VPN Configuration on Cosmote 3G prepaid
Δημοσίευση 20/06/2009 - 16:16
I am visiting Athens from overseas. I have a iphone 3G (unlocked) and inserted a Cosmote sim card. I am able to make calls but I cannot perform any internet based services (safari, gmail, google maps) whether I use wi-fi or 3g .
I think the problem is the vpn configuration reset when I changed networks. What is the correct VPN configuration for Cosmote sim card?
Please reply in English. Thank you for your assistance.

You shouldn't have any difficulty connecting via WiFi
It is likely that 3G does not work with prepaid SIM cards, only with contract
But, try these APN settings
However, I'm pretty sure you cannot access 3G via prepaid SIM card. You need to have a contract.
In order to access 3G via prepaid SIM card you must replace a config file which requires jailbreaking first. Plus, the charges are way too high without a contract

OS for iPhone is 3.0 (7A341), Modem firmware 04.26.08
Actually I just noticed the Settings->General-> Network-> Cellular Data Network option is missing.
Under VPN is says "NOT Configured" and when I turn it "ON" it provides me the option of L2TP, PPTP or IPSec,
Under each option there are the following required fields;
Plus some other security options.
Under "Proxy" on the same page, it has auto detect option which asks for a url.
If you read the following link talks about the VPN resetting after switching networks.

As sepsis, said, though you will not be able to use internet via 3G, unless you replace this file. After doing that (if you have the will) there's a data plan about 40 mb costing 4 EUROS. Personally, I do not think 40 MB are enough for use with the iPhone, but, anyway, it is your choice.

Assuming I jailbreak my iphone, how do I ask for the 40/4E data plan in Greek (I can actually speak some Greek)?
Also I couldn't find the cosmote settings at the link you provided. Can you please post them here?

You have to tell them, though, you own a different cell, like SE W910i.
There's another way, which involves a second phone. You just put your sim card on it and activate it from the WAP Site of Cosmote via the phone browser.
