    Hi
    I have a Blackra1n jailbroken/unlocked iPhone 3G.
    I have just finished my contract with 3UK and moved over to T-Mobile.

    When I first turn on my phone, turn 3G on/off or activate/deactivate flight mode, I often get very good 3G signal for a good few minutes.
    However, after a while, I fall down to GPRS for no reason at all, my 3G signal was fine so I don't understand why it does this.

    Any ideas?

    N.B T-Mobile UK use compatible bandwidths for 3G unlike T-Mobile America.

    reset network settings? Also, I heard that once your contract is up, u can call ur service provider in the UK to unlock the phone for u. I am not really sure about this.

    Also install blacksnow RC2 thru cydia to see if that fixes those issues.

    Update

    Hi both,
    Thanks for your advice...
    Sadly, I have taken most of the steps you have advised.

    I have done an entire full reset and it still has not resolved the problem and I was wondering if it had more to do with settings rather than a fault considering, I wiped my entire device.

    Hope you can help!
    Thanks!
    Joseph.

    Outcome

    So,
    After 3 resets and a ton of work, I simply discovered that the signal is just crappy.

    Oddly, my Nokia E51 picks up 3G fine and so does my iPhone for a short while, but it simply knocks back down to GPRS after a few minutes because T-Mobiles signal is so patchy.
    I am just unlucky I guess!

    However, with the new Orange & T-Mobile merger within 18 months, it can only get better right?!

    Thanks anyway!
    joseph.
