    hi there,

    i just updated my iphone 3g firmware today from version 2.1 to 2.2 and have a problem with EDGE. i am using an iphone 3g with t-mobile and a gevey sim and with 2.1 it worked perfectly. i upgraded to 2.2 using pwnage tool and everything works great, i can make calls and everything, however my EDGE doesnt work now. the setting i used last time which worked was wap.voicestream.com and this time it doesnt.

    any suggestions? tried restarting and that didnt help.

    let me know if you know a fix for this. i did not install installer and cydia.

    Try setting the APN to epc.tmobile.com

    This is what I'm using on my 2g 2.1. You do not need the tzones hack for this APN.

    this ended up helping:

    Loss of EDGE service on T-Mobile. You receive the message: "Could not activate cellular data network: you are not subscribed to a cellular data service." Press Settings, General, Reset, Reset Network Settings. Service should now be restored.

    then we put in "epc.tmobile.com" and it worked

    Yeah, T-mobile is rolling out a new APN (epc.tmobile.com)

    Web2Go (the replacement for T-zones) will be limited by bandwidth instead of ports in the future. If you go over the set amount of 100MB you'll be upgraded to the $25 or $35 plans (depending on if you're on the $10 or $15 W2G plan)

    I believe T-zones users will be grandfathered in at $5.99 (or $2.99 for the old, old tz plan) and unlimited, but we won't know. If someone is on the T-zones still and using epc.tmobile.com, once you go over 100mb could you tell us if you get a txt from T-mo telling us that you've gone over your quota? I'm pretty sure everyone will be grandfathered in but I'm 100% certain.

    I call you a HERO!!!

    Thanks. I was panicked that my JB and UL phone with prepaid data was done. It's back and happy after just that simple reset.


    ** The error message is Not Subscribed to Cellular Network so I'm putting it here for others to find when they search.**

    THANKS, it worked for me too! All I did was input epc.tmobile.com in the network settings.

    Settings > General > Network > Cellular Data Network > APN = epc.tmobile.com

    didn't need to reset anything

    So I tried the "epc.tmobile.com" and it doesn't work. Tried resetting it too.
    I called and had T-mobile set up the 34.99 unlimited text and internet over 5hrs ago.

    Yet what's weird is when I get on safari it brings me to a tmobile website saying I don't have the webtogo thing and i need to sign up for the 34.99
    ..yet i did already lol.

    See the phone I had before this iphone was the gravity. So I dunno.
    If you guys suggest I call tmobile, I have no idea what to say.

    So any suggestions?

    the wap works for me when i put it in, but UBER slow
    before i had them set up the unlimited i had the 100MB plan

    yeah i can't have it running this slow

    so i just tried the internet2 and that works, but slow. (internet3 doesn't though)
    um. so is epc suppose to be fast?
    and if so, i still need help connecting to it lol

    I'm having this same problem, my EDGE was working fine with t-mobile 19.99 plan and all the sudden one day- I started receiving this message- "Could not activate cellular data network: you are not subscribed to a cellular data service."!!!!!!
    SO, I'm thinking maybe I went over my 100mb???
    I have my apn set to epc.tmobile.com and still nothing but that annoying message! arg.

    oh and I just upgraded to the unlimited 34.99 plan and still same issue even after following instructions for resetting network settings.

    someone, please advise.
