Solutions to Disable iPhone 2G/3G/3Gs GPRS or Edge Connection (For Maxis Users)
Previously we’ve mentioned on how to disable iPhone 3G GPRS or Edge connection in 5 steps and 5 Steps To Disable iPhone 3Gs OS 3.0 GPRS or Edge Connection.
However, configured profile which set by iPhoneNoData won’t be functioning anymore for Maxis users after Maxis upgraded their Maxis service from version 4.0 to version 5.0.
The upgrade causes the settings on the iPhone for APN settings are not editable and it will be directly activated by Maxis.
If you’re not planning to get an iData or iValue plan from Maxis to solve this problem, here’re 2 solutions to disable your iPhone 2G/3G/3Gs GPRS or Edge connection.
Solution 1: Call Up Maxis
This is the easiest solution for people who don’t want to jailbreak their iPhone:
Just call up Maxis service centre, talk to the technician and request them to disable your 3G/EDGE/GPRS for your phone number. It will take up to 1-2 hours to complete the whole process.
The only disadvantage for this solution is you’re not able to receive or send MMS since there will be no more GPRS connection on your iPhone.
In order to enable your 3G/EDGE/GPRS back, just call up Maxis service centre and ask them to do so.
Solution 2: Jailbreak iPhone and Install SBSettings
- You can jailbreak iPhone 3.1.2 firmware with blackra1n RC3. Read the post here.
- Install SBSettings through Cydia.
- Customize the toggles that should appear in SBSettings.
Bear in mind that SBSettings will be running in the background, thus it will consume more battery.
