    I know this might not be many folks in this situation. I extended 3 months of unlimited medianet after finding out AT&T was not going to extend medianet for Pay as you go customers, which I have on my unlocked iPhone 2G. So my medianet is set to expire on Feb 12, 2009. However, as of 3 days ago, all iphone EDGE internet connection started working intermittently and then completely stopped working. :(

    Does anyone else still have medianet and did this happen to them? I checked and when I call 611 it still says medianet is set to expire on Feb 12th. I'm wondering if AT&T is somehow blocking medianet from working on iPhones. If so, then perhaps when Medianet runs out, I won't even be able to use the 5MB plan that I was planning on getting. That would force me to a real iPhone plan or off of AT&T entirely.

    I would call AT&T but I assume the first question they would ask is what type of phone I have and they probably won't support Medianet for iPhone since it's not supposed to used with iPhone.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

    ATT Edge stopped working on unlocked 2g 3.1.2

    How did you get it to work? I added a custom apn by installing

    This message was from a year ago, but I think what I did was to create another APN, as you indicated you did. Found this on another website:

    "However, as this story was going to press, hackers have identified the root cause of the change. iPhone OS 3.0 uses a different, specific AT&T APN (connection server). This APN is routed specifically for iPhone devices, and is separate from the existing APNs (wap.cingular and isp.cingular). By using Apple’s iPhone Configuration Utility, and then emailing yourself a configuration with the change back to wap.cingular, service appears to continue working."

    So I downloaded the Configuration Utility and made another APN file that I ran on my iphone.
