T-Mobile's UK customers using the network's own Pulse Mini handset are finding 3G is an impossibility, despite a week of complaints.

At least they got one thing right...

Had a similar issue with Nexus One on T-Mobile PAYG
And the issue there was T-Mobile sent out the incorrect APN settings - which should be "general.t-mobile.co.uk"
Ditto ... Nexus One on O2 PAYG
The APN settings they gave me were wrong. Eventually got it working by using the iPhone settings.

Slight but very important correction
T-Mobile APN should be general.t-mobile.uk and definately NOT .co.uk
