    Default Disable WAP in 1.1.1

    Hi everybody!
    Today I checked my carrier (Vodafone Italia) website and I found that there are about 5-6 euros on this bill of WAP connections. But I've never used wap, and I also removed all the information on the EDGE Settings (in General -> Network -> EDGE).
    Why does the iPhone always connect to WAP? Is there a way to disable it definitely?
    I tried with Services, but every time I restart the phone EDGE turns automatically on...

    Even though this is for ATT users, you should be able to edit the same file although I'm not 100% sure.

    I've already deleted all the information, but I used the control option in Preferences.
    But this doesn't work, since it seems that it still connects to EDGE also without APN...

    If you can wait a bit, my iPhone is arriving in the mail in a few days and I'm going to try to disable edge as well. Also, try going to http://www.modmyiphone.com and look around in the forums there.

    well, at the moment I'm using a little "workaround"... Since I've a PIN in my SIM, everytime I turn on the iPhone it asks me for the pin. I tap "ignore", then I open Services.app, disable EDGE and, when it's disabled, it asks me the PIN again and I unlock the SIM...In this way, no more charges on my sim... but it's quite boring...

    Exclamation fix

    I got the same $30 charge for using wap on my phone, and it never really worked anyway. I fixed it with a simple work around. I called my carrier ,Vodaphone and barred both wap and mms which don't work on Iphone anyway. Now the E for edge or wap is gone from my iPhone and so are the extra charges on my bill. Simple, no need for extra apps or turning anything off just one simple phone call and no more crazy bills. I would suggest you all try this first now my only Internet is through wireless.
    Good luck

    I'm using t-Mobil T-Zones on my 1.1.1 iphone, and recently when I went to check my APN setting, I noticed that there is no APN setting, but it's working anyway....
