    T-mobile tutoral for working carrier services for iphone

    Original post NOT FOR 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 http://www.modmyiphone.com/wiki/index.php/Carrier_settings_for_iPhone

    THIS WILL WORK FOR 1.1.1 AND SHOULD WORK FOR 1.1.2 ALSO

    Firmware 1.1.1 and T-Mobile on window
    Should be able to do the same on 1.1.2 but if you try make sure you backup
    your Services.plist if it works let Us know

    Ok i have a prepaid so i wanted my my carrier services to work

    To do this you need to go here to get the t-mobile numbers

    1. Find the one's you need
    2. Now ftp iphone here and get the T-Mobile "Services.plist "
    under /System/Library/PreferenceBundles/MobilePhoneSettings.bundle
    3.copy to desktop "MAKE A BACKUP OF THIS FOLDER AND PUT IN SAFE PLACE ON DESKTOP iIN CASE YOU NEED TO REPLACE IT WITH ORIGINAL"
    once you have done this make a second copy for safe keeping
    4.here it is no need to open the one you copy from iphone just put it in a safe place
    DOWNLOAD HERE THIS IS THE ONE I AM USING FOR MY PREPAID DOWNLOAD AND OPEN WITH NOTEPAD

    5.when you read the code you will notice lines which will tell you the what it is and the corresponding numbers

    <string>Show T-mobile number</string>
    <string>#686#</string>
    * YOU CAN CHANGE THE NAME AS YOU LIKE * like "Show T-mobile number" to" Its ME "
    not sure of the legnth of text you can use

    If you are not prepaid when you check the list of T-mobile numbers from link i provided
    simply change name to what you like likre if you are going to use #225# change "Show T-mobile number" to "check bill balance" as #225# is the number for to check bill balance etc

    If you are prepaid you can use mine or make your own screenshot of mine and more at bottom of post


    I edited a original by spkane from another website so props go to him
    and others

    Since i have prepaid i need to change the string numbers for my service

    6. you can check numbers to numbers in link i provided above
    7. Now Edit desired lines with names and correct numbers for T-mobile save as "Services.plist" to desktop and then place
    /System/Library/PreferenceBundles/MobilePhoneSettings.bundle
    replace the original
    "REMEMBER MAKE A BACKUP OF THE ORIG Services.plist IN CASE YOU NEED TO RESTORE IT

    restart and should work

    If this is to much work for you , you can just

    !. Tap phone on touch
    2. tap + on all contacts
    3.for name call it what it is if it is "directory assistance" then name it that
    4.now tap add new number
    5.add the number that you got earlier from the list of T-mobile numbers in this case 411
    and save

    Now get 411 go to phone /contacts and it will say " directory assistance tap it and thats it
    do the same for "check bill" /"pay bill and all you have to do is go to contacts and tap what ya wanna do and thats it .
