    I have unlocked my iphone for t-mobile usa and haven't been able to find the settings for edge. When I go to Settings >> General >> Network, the only options I have are Data Roaming, VPN, and Wi-Fi. I have also tried editing the carrier.plist (SSH to System >> Library >> Carrier Bundles >> T-Mobile_US.Bundle) to no avail.

    I didn't edit it because the AllowEDGEEditing tag was already there. Have been looking only for the past day trying to fix this issue and couldn't find any solutions that worked for me. Can anyone tell me how I can make the edge/apn settings show up on my iphone?

    Thanks ;)

    I couldn't find anything there that would help me. All I found was how to setup the Edge, but I don't have the settings to set it up. I may have missed something. If there was something on the site that would help, mind letting me know where? Thanks.

    What you're supposed to do with that site is:

    - Click continue to next page
    - Click set custom APN
    - Enter into the blanks your APN info... for T-Mobile USA, usually it's:

    APN: wap.voicestream.com
    U/N: blank
    P/W: blank

    Occasionally for some users the APN is internet2.voicestream.com or internet3.voicestream.com ....

    Then you click Download Custom Config and follow the prompts.

    I believe you are referring to http://www.unlockit.co.nz/ right? The site http://i.unlock.no/ takes me to some other site that doesn't help me. I'm looking for how to get the settings for edge to be displayed on the iphone so that I could edit it without wifi.

    The other option is an app that you can install via Cydia...

    But either way, this is something you just have to do once, so I don't see why using that website (yes, sorry, it was the .nz one) isn't a good option?

    I completely restored my iphone and the apn settings popped up where I expected it to be. I was planning to use http://www.unlockit.co.nz/ to get my edge to work, but I think messing around with the iphone so much.

    You have to visit the site I gave on your iPhone. I should've mentioned that.
