Noob proof guide for disabling EDGE! (at&t/cingular)
This guide is for everyone who is under at&t or cingular and wants to disable their edge.
Is this permanent?
No, if you want to use edge again call at&t and just tell them you want to activate edge again.
1. Get your iphone and call this number 1 800 335 4685
2. Enter your ten digit phone number for example 702 381 0000
3. Press 3
4. After u press 3 you will be connected to a representative
below is a script that you can say
Representative: hello my name is ____ may i ask for your first name and last name please?
you: hi my name is _________
representative: ok may i ask for the last 4 digits of your social security pls
representative: thank you how may i help you today sir?
you: uhm i am going out of the country next week and i was wondering if you could dusable my edge?
representative: ok sir hold on let me do that for you
you: ok tnx
representative: while im doing this sir may i ask to what county your going to?
you: uhm to china
representative: and may i ask for what phone this is?
You: Blackberry(if u domt want to let them know its for ur iphone)
representative: ok sir its done you need to call back if ypou want to activate it again
You: ok tnx bye
There more or less the conversation would be like that
After you call the deactivation will take effect after 3-4 hours or less

Alternately, you can disable EDGE access on your iPhone by editing one of the preference plists. Search for "disable edge" in the forum here for more complete instructions on how to do this. This way you can re-enable it at any time without having to call AT&T or your provider again.
