    the blank APN won't work with CSU, only fbband. It's what I use on my iPhone. And it's the only setting you need to put, username/password should be blank.

    That was actually the first thing I tried once I confirmed my 3G connection's been activated. Afterwards I even rebooted the iPhone but still can't connect.

    Ignore the Edge connection. I also tried this in a place with strong 3G and got the same results. Just showing you guys my settings.

    Maybe someone can refer me to a person or place who can assist me? Sun's pretty adamant about not being able to help with iPhones.

    I tried inserting the SBW sim to my iPhone first gen but when I tried browsing, I'm getting the same error.

    Any settings I need to configure?

    Maybe someone can help.

    On my globe-issued, globe postpaid iPhone 3G running fw 3.1, I have the Internet Tethering 'option' under Settings > General > Network.

    However, on my (other) sun postpaid iPhone 3G running fw 3.1.2, the tethering option isn't there. Any ideas? Thanks.


    EDIT: problem solved. thanks, PhilMUG (by way of an analogous thread bearing the solution).

    I just got my Sun postpaid SIM for my iPhone 3GS (Factory unlocked). I can't seem to get the 3G symbol to show up in the home screen. Any help? People seem to have found a solution, but I can't find how they fixed it.

    I used to browse on my phone (using Sun Broadband) effortlessly. I just put the sim on and instant internet but NOW, not anymore. I wonder why .... :/

    Is there an app that let's you disable the internet connection via 3g? Instead of removing minternet in the settings. In winmo for example, there's an app called noData that can disable internet access. Is there an equivalent app that can do this?

    enable tethering on you iPhone, connect your iPhone via cable or via bluetooth. tethering will be enabled automatically.
