    Default EDGE problems with 1.1.2 on Orange UK network (in Central London)

    Hello!

    I recently purchased a US 1.1.1 phone which I have successfully unlocked. After much playing around with the phone and several failed attempts, ended up following the following procedure which has worked twice perfectly:

    1. Restored 1.1.1
    2. Downgraded modem firmware
    3. Restored to 1.1.1
    4. Virginised
    5. Restored 1.1.1
    6. Unlocked 1.1.1
    7. Ran OktoPrep
    8. Upgraded to 1.1.2
    9. Unlocked using 1.1.2u anySim in airplane mode

    Whilst this has worked perfectly, I cannot (once using 1.1.2) seem to be able to use EDGE although the phone seems happy to connect via GPRS on the Orange UK network.

    Checked the Orange EDGE settings which seem to be fine:

    APN: orangeinternet
    Username: <blank> (don't enter anything)
    Password: <blank> (don't enter anything)

    When this did not work I started to follow some other threads I found online discussing MCC-MNC numbers and found out Orange UK uses 234-34 and 234-33. Using some of the information that I found I did the following:

    Going into the following directory:

    /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreTelephony.framework/Support

    created ORANGE_UK.plist

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    I also created some Symlinks back to the above file which were entitled:

    23433
    23434

    Apple seems to have created similar files for the other plist so this seemed to the logical thing to do.

    Even swapping the SIM over to the AT&T SIM and back to my Orange SIM did not seem to help activating EDGE.

    Can anyone help me?

    For the record, the MCC-MNN thread is located here:

    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=10965 although note that Apple made some changes to the directories with the implementation of 1.1.2

    Are you sure EDGE is not working, or just the logo has changed?

    Has fooled many people that one.

    I know the logo changes in 1.1.2, but unfortunately I don't get any E symbol at all and I know I live in an area with EDGE coverage.

    From what I understand, under 1.1.2, you get a blue square block when using GPRS and a blue block with a white shaded E when the phone is operating with EDGE.

    Also if I use YouTube, the iPhone reports to me that my connection is not EDGE and therefore it won't work.

    Done some more digging around and it seems that I have absolutely no problem with enabling EDGE with 1.1.1 - only 1.1.2 seems to exhibit the problem (i.e. no EDGE symbol and unable to access YouTube when on mobile network).

    Any ideas?

    For those of you looking for an updated carrier.plist file for Orange UK, here you go although be aware that EDGE still does not work.

    Code:

    Apologies for posting an EDGE/GPRS question in here if thats not the correct thing to do but I have just bought a UK iphone on 1.1.2. I have successfully unlocked it to O2 but I cant (even after scouring the forum) get conected, I get depending on where I am either Blue Square with E or without but either way I keep getting ...You are not subscribed to EDGE, I hoped it would still use GPRS but it doesn't ! I have tried both an O2 PAYG and an O2 Contract Sim the latter I know works with GPRS as its out of my Blackberry. People talk about SETTINGS/GENERAL/NETWORK/EDGE but I only have VPN, Wi-FI and Data Roaming - No EDGE.

    Any (constructive) suggestions would be gratefully recieved.

    Are you sure you live in a orange EDGE converage area? It seems that orange doens't provide EDGE in LONDON area!
