    Default Can't disable GPRS, no matter what I do

    Hey there, I have a 1.1.2 unlocked (from 1.02 original) iPhone and am using it on the New Zealand vodafone network (EDGE is not support, though GPRS is).

    Whenever I connect to wireless and try and go online, it seems the phone prefers GPRS over the wireless connection, and ends up draining all of the cash from my prepaid account (internet on phones is very expensive here).

    I have data roaming set to off - still happens.
    I have put in fake EDGE settings - still happens.
    I have installed services app and disabled EDGE - still happens.

    It seems none of the current solutions kill the GPRS. What's worse is that when I run out of cash in my phone account, it continues to try to use GPRS rather than the wireless, and so nothing loads. I've only had this problem recently as I returned to New Zealand, in other countries it was fine.

    Any ideas? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

    I rang vodafone and put a bar on data and mms on my prepaid plan now I have no more annoying charges. Only runs wifi and no edge or GPRS icon. The data bill I got in the first month was stupid! The wifi takes at least 30 secs to turn on from standby and in that time the iPhone always chooses GPRS. I think it was designed like that to save battery and create bigger bills which make apple a bit more scratch. With data barred the phone is much better using wifi.

    Did you restart after making the changes in the services app?

    So just to clear things up... I'm on 1.11, I've edited the plists, and I've totally disabled edge. I don't want to use netservices or itoggle, I just want to totally disable edge/gprs. I want to update to 1.12. Disabling edge/grps is still possible on 1.12, right? After updating to 1.12, when I reboot the phone, my plists won't be wiped out will they? Many thanks and Happy Holidays!
