    Ok guys, since no one wanted to helpme on here i had to search for day's looking for a "easy" TUT in how to get my new iphone working with the $5.99 T-zones plan.. so here's how..

    Note: this works for me a little slow but works ok here we go.

    -Download The Zip.(bottom of page)

    -SSH Into Your Iphone.

    -Go To /Private/Var/Root.

    -Put The Folder, "proxy.pac" Into that directory.(right click set to 0755).

    -Then Go To /Private/Var/Root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration.

    -There You will See A File Called "Preferences.plist".

    -Now Take The "Preferences.plist" From The Zip And Replace The Old One.(right click set to 0755)

    -Now Reboot Your Iphone-After Iphone Turns BacK On Turn wifi Off Then...

    -On Your Iphone Go To /SETTINGS/GENERAL/NETWORK/EDGE/.

    -Now You Will see "APN" "Username" "Password"

    -For "APN" Put wap.voicestream.com
    -For "Username" Put guest
    -For "Password" Put guest

    NOTE: THIS MIGHT ALREADY BE DONE IF SO LEAVE ALONE.

    -Reboot Device One More Time..

    Now your iphone should be able to load up a web page using T-mobile Edge

    One More NOTE IF THIS DOES NOT WORK, DELETE THE "Proxy.pac" AND THE "Preferences.plist" files and put them back in one more time that should fix it.

    Thanks

    So this allows you to use a 6 dollar phone plan?
    What firmware does it work on? Do you sign up for the plan on the web or what?
    Can you get text messaging with plan?
    Im a noob and dont have an iphone but thinking of getting one soon

    Tip...

    Ok this hack is just for EDGE. It has nothing to do with texting... what this hack does do is let you use you'r $5.99 internet plan from t-mobile.. wich lets you use EDGE which is internet anywhere you have singnal... Tip if you are going to buy the plan now its better off to call them becasue is go's through faster then doing it on the internet.. you will get a text in 1 to 2 day's telling you the change has been made to your account then you can do my hack.

    thanks

    Ablert..

    1) Does the iPhone need to be jailbroken or will it work with a new model straight out of the box?

    2) Do you have to pay for any voice services or can you sign up for just hte $5.99 EDGE/Internet plan?

    1. Yes it does have to be jailbroken, because you have to SSH into it.
    2. Yes you need to buy the $5.99 Internet plan it has nothing to do with any voice plan.

    Thanks, questions are welcome.
