    It is no longer there, since now it does nothing from I have seen.

    Use the new APN epc.tmobile.com

    Not entirely correct. iPhone users that have T-Mobile PrePaid (no plan) and have no data service are able to use the very limited T-Zones through the Proxy hack. T-Mobile PrePaid branded phones have this capability, so nobody is stealing a service for free.

    I have an iPhone 3G and T-Mobile Prepaid. Using the BigBoss TZones Hack, I am able to access a few websites (no e-mail) like CNN, ESPN, and ABC News. It's very limited but better than nothing. If I remove BigBoss's TZones Hack and change my APN to epc.tmobile.com, I lose access to the limited web sites that I had access to. iPhone T-Mobile PrePaid (non plan) users must use wap.voicestream.com and the TZone Hack.

    So I hope BigBoss adds the TZone Hack back into his Cydia repository. If it doesn't, does anyone have the DEB package so the TZone Hack can be installed through apt-get? I believe it is called tzones_2.deb.
