If you purchased one of these iPhone clones (lately coming out in plus and mini versions, like the i9+, the i68+, and the mini i68), then you've probably been frustrated if you've ever tried to access the internet. In this tutorial, I show you how to set up the Internet on your iPhone clone for T-Mobile
Haven't Bought a Fake iPhone Yet? ... Then Don't
Before we get started, let me say that I am not recommending that anyone buy an iPhone clone. They are a lot of trouble because you will get no support at all (except for random articles on the internet like this one). Also, the factories that produce these phones are located in China and do not provide an 800 number to contact them, and they do not have any repair facilities in the United States (so far as I can tell). Therefore, I recommend you buy phones from reputable manufacturers like Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, or Apple -- preferably, buy a phone through your service provider (e.g., T-Mobile).
But if you already have one of these fake iPhones, then I hope this tutorial helps you get your internet working.
Beware of Unexpected Internet Charges
Oh, and one more thing. If you don't know what you're doing, you can end up with a cell phone bill that is several hundred dollars more than you expected. In general, you should be okay as long you don't spend too much time on the Internet, don't watch any videos, look at a lot of pictures, or download more than one or two games games. Still, you shouldn't do much on the Internet unless you're familiar with how it will charge you. You should call your carrier for more information about this.
Okay, Let's Get Started...
Well, to set up the Internet on your i68 or sciphone or whatever, you'll have to do two things: (1) create a GPRS data account, and (2) create and activate a WAP profile.
Create a GPRS Data Account for T-Mobile
Create And Activate a WAP Profile for T-Mobile
And that should be all there is to it. If you live in the United States and if T-Mobile is your cellular service provider, then you should be able to access the Internet now. However, if you have any problems, please check out the troubleshooting section below.
When I try to connect to the Internet, I get the error message "GPRS Not Subscribed."
SOLUTION: Click here.
When I click on WAP, I get an empty screen or the error message "Please Wait" for few seconds and nothing else.
SOLUTION: Make sure that you have a SIM card in the phone.
Well, I hope that this tutorial helped somebody out there. Please feel free to leave comments or questions.
