Thread: Possible to turn off 3G and EDGE?

    Default Possible to turn off 3G and EDGE?
    I want to buy a 3g iphone from Fido (Rogers) but because of the cost I'm probably going to go without a data plan. Is it possible to cut of 3G and EDGE so it would be impossible for them to charge me for data? Most of the time a wifi hotspot is near so I can just use that.

    im not sure if there is anything for non jailbroken mods. i would contact them about it and see if they can turn off data and allow you to use the iphone without a data package. you might be able to but i doubt it since thats how they make their money. good luck man

    you can turn off the 3g in the setting for iphone 3g. but untill its jailbroken which should be soon. you would need boss prefs and then you can shut of edge and other things, but this depends if and when bigboss will port the app. if u dont want data or any thing why not get a touch

    Go in and turn off Data Roaming. Now you can use WiFi only.

    BUT this may not be the best solution. The option to turn EDGE off in v2.0 is not there but it is in v1.0 firmware.

    Just call Robbers / Fido and get them to put an internet block on your account. This will block any kind of activity over the cell network. If you do get any charges, they will take them off your bill.

    yes, they can partition your account on the HLR so that you have no internet access to the server... Just call them, although i know that T-Mo can do this but they wont because they tell you that you may need it so they can contact you...
