    $99 Unlimited Voice AT&T Charter Plan On iPhone

    Does anyone have the the old AT&T charter plan? It was the original AT&T Mmode $99 unlimited voice and $24 unlimited data plan that has not been offered for more than 5 years. I am not sure what version the SIM is, but it is GSM and the SIM I have will even connect to the current AT&T 3G 'UMTS/HSDPA' using a ExpressCard in my MacBook.

    I have just unlocked my iPhone using the GeoHot method, and Calls / SMS work GREAT! However when I try to use the EDGE network i.e Safari/GoogleMaps/Youtube, it says "Cannot connect to EDGE"

    I know there is supposed to be a APN setting, but I do not have that in the General/Network settings.

    I show the blue square 'E' next to the network logo.

    Help

    .... sounds like you need the 'old' ATT APN settings; not the new ones.

    Haven't checking in on this forum in a while....I too have the $99 unlimited minutes plan, and refuse to give it up! I'm still using an old AT&T Wireless SIM; are you saying it's possible to software unlock the iPhone so that my AT&T Wireless SIM will work? Or is the GeoHot method one of the "SIM clone" tricks?

    edit: NM, the "GeoHot method" is the hardware soldering one (well, according to the blog you don't have to solder any more...) I'm still waiting for a proper SIM unlock that doesn't require any hardware modifications.

    that is definatly what i am personally waiting for, is the software unlock. I ran out like a nut when the press release was announced about the 299 for the 4gb and immediately snapped one up at the Att store. I managed to get the last one so the agent said. I am eager to hack it and start this whole ordeal but i have it still in the packaging. I kinda want to wait to see how this is going with the software unlock and whether or not i should find somone in the chicago area that is williing to confidently perform a hardware unlock for a reasonable price. I too also have a former ATTWS plan i like to use the iphone with.

    Another blue customer here. Can anyone confirm that those mmode settings will work on iPhone? Also, I don't currently have mmode service but it looks like the website will allow me to add unlimited mmode for $24.99/month. Will this be sufficient?

    Well as soon as the sw unlock comes out for the iphone then i will be unboxing it and setting it up. Until then, those are the settings that i had that worked on all my other phones i dont see why they wont work on an iphone. It wont be the same setup or format to follow but all the information to set it up and give it a shot is there.

    Try these instructions if you have an old (original) AT&T Wireless SIM:

    Still waiting for confirmation from someone...in theory, however, it SHOULD work.

    I don't understand your question, Elfreshcuh, and typing in all caps isn't necessary.

    but I think the answer is yes, provided you use Jailbreak and activate the iPhone using the method I linked to. It will allow you to use any AT&T SIM, not just the one that came with the iPhone.
