5 Steps To Disable iPhone 3G GPRS Or Edge Connection
Update: For iPhone 3Gs OS 3.0 users or any iPhone that has no “Cellular Data Network” setting, get the solution at our latest post.
Undeniable iPhone 3G is the greatest creation I have ever seen. This intelligent phone has all the funky but useful functions to cheer your life up.
iPhone is smart enough to auto access Internet through either 3G, Wi-Fi, EDGE or GPSR. However, if you’re holding an iPhone 3G in Malaysia like me and you’re not a 3G user yet, you might need to disable your auto connected GPRS connection due to its expensive data rates.
Whenever an Internet service is loaded, data will be transferred automatically through GPRS whether you like it or not. Therefore, I have found a trick to disable the access to GPRS network on my iPhone with just 5 simple steps.
- Tap Setting icon
- Tap General
- Tap Network
- Tap Cellular Data Network
- Tap APN, Username and Password field
Simply type in some words so iPhone will not pass the correct values to service providers (Digi, Maxis or Celcom). You will receive a message that says "Unable to Connect to the GPRS Network" whenever you accidentally tap on online tool icons.
In order to access Internet through GPRS, just delete the fake information will do. Enjoy!
