T-Mobile U.S.A. GPRS/EDGE, ISDN, and WAP settings

This is a simple collection of settings for use with the T-Mobile (formerly VoiceStream) U.S.A. network. I have used these settings to configure my own GSM mobile phones and other devices such as PDAs and laptops. They may or may not be accurate at a given time and are compiled here in the hope that others may find them useful.

I have no affiliation with T-Mobile other than being a customer for several years.

T-Mobile GPRS settings (T-Mobile EDGE settings)

T-Mobile GPRS/EDGE settings for terminals (e.g., phone handsets). Some items are possibly Nokia-specific. I have found the authentication type can be either Secure or Normal. These settings should be useful for T-MobileWeb users.

                APN: wap.voicestream.com
         IP address: 216.155.165.050
        Data bearer: GPRS
           Username: [none]
           Password: [none]
Authentication type: Secure
Connection security: Off

APN is the GPRS Access Point Name.

T-Mobile GPRS/EDGE modem settings

T-Mobile GPRS/EDGE network settings when using a device as a GPRS "modem", that is, when "tethered" to another device. Examples include connection via Dial Up Networking (DUN) Bluetooth profile, or via Universal Serial Bus (USB). These settings should be useful for T-Mobile Internet users.

                APN: internet2.voicestream.com
           Username: voicestream
           Password: [none]
        SMTP server: myemail.t-mobile.com

APN is the GPRS Access Point Name.

Users of T-Mobile's Virtual Private Networking (VPN) Internet option should substitute the following APN:

                APN: internet3.voicestream.com

T-Mobile ISDN settings

T-Mobile ISDN settings for terminals (e.g., phone handsets). This is an ISDN dial-up number for WAP use only. Some items are possibly Nokia-specific. I have found the authentication type can be either Secure or Normal.

     Dial-up number: +1 913 244 0821
     Data call type: ISDN
    Data call speed: 14400
         IP address: 10.168.200.50
        Data bearer: GSM data
           Username: wap
           Password: [none]
Authentication type: Secure
Connection security: Off

Apparently T-Mobile does not currently support Wireless Transport Layer Security (WTLS) for secure WAP transactions.
