    Default wifi only so no HUGe bill?

    I am in canada, I want to get a unlocked iphone but I dont want it to be able to connect via cell data because I am scared of getting a huge bill.
    My question is, can I make it so it only connects via wifi? I basically want it like the ipod touch but with the phone part. i dont care about connecting to anything if it costs me for data, only free wifi.


    hope that makes sense.


    thanks

    As long as you have 2.2 firmware installed try the SBSetting app in Cydia.

    It allows you to switch on/off EDGE/GPRS/3G

    I was wondering if I can do this on a 2nd gen (2g) iphone?
    and can I manually update teh firmware on a 2nd gen iphone to 2.2?

    thanks again.

    sorry, last question

    is the only diff between the 2g and the 3g the data transfer speed? Do they both have wifi? Otherwise do they have all the same features?


    thanks again for all the replies.

    Minor point but 3G also has GPS for Google maps, but that isn't a huge reason to go for 3G IMHO

    call your provider and disable 3G and you'll be fine..
