    Thumbs up Missing EDGE Menu FIXED!! mac guide for now!

    This has only been party tested as i dont have all necessary simcards with me but im almost sure that this will work. (it has in all my tests SO FAR)
    I tested/wrote this because i could not find a solid guide to fix my EDGE problem on an unsupported sim, It is still a work in progress any comments appreciated (insults aside!!!!)

    Guide ;-
    Install SSH (follow an online guide!)
    connect via CyberDuck or WinSCP
    Open System/Library/CarrierBundles
    Now open Unknown Carrier
    Change carrier.plist -
    Download PlistEditorPro from the net
    Now drag the standard carrier.plist from ;-system/library/carrierbundles/unknowcarrierbundle when connecting to your iphone via ssh
    Open this plist in PlistEditorPro
    Select Boolean next to the AllowEDGEEditing tab,
    Change this to NUMBER then it should say 1 to the right of this. if it doesnt, change it.
    Now save.
    Open your SSH or FTP connection again (f closed) and go to the same folder (System/Library/CarrierBundles/UnknownCarrier)
    Drag your new carrier.plist into your iphone and choose to replace,
    Now restart phone with a new sim preferably. (at this point i tested with a brand new restored phone and had no problems with the default carrier, i am yet to test others but my other testing has led me to belieeve this should work for any carrier in any country supported)
    now restart phone and enjoy edge...

    Ok in theory guys if you are on an apple allowed network edge should work by itself and if you are on a carrier which is NOT allowed by apple then the iphone will resort to using the UnknownCarrier bundle instead (this is the carrier you have altered)
    I would appreciate any feedback about results. in particular i am interested in results regarding vodafone and meteor in ireland
    Also if there are any flaws or holes in my guide please report and il get back to work!!!


    This is a mac guide although with the right plist editor or ssh program im sure this will be easy enough to work out.

    Let me know of any problems with this guide or if you see any problems or changes. thanx

    (special thanx to JayMe83)
    NOTE - always back up your unknown carrier.plist just incase
    NOTE 2- if any1 needs a windows guide reply and i will post one
    NOTE 3- i should be testing with a few more simcards tomorow and will know for sure if my theory is concrete please wait for the edit !!!

    I have a 1.1.2 OTB UK phone running 1.1.4. I have a non iPhone O2 contract. Since the upgrade to 1.1.3 I automatically get an EDGE menu when I put a non-approved carrier SIM card in the phone with no editing of plist required. What FW are you running?
