I currently have the Iphone 2g on tmobile. I have never bought the data plan on it except once which was for one month back in the summer (I got the $9.99 internet for 5.99 asking I wanted to try it out for a month since they didnt have the 5.99 tzones internet) Anyway after configuring the network settings for it to work It worked. Then it ended one month later not working anymore.
Well after I had to send my phone into apple and getting a new refurbished one, I didnt have any of my files on it and I have had this phone since september. Well I never tried to go on the internet without wifi since I just assumed it wouldnt work. Well about 30 minutes ago I was browsing the web and I noticed my wifi dropped for some reason but it still loaded the page. Well I just assumed maybe it had already finished loading before it dropped so I decided to enter a web page that was not already cached into my phone, and it loaded but slower.
I then thought to myself "maybe the phone is bugged and I do have wifi it jsut isnt displaying the wifi symbol." So I go and disable the wifi on the phone, and the internet still works but the pages still loaded slower than wifi. So I restarted the phone just assuming my phone was bugged and wifi was still disabled and what do you know, the internet still works. I decided to go to whatismyip.com to look at the ip address, and it is not my home one. So im assuming I have free edge? Maybe I have had it all alont I just never tried it. The only time I tried it was when it expired and I still had the networking settings it needed configured. I checked my tmobile bill online and nothing extra has been billed nor is the internet option added.
I have the myfaves 800 plan w/ unlimited texting for all the lines. That is the only thing I have on my plan. Does anyone else have a iphone on tmobile that could try this out to see if im not the only one?
