    Exclamation Get the ROGERS or FIDO $7 Unlimited Surfing Plan working on your iPhone!

    So, its impossible to access wap.fido.ca on an iPhone and benefit from this unlimited package is it? Fido and Rogers deemed it impossible to access wap.fido.ca and goam.com from an iPhone because there is no room to enter a proxy IP. It is possible with a bit of clever modding. WARNING: This will allow you to access wap.fido.ca and goam.com from your iPhone. This is not to say that you will not be charged if (and we don't think there is) there is IMEI cross referencing going on.

    Enjoy.

    FIDO:
    Make a file called proxy.pac with the following text and save it to /private/var/root on your iPhone (SSH will help here):



    function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
    {
    if (isInNet(myIpAddress(), "10.0.0.0", "255.0.0.0"))
    return "PROXY 205.151.11.11:8080";
    else
    return "DIRECT";
    }


    Next, open up /private/var/root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist
    and edit where you see ip1 to read:

    <dict>
    <key>Interface</key>
    <dict>
    <key>DeviceName</key>
    <string>ip1</string>
    <key>Hardware</key>

    <string>fido</string>
    </dict>
    <key>Version</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    </dict>
    </dict>

    Save and reboot the phone.

    Is this legal, and will it land me in jail?

    Of course this is legal. You are simply adding a field in your phone to access the proxy's IP...

    information sharing is the whole point of hofo
    but i have to say, the OP's taking huge liberties with this post.

    Not only does it completely miss the whole IMEI enforcing policy of the $7.00 plan it will give first time readers, or those who haven't paid attention to the monstrous 40000 post data threads, incorrect and false product positioning.

    Every single iteration of the $7.00 UL data package has stated, Rogers / Fido devices only. Trust me, the iPhone isn't one of these phones.


    Users be warned, in case i wasn't clear enough

    So confusing

    And if things weren't confusing enough
    Rogers goes and posts instructions on their website on how to setup your Non-Rogers phone to use with the $7 on-device mobile browser.

    does that mean you have to use an approved phone purchased from rogers to use the $7 addon?
