    Default How can I turn off Edge on 1.1.4???
    Hi guys, I upgraded, jailbroke my iphone with ziphone over the weekend. I had 1.1.1 with 4.02.13 before and i was quite happy. All applications were working and it was quite a stable system. I now upgraded to 1.1.4 and have been struggling with the system. The most annoying thing is that EDGE turns itself on automatically. i tried to turn it off with SERVICES and BOSS PREFERENCES but it turns off and then within 5 seconds of me leaving the settings it turns itself on again. How can i change that? I am on an unlimited plan, but dont want it to use edge when i am downloading installer apps. Any ideas? anything i can do with some app? How can i change settings for Edge on 1.1.4 anyway? i cant change them in General settings anymore.I would just disable it there then (wrong password or so) to ensure that the phone wont use edge.

    not sure why Boss Prefs doesnt work for you on 1.1.4, works fine for me.

    have you tried just writing 'disabled' for the APN in the edge settings?

    how can i access the apn settings? On 1.1.1 i had them under general Settings/Network, but they are hidden in 1.1.4, isnt it?

    you go to settings/general/network/edge. but there should be an easier way without erasing the correct apn

    is there any update about this? i cant turn off edge with BossPref or Services. I also dont see settings/general/network/edge options.

    nevermind. turns out using BossPref works, but Services always shows that Edge is on. The Edge icon still appears in the status bar, but I cannot connect to anything. So stocks, weather or safari all dont work.
