    Getting 3g on a Google Dev 1 (G1)

    Hi-

    I'm new to the site, and I am glad to see that there are a few people using their unlocked G1s on CBW. I recently ordered a development phone from Google (an unlocked G1), and I should receive it in the next few days. I currently have a Motorola Razr with CBW without a text or data plan.

    I have read through a number of threads here and at other forums indicating that 3G isn't completely rolled out for CBW customers, but that some of you have 3G sim cards and are able to use your G1s at 3G speeds.

    Any tips on acquiring 3G service (and a 3g sim) for this phone? Did you tell the CBW rep that you need it for a G1?

    Thanks,

    Paul

    I had a CBW 3g Sim, but never got MMS to work with it. Also my none 3g speeds were real slow. I switched back to my older Sim and everything is working, MMS and 3g. Basically you don't need nor do you want their 3g Sim.

    Yeah, Cinbell's new 3g sim cards have a few "extra" instructions written to them which makes it harder to use customized settings for non-supported phones. The older sim cards have everything you need to connect to the 3g network and are more universal, in a sense.

    As for acquiring 3g service, you pretty much have to wait until it's rolled out in your neighborhood. The 3g service area had a sharp growth these past few weeks, but it's hard to tell where 3g will be available next. Keep in mind, the AWS band is 1700mhz and 2100mhz. These higher frequency bands don't penetrate or carry too well... and Cincinnati has quite a bit of hills and valleys.

    Yeah, basically to sum up what everyone else has said:

    If you have a G1 and Cincinnati Bell, GET A 2G (old + red on the back) SIM CARD!

    With the new 3g (blue on back) SIM cards, you get SLOW EDGE speeds and no MMS.

    3g is rolled out now in what seems like most places that I visit (except the 100 foot radius around my freaking house).

    When you get the phone you can either skip the Google login/setup or you can hit MENU and edit APN's. In the APN screen, delete EVERYTHING (by going into one and then hitting menu and delete...repeat). Then add 2 new ones. One called CBW MMS and one called CBW Web:

    Name: CBW Web
    APN: wap.gocbw.com
    Proxy: 216.68.79.202
    Port: 80
    Username: cbw
    Password:
    Server: 216.68.79.199
    MMSC:
    MMS proxy:
    MMS port:
    MCC:310
    MNC: 420
    APN Type: default

    Name: CBW MMS
    APN: wap.gocbw.com
    Proxy:
    Port:
    Username:
    Password:
    Server:
    MMSC: http://mms.gocbw.com:8088/mms
    MMS proxy: 216.68.79.202
    MMS port: 80
    MCC:310
    MNC: 420
    APN Type:

    These settings currently have EVERYTHING working for me.

    No need to delete anything, Just add the two new ones.

    it works!

    Thank you all very much. Just got my dev phone this morning and everything works using the apn info above. I have 3g speeds and a 3g icon in my status bar using my old 2g sim card as suggested.

    Oh, and I wrote this on my dev 1!

    I've noticed very slow EDGE speeds when using my 6263 in areas where I don't have a 3G signal.

    Everything is working great so far except SSL (https://www...) sites over the CBW network. SSL works fine over wifi, so I know it's not the phone.

    Any ideas about APN settings that might be relevant? Thanks for all the help so far.

    Update: I started monkeying around with the APN settings, and I found that if I modify my "CBW Web" settings that are recommended by cboy007 to remove some details that SSL suddenly works.

    I did not change the CBW MMS settings. Here are my current settings for the CBW web APN that appear to work for me:
    Name: CBW Web
    APN: wap.gocbw.com
    Proxy: <Not Set>
    Port: <Not Set>
    Username: cbw
    Password: <Not Set>
    Server: <Not Set>
    MMSC: <Not Set>
    MMS proxy: <Not Set>
    MMS Port: <Not Set>
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 420
    APN type: default.

    My guess is that by putting in a bare minimum of information the phone is able to negotiate settings with the network (download a profile from CBW). On the other hand, I am wondering if perhaps the device is caching and still using some of these settings even though I removed them, so I will keep you guys posted if this suddenly stops working.

    Thanks for the info Paul. I was always wondering why cboy007's WAP profile had specific IP's and ports. My hacked e730 just has the APN, everything else is blank, even the username. It's been that way for well over 2 years now too.

    I simply assumed cboy007's profile was so specific because the 3g network wasn't completed yet and all 3g traffic was being routed through that single proxy. Oh well...
