T-mobile G1 internet with 9.99 Tzones hack, 5.99 no more :(

Hooray! It works!
T-mobile doesn’t have the 5.99 tzones plan anymore. They upped it to a 9.99 plan. Don’t get rid of your 5.99 plan if you still have it!!! But the tzones hack still works. To get it working on your G1, check my post about getting the MMS to work without having a data plan here.
Then go into your test settings and change the data method to WCDMA preferred or unknown. If you get connectivity errors, you can goto settings and select ‘use only 2G’. This also saves aloooot of battery.

If you want to tether your laptop to use the internet from the G1 check my post here.

    Hey I tried this but setting the network to wcdma get reset everytime I check the 2g only box. Whatever I do I cannot access the internet.

  4. change the setting to unknown, instead of WCDMA. hopefully, it should work.

  5. BossColo Says:

    I’m hoping you can help me, because by god, I’ve tried everything. I have the 5.99 plan, and I’ve followed yours and every other instruction online to a T, but I still can’t get data access. All I get is “Internal error Access is not allowed for this user agent in (whatever website I’m trying to access)” Please help.

  6. HydTech Says:

    that happens sometimes, but very seldom. when you go into the testing, does it show its connected?

  7. BossColo Says:

    I have GPRS service: Connected.

    Also, when I run the ping test i get
    Ping IpAddr: Fail: IP addr not reachable
    Ping Hostname(www.google.com): Fail: Host unreachable
    HTTP Client test: Fail: Code: org.apache.httpmessage.BasicHttpResponse@43054dc0

    Under GSM disconnects:
    State:active ……..
    T-Mobile US,
    wap.voicestream.com,, http://mms.msg…../wapenc,, 8080, 8080, *

    I don’t know if any of this is useful, it just looks important.

    Also, now when I use the browser, I get


  8. BossColo Says:

    Another point of interest. I am switching over from the T-mo Shadow. The proxy hack works fine in there, and I can even switch back to it, and the proxy hack still works.

  9. HydTech Says:

    HTTP Client test should pass. and after state active, mine says connected at 2:43 PM and elapsed 9:46:04. and right now my preferred network is set to GSM only. use only 2G is selected. data roaming is also selected.

  10. I am having the same problem I get the error:


    and sometimes I get another error: something saying that client in not allowed access or something like that.

    Please help I am doing everything you say and still not getting it to work!

    • HydTech Says:

      dont know why some people are having this problem? for most people it works without a problem. can you ask t-mobile data department to remove the feature and put it back on? this helps for misconfigured problems.

  11. BossColo Says:

    I’m not sure that they can do that anymore. I’ve heard that if you offer the code TZUNL599, you can still get the 5.99 plan. I’ll try it tonight with a friend who manages a tmobile retail store. I’ll let you know.

  12. HydTech Says:

    let me know about the TZUNL599 code. I would gladly switch

  13. Hi! I have an iphone 3g unlocked and jailbroken with 2.2 firmware. I just got the phone and so I just added the tzones 9.99 plan.

Right now I am using epc.tmobile.com…all the others I tried wouldn’t even let me look at tzones homepage. PLEASE HELP ME!!!! : )

    I’m having the same problem as sid with the “when ever i try to use the browser it take me to the subscription upgrade required can u help me please” issue.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    • HydTech Says:

      same here, i think tmobile fixed the loop hole. Now the problem is that even when I use my motorola, it still doesn’t work.

  17. TGodbolt Says:

    I was about to buy a G1. Can anyone confirm that t-zones does work. if it does work for you, what features can you use and whats not usable with t-zones. Has anyone tried the epc.tmobile.com APN that works with windows mobile, iphone, and symbian?

    Thanks in advance to anyone that can answer my questions.

  18. How do I get this working on my iPhone?

  23. Ok guys this what i found out and i believe it is true. They changed the settings again after they found out that people are using it for g1 or something so it will never work now on the g1. so i canceled the plan. People if yours does work but not mms, dont keep changin the settings cuz thats what caused mine to not work anymore

    My question is, my husband has a g1, he is in Afghanistan right now, the fob he just moved to, hes not able to buy net service for his personal comp. they have a community comp-no cam. :{
    Im trying to see if he can use his g1 to connect. Would it even work in the Helmand area. Hope you can help. Thanks for looking

  31. i have the 9.99 tweb and after those settings it said, you can access your favorite sites while connected via wifi.
