Thread: Disable GPRS / Enable Only EDGE

    Default Disable GPRS / Enable Only EDGE
    Hello Everyone!

    I am trying to do something. <I did a search and can't find a soulution>

    First My iPhone is Jailbroken...

    Where I live (USA) I am near two cell towers. The one (not AT&T) has ONLY GPRS and the other is an AT&T tower and it has EDGE.

    Here is my problem:

    My iPhone will sometimes lock onto the GPRS "ONLY" tower and ignore the AT&T tower. When it does this I have a much slower GPRS data speed.

    The GPRS tower has a much stronger signal in my area so my iPhone tends to default to the GPRS tower instead of the faster AT&T EDGE tower.

    I want to find some way to disable the slower GPRS and FORCE my iPhone to use the Edge only tower even though it is a weaker signal.

    Any help is greatly appriciated

    Please let me know if my message is not clear or you need more specific info to answer my question

    Thanks Again

    GPRS on the iPhone, thats news. I thought the iPhone could only get EDGE or Wifi. As for these "towers" I've never seen them in the UK. Wudn't it just be easier AND cheaper to use wifi

    Nope. It actually will connect to GPRS (unfortunately for me)
    It will show up a just a blue box without the E.

    I do use Wifi when I can. It is not always available and when it is it is usually locked or private

    Thanks for the replies. Still searching for an answer.
