5 Steps To Disable iPhone 3Gs OS 3.0 GPRS or Edge Connection

Update: For Maxis users who installed it and worked previously, but currently it stops working, read the latest post here

Previous we’ve mentioned how to disable iPhone 3G GPRS or Edge connection in 5 steps. However, it only works for iPhone OS 2.0.

If you’ve upgraded your iPhone to OS 3.0, the previous tips to disable GPRS or Edge connection will not be working anymore because “Cellular Data Network” setting can’t be found under “Network” setting.

Thus, there’s no way for iPhone OS 3.0 users to configure APN username and password.

No fear. We’ve found an effective solution to disable GPRS or Edge connection for iPhone OS 3.0 with 5 simple steps.

(Note: This solution requires Internet connection. You may use GPRS, Edge, Wi-Fi or 3G connection to make this works. It only requires very minimum data from Internet)

  1. Run “Safari” on your iPhone.
  2. Visit iPhoneNoData.com

  3. Tap the “Disable Edge/3G
  4. Tap “Install
  5. Tap “Install Now” to confirm

That’s it! No more auto GPRS/Edge connection when you accidently tap on “Safari”.

You can double check this function by tapping “General” and scroll down to view a new profile as below print screen.

You can also simply uninstall it to enable your GPRS/Edge/3G connection by tapping “General – Profile – Remove”

  23. Trollar says:

    Seriously, guys your thinking why would anybody want this?

    Some people use prepaid cards and in such case you have all your credit ran out when the phone has been making connections without a permission, without a WiFi network.

    One thing for me is that I dont want my phone to be radiating those cancer-causing microwaves when it’s in my pocket, like from 5 centimeters from my testicles.

  24. hello there and thank you for your information – I’ve certainly picked
    up anything new from right here. I did however expertise some technical issues
    using this web site, since I experienced to reload the website many times previous to I could get it to
    load properly. I had been wondering if your web host is OK?
    Not that I’m complaining, but slow loading instances times
    will sometimes affect your placement in google and could damage your high-quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords.
    Anyway I am adding this RSS to my e-mail and could look out for a lot more of your respective interesting
    content. Make sure you update this again very soon.
