    Turns off radio signal? Do you mean the phone can't make or receive calls?

    Have you installed anything from Cydia recently? If so, uninstall and try again.
    What carrier?

    Carrier: THREE

    Since first installed yes i have installed other bits, i have un-installed and reinstalled it myprofiles
    Its definitely turning the radio off rather than 3g. and i was pretty sure they were two different things. u dont need 3g to make a call.

    Be good if someone could test turning "3g" off and see if the same happens

    Some carriers require you to have 3G enabled, even if you don't have a data connection. Solo Mobile in Canada has that. Turn off 3G and you lose cell signal.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    I have used SBSSettings to disable data (3g) and sms, calls etc all work fine. So i dont think its that.
