Watch out unlocked Irish iPhone users on firmware 1.1.4, you might be leaking money

If you recently bought an iPhone or upgraded to 1.1.4 and are an o2 customer you might not realise that 1.1.4 has the settings for Edge built in and switched on. So basically you could unwittingly being forking out a fortune if you don’t have the 1Gig or 10Gig data option enabled on your account.

See, on a 1.1.4 firmware iPhone, you can’t get to the Edge settings under Settings/General/Network:

The solution is to install an app via called Boss Prefs which will allow you to disable Edge:

    Error Package download failed: untrusted server certificate!

    Thanks In advance

    Hey Guys,

    This might work for O2 users but under vodafone, it turns it off but then back on again, it asks for the sim pin and then comes back on again… tried this and another application called Services, under utilities does same thing…

    Any Ideas?
