This is a discussion on configuring N1 with tmo's $10 unlimited web for phone service within the T-Mobile forums, part of the Android Phone Carriers category; Originally Posted by quick Originally Posted by macwanj I don't know why this did not work for you. The only thing that comes to mind ...
Called Google support, they were not allowed to tell me if the phone was originally purchased full price or subsidized. I asked if there is any difference in the subsidized version vs. the full price as far as settings, or anything else, they no exact same device, software and settings. I asked if T-mobile somehow registers the subsidized phones IMEI numbers, they said no. Can't really trust all the info is correct. Calling HTC now lets see what they say.
HTC said that the phones are the same, nothing different software/settings wise, exactly identical. I asked if the phone was originally purchased as subsidized phone, or full price phone. The first rep said it was full price, because it did not show t-mobile in her system, it said EXEDEA Inc., which comes up as some HTC related company. However talking to the Nexus one dept, they said there is no way for them to be able to tell if it is subsidized or not, because everything is the same etc..
The only strange thing that I got from the second rep was the the "shipping address" was T-Mobile... What could that mean? Either all T-Mobile 3G Nexus ones show that in their system, or the person that originally bought the phone worked for T-Mobile?
Maybe the previous owner (purchasing full price) added the $30 internet plan on this phone, which T-Mobile has record of in their system of the IMEI, to identify that this is a Nexus one? Thus, why it gets detected with "Subscription Upgrade Required" (using the default APN). However why I cannot connect at all with internet2.voicestream.com... I don't get, its like its blacklisted or something.... ?? I don't even get an 3G symbol, and nothing on the phone can connect to the internet at all.
I eventually gave up, tried everything... Somehow T-Mobile can tell that this is a smartphone, and is blocking it, maybe its something specific to my area. Anyway I ordered the $30 plan for now... ironically I still can't connect to the internet!! They say it takes up to 24-48 hours for it to start working...?? Bah.
New here (signed up to post this actually)
but there are two unlocked N1 versions
Two versions of the device are currently offered. Both versions support four GSM radio frequencies (850/900/1800/1900), but the supported 3G/UMTS bands will differ depending on the version selected. When ordering, you'll be able to select either of the following devices:
- 3G coverage on networks that use the 850 MHz, 1900 MHz, and 2100 MHz frequency bands (recommended for use on AT&T in the US)
- 3G coverage on networks that use the 900 MHz, AWS, and 2100 MHz frequency bands (recommended for use on T-Mobile in the US)
In addition, the Nexus One will deliver 2G/EDGE speeds on GSM networks and also supports WiFi.
These cover most major GSM mobile providers worldwide; however, if you're unsure of the bands supported by your mobile service provider, please contact your provider directly prior to purchase. Also remember that voice and data coverage, including both 2G/EDGE and 3G coverage, are dependent on your specific mobile carrier's network and coverage areas. Check with your mobile carrier about the availability of voice and data services in your area.
In other words you got the one that picks up ATT's 3G is my guess
Doesn't solve your problem but atleast this clears some smoke
Hi everyone Sweet post btw. On to the issue. I have gotten the $10 plan to work, but after I did this I could no longer get updates for the My account app. I'd figure, well lets just switch it back to default apn again to see if its just that problem. Turns out that wasn't the problem, so I didn't really worry about cause I can just check online and just changed my APN back to the modified one. Internet still worked on my N1 no problem and still had all services. Here is where the problem begins. When I log into my tmobile with my number and pass, I get error messages for everything. My plan, data usage, etc. It just says "Sorry, this information is currently unavailable. Please refresh the page or try again in a few minutes." I was wondering, is anyone else having these problems? If not, will I have to call up t mobile and will I have to reset the APNs again?
Hey guys when I'm trying to do this, do I have to do Razr? Can I do Samsung Highlight instead?
Froyo 2.2 Stock
Is it possible to use this unlimited web plan along with a prepaid voice option?
I get the impression that prepaid and plans use different SIMs.
