Hello all,

Just doing a little bit of research I found a way to get the t-zones ($5.99) internet working without using the proxy.pac file. You will still need to modify the preferences.plist file though.

I am posting this to inform everyone of my findings, as this method seems to be just a tiny bit cleaner in overall configuration.

Procedure:

1) Uninstall or manually remove any previous t-zones proxy hacks.
2) Delete the proxy.pac file (not required).
3) Add the lines highlighted in red to the preferences.plist file. Mine was located at /private/var/preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist.

(Only modify the section with DeviceName "ip1")
<key>Interface</key>
<dict>
<key>DeviceName</key>
<string>ip1</string>
<key>Hardware</key>
<string>com.apple.CommCenter</string>
<key>Type</key>
<string>com.apple.CommCenter</string>
<key>UserDefinedName</key>
<string>com.apple.CommCenter (ip1)</string>

<key>com.apple.CommCenter</key>
<dict>
<key>AllowNetworkAccess</key>
<integer>1</integer>
<key>Available</key>
<integer>1</integer>
<key>Setup</key>
<dict>
<key>apn</key>
<string>wap.voicestream.com</string>
<key>password</key>
<string></string>
<key>username</key>
<string></string>
</dict>
<key>Version</key>
<integer>1</integer>

i'm not using wap.voicestream.com because i found it's too slow. instead i'm using the new one epc.tmobile.com. either one works but i prefer the 2nd one
