FIdo billed me $574.75 for 11.495 KB, funny thing is I only use my iphone with WIFI, and as far as I remember I blocked the data service a couple of years a go, also I've had my iphone since Dec, so why charge me now? does anyone know anything about this?

I was charged 120 dollars of data and I only used WIFI BUT I remember I install swirlymms app and set up my edge for Fido but the app never worked and I forgot to disable the EDGE settings and play 1 song with IRadio untill I realized It was using edge(2 mb).
Make sure you go to your edge settins and disable edge or just to be
100 % ,delete the last 1 or 2 letters of your APN under settins/general/network/edge.

Make sure you tell them that you had disable your edge for this very same reason.

Ok, guys, I just spoke to a FIDO supervisor,, they argue that the data usage was legit and after 20 minutes talking to the guy he agreed to give me only %25 off the original charge, Im so freaging mad, anyways for all of you out there, just call fido and ask them to put a block on your account for the fido network connection, for some reason one of the apps I installed its connection trough fido, I think is swirlyshit.

$574.75 for 11.495 KB
THAT IS HUGE !!!!!
In South Africa we get charged R2 (ZAR) / MB, which works out to be about 26c (US) / MB which is quite steep for us!
So $50 per megabyte !!!!!
THAT IS HUGE !!!!!
It would cost me about R23 ($3.05) to download the same amount of data as you did!
P.S. Why is with all of those $25 for unlimited data plans? Why don't you get one of those? ****, after only 500 KB of data you would break even!!! ;-)

listen it is your edge even though it is blank in your settings when ever you lose wifi for even just a second your iphone automatically tries edge but in most countries you have gprs so it will not have to have anything under edge settings because gprs does not require these settings. rather what you need to do is go into installer and find bossprefs and download it. next find it on your springoard open it and switch off edge and let that be it never touch boss prefs again once its set and you will have nothing to worry about.
(by the way im on vodafone in italy and i had the same problem but this fixed it and now i dont lose all my minutes in just a couple of hours.)16gb iPhone4 black
If I helped you in anyway please hit thank you.

Thank you gpost2. It worked like magic. I just have one more question please, can I actually put an image there instead of the writing?

Installed 114 Compatibility patch. ( skip this if your on 113)
Installed the regular version Customize 1.21, reboot system, make sure it runs.Then uninstall.Next.
Installed Customize 1.21 custom(2) from repo below. Reboot system, make sure it runs.
Customize 1.1.3 custom version (Its now called Modded Customize 1.0)
Note, most sources in the repository still install the images into root instead of mobile.
You will still have to move everything from:
* /private/var/root/Library/Customize to
* /private/var/mobile/Library/Customize and
* /private/var/root/Library/DockSwap to
Also, the Carrier Images DO work. However the option to change it will not show up until you add in a
Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png and a FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png into
/System/Library/CoreServices.SpringBoard.app To do this,
1. download a package that includes carrier images.
2. Rename a matching pair of images to those named above and
3. place them into the said folder.
I also put Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png and a FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png in
/system/library/carrier bundles/unknown bundle.
Then used MIM app (makeitmine) changed carrier text to Ipod and voila.
I can now change my carrier logos within Customize 1.21 custom.
I'm on Fido in Canada, this is what I did.
Yes I too had Fido charge me 49 bucks for data charges. I usually have the edge settings blank. But one time my friend wanted to try it out with his sim card since it was demo line. But I forgot to change the settings back to blank once I put my sim back. I too use only wifi but somehow like the other poster mentioned its still sends data. I turned it off only 1 1/2 day later. Didn't think anything would charge, but, blammmmmm. 49 bucks. sux
I had spoken to Fido rep but he was rude & condescending. A superivisor then confirmed I was outta luck and had to pay.
I had them deactivate my internet feature for edge. Just to make sure no more charges.
Be careful. @ 5 cents/kb it adds up fast.
Cdn data plans suck.

well on Customize apparently you can but i used MIM and just changed it to AT&T, and then went into customize and it wont change it to an image, but maybe if you uninstall MIM then customize will do the image thing im not sure.
