
    I got the "old" AT&T blue mmode working on my iphone

    Here are the steps:

    You basically need to modify one file and add a new file.

    *** Before you do anything, turn your WIFI OFF on your iphone *****

    the file to modify is
    /var/root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist

    In this file, search for "cingular", you will find this section

    ----------------------------------------
    <key>apn</key>
    <string>wap.cingular</string>
    <key>password</key>
    <string>CINGULAR1</string>
    <key>username</key>
    <string>[email protected]</string>
    ---------------------------------------

    replace
    wap.cingular
    with
    proxy

    Delete
    CINGULAR1
    and
    [email protected].

    so this section looks like this

    ---------------------------------------
    <key>apn</key>
    <string>proxy</string>
    <key>password</key>
    <string></string>
    <key>username</key>
    <string></string>----------------------


    then find this section, (close to the top of the file)

    <key>Interface</key>
    <dict>
    <key>DeviceName</key>
    <string>ip2</string>
    <key>Hardware</key>
    <string>com.apple.CommCenter</string>
    <key>Type</key>
    <string>com.apple.CommCenter</string>
    </dict>

    add following section after it.

    <key>Proxies</key>
    <dict>
    <key>ProxyAutoConfigEnable</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    <key>ProxyAutoConfigURLString</key>
    <string>file:///private/var/root/proxy.pac</string>
    </dict>


    Now we are done with this file, next step is to add a proxy.pac file.

    copy text below to Notepad and save it as proxy.pac (make sure it does not have .txt in the file name)

    function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
    {
    if (isInNet(myIpAddress(), "10.0.0.0", "255.0.0.0"))
    return "PROXY 10.250.250.54:8080";
    else
    return "DIRECT";
    }

    then upload to iphone at this directory

    "/private/var/root"

    after finish this, DON't DO anything else, reboot the phone

    You are done!

    BTW: I found the proxy ip address setting from here

    http://forums.wireless.att.com/cng/b...hread.id=12670

    and it works for me (I am in NorCal).

    Good luck to those fellow AT&T blue users!

    You need to ssh into your phone and edit the texts strings with a text editor.
