take screen shot of the APN setting post in here. Also change the data to Edge it will help.
Most of the time if I can't send pic I change to E and it sent.
On the Note if you dont have the option to set to 2G speed, only way to do is dial *#2263# and set to GSM

My APN is the same as what T-Mobile says on their FAQ page, tried the switch to 2G and it still didnt work....

I received my i717 from CanadaGSM late yesterday afternoon. I am seeing mostly 3 out of 5 bars with occasionally 4 on T-Mobile at my home in Dallas, TX. In the several tests I ran with Speedtest, I've see 1500 kps down / 90 up with 3 bars and 2500 kps down / 250 up with 4 bars. I have also seen as high as 5000 kps down /600 kps up, but that has been rare. I've had no dropped calls (one call today was about an hour) and I was able to get on with my phone right away. I've tweaked no settings at this time. I haven't checked battery life as of yet but I can say it is much better than my Nokia N900.

I did find that their GMail e-mail address has been entered everywhere to download BusyBox from the Market, so I've needed to change all of that. I wished they would have noted that in a short set of instructions included in the package. All the included accessories were included and the plastic protector packaging on the phone was all in place.

So far, I'm quite happy with the phone. Paying a premium for a phone with the modem flashing already done was a huge time saver for me.

For me the phone was cheaper than any local dealer and saved me the effort to root and flash.

Rogers would have been $700 + taxes, 1 month service and a $35 activation fee + however much $ to unlock.

Im a happy camper.

I bought my rogers from bestbuy @ 649 with month to month contract, called in the next day, canceled the contract, paid my month, and voila.
