Thread: enabling EDGE with Orange UK

  1. #1
    Default enabling EDGE with Orange UK
    Hello!

    I recently purchased a US 1.1.1 phone which I have successfully unlocked. After much playing around with the phone and several failed attempts, ended up following the following procedure which has worked twice perfectly:

    1. Restored 1.1.1
    2. Downgraded modem firmware
    3. Restored to 1.1.1
    4. Virginised
    5. Restored 1.1.1
    6. Unlocked 1.1.1
    7. Ran OktoPrep
    8. Upgraded to 1.1.2
    9. Unlocked using 1.1.2u anySim in airplane mode

    Whilst this has worked perfectly, I cannot (once using 1.1.2) seem to be able to use EDGE although the phone seems happy to connect via GPRS on the Orange UK network.

    Checked the Orange EDGE settings which seem to be fine:

    APN: orangeinternet
    Username: <blank> (don't enter anything)
    Password: <blank> (don't enter anything)

    When this did not work I started to follow some other threads I found online discussing MCC-MNC numbers and found out Orange UK uses 234-34 and 234-33. Using some of the information that I found I did the following:

    Going into the following directory:

    /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreTelephony.framework/Support

    created ORANGE_UK.plist

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

    </plist>
    I also created some Symlinks back to the above file which were entitled:

    23433
    23434

    Apple seems to have created similar files for the other plist so this seemed to the logical thing to do.

    Even swapping the SIM over to the AT&T SIM and back to my Orange SIM did not seem to help activating EDGE.

    Can anyone help me?

    For the record, the MCC-MNN thread is located here:

    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=10965 although note that Apple made some changes to the directories with the implementation of 1.1.2

    Heya!

    Im having the same problem with Orange UK and EDGE.
    Did you sort it out? If you did, what did you do?

    Thanks a lot

    It seems to me that Orange Edge coverage is pretty patchy over the UK. Edge will not work for me from home but it does when I'm out and about on the road??
