    Hi, a noob here so be gentle with me!!
    Got my new unlocked to o2 uk iphone a couple of days ago :) its fantastic - am so pleased, am on o2 (well tesco actually:rolleyes:) payg. Have been reading around a bit (this is a great forum BTW:)) for info. Everything works on my phone except vvm and edge.
    Wifi is fine and surfing no prob until there is no wifi. I have read a bit about activating edge with APN (?) but when I follow given instructions I have VPN not APN and I don't know how to configure it. Can anyone help? I don't know what APN or VPN are:confused: Am not a mac user and find synching a bit confusing especially as I've had to enter all my phone contacts manually but but hey - its been worth it!!

    I also don't know what ssh is or whether is needs configuring.

    Any info would be sooooo gratefully received :)

    Problem activating the edge on my Iphone

    Hi Guys I am sorry but I am also having a similar problem with my phone except I am in Russia trying to use the MTC network and I cant get it to work. I am not very technical with this stuff and hope someone can educate me.

    Thanks for your time and help

    you set the APN in Settings/General/Network

    then you need to find the EDGE/GPRS settings for 02.... I saw a post on this forum with the settings - just do a search for EDGE settings, I'm sure you'll find it easily
