Found 12th Dec 2008
I have just gone through the process of jailbreaking my iphone 3g - as per the instructions here iphone-hacks.com/200…ws/ and trying to get into cydia I get 'network error' and then 'unable to load (no internet connection)'.
Have I done something wrong?
Help please!

Are you connected to your internet wirelessly?



We have wireless, but it never seems to connect to it. And the 3g data isn't working either now.
Actually, it does 'see' the wireless and connect but I've never been able to download anything via it, even from the apple app store.
I'm not making much sense...what I mean is that whenever, before the jailbreak, I tried to download a 'big' file from the apple app store it said I was not connected to wifi and needed to connect my phone into itunes.

Thats nothing to do with the jailbreak then its your network are you using a contract sim?

But I get nothing except an error from cydia - a network error

Does the sim have credit?

Yep, £13.99. I'm going to dig out the sim instructions, I seem to remember something about the phone being set to contract and needs to be changed to payg...or something like that...can't really remember, maybe it's that (I have nooooo idea though!). I so hope this gets working, so many apps I want to try

No luck, I changed the APN and still get 'network error' this time it says 'Unable to load (timed out)' but only tries for half a second.

I can still make calls though.

Also the apple app store loads and can connect to the 3g.

Any ideas? I have tried updating cydia, the updates they said were necessary, they said they were complete but when I go back it says the updates still need to be done. I'm confused. Help much needed - pretty please!

I had this on my Iphone but I just need to re input the APN settings for vodafone and then it worked a treat, are you certain that you have entered the correct apn settings? (sorry if it sounds like teaching to suck eggs, not meant to!!) hope this helps

are these the settings that you have?
APN address (PAYG): payandgo.o2.co.uk
Username : payandgo
Password: password
Session type: Continuous / permanent
Authentication: Normal
Security: Off
Port number: 9201
again hope this helps

plus if you try and download an app over 1mb (i think) you can only get it over wifi or itunes(with pc). Smaller apps are downloadable over 3g.

Thanks guys - it's wokring now, hurrah!
I reinstalled it, and made sure I had the right APN settings - scotty the ones you gave me are great as I've thrown away/lost the instructions on the sim pack, silly moo that I am.
The one thing now I'd love to know is does anyone know the address of a good source I can use with installer or how I get games with cydia - I've got it but have no idea how to use it now :oops:
