Okay so I called at&t to cancel my iphone 3g data plan saying I don't have the iphone anymore while I was still using the iphone. My friend did the exact same thing and his 3g icon was gone. WHile I did the exact same thing, the E appeared as edge. I don't have the edge or 3g plan either. When I use the wireless, it uses the edge instead and now my bill came up to 144 dollars just usnig the internet!!!! My friend however, it didn't charge him anything for his internet. He doesn't have the E icon on his 3g iphone. I am using version 2.2. Someone please tell me how to get rid of the E icon.

i've had boss tools/pref for a while now, but I never understand how to use it. I don't see it as a icon anyhere in the summerboard either.

call att and have them block all data to your phone. If you don't want internet that will work. That way, you don't have to keep checking to ensure that edge is off.

If you turn on airplane mode it will shut off the cellular antennas and it will only allow the wi-fi to be active. If you want something a tool that is great for toggling Edge, 3g, GPS, Wi-Fi, and a few other features on and off, all of you should check out sbsettings. If allows you to swipe your finger or touch the top of the screen with two fingers at a time and will bring down a menu that can have toggles that you set available right away. It has all the same features as bossprefs and more. If you are interested in fast toggling, especially when the iPhone should switch to Edge from 3G but still holds onto the signal, then this tool is for you.
