    i believe if your edge settings are empty or incorrect, preventing you to connect to edge, that you essentially would be using the phone with edge 'off'

    There's no app to turns the EDGE off, however, you can just replace a file to disable the service.

    S1: Download the file Download preferences.rar, upload your files and earn money.

    S2: Use WinSCP & connect to your iPhone (username:root, pw:alpine), and just simply replace the file on \private\var\preferences\SystemConfiguration\ then reboot the phone

    S3: Succeed~~~ however, the file will "fake" the wifi ip address. Nevermind, go to settings>wifi>(arrow your AP)> press "forget this network" then re-join the network again, problem solved!

    It works for me, hope this help~

    Anyone have instructions / experience with the same procedure using Mac based software to connect to the iPhone? I'm sorta new at this and have only used the original pwnage tool to jailbreak/unlock the 1.1.4 software.

    Another thought - has there been any news, or is there anyway of checking when BossPrefs would be out for the iPhone 2.0 software / Cydia installer? Cause I might just wait until then if its not going to be too long.

    You best bet is to wait, just make sure you don't use email/safari without WiFi that may trigger edge, or you will pay....

    There is no APN settings with EDGE, because i am using the 1st GEN iphone with a official 3G carrier in australia. SO i haven't even configured EDGE and it works. It's pissing me off.
    Iphone Love... I dreamed of a iphone before it was out..

    I could have sworn I had BossPrefs on my 2.0.0 AND 2.0.2.... So shouldn't it be available to download for you? Or did you mean 2.1?

    Also, if the Edge toggle in BossPrefs doesn't work; go to the button (I think it is More) you can disable "Use New EDGE Toggle" and you can try the old way.
