Configuring your iPhone for T-Mobile
posted @ 10:20 am in [ Fixing Things -iPhone -Mobile -Technology ]

My iPhone is on T-Mobile as the ex-owner wanted to keep the O2 number that came with it, and I have a corporate account with T-Mobile.

All works nicely, but obviously you want to configure your T-Mobile account to mimick the default iPhone account that it originally came with, so here’s what you need.

1. T-Mobile Web & Walk

You need to add the very reasonable £7.99 package to your account and wait a few hours for it to be activated, then you get up to a Gig of data a month (I believe) to play with.

2. Configure the EDGE settings on your iPhone

Settings -> General -> Network – EDGE

APN = general.t-mobile.eu
Username = user
Password = pass

et voila – off browsing we go when we’re away from the wireless network!
