    Default o2 customers using their 1.1.2 jailbreak phones, please read v.important.....

    Ok, so I wake up this morning and my 1.1.2 o.t.b jailbreak phone is not allowing me to make out going calls, yet is showing an o2 signal (I'm an existing o2 customer, but don't want to be tied into o2's expensive / long 18 month contract for iPhone). Rang o2 here in the UK only to find out that they put a bar on my outgoing calls as I'd ran up a bill of 130 internet usage. I thought because my o.t.b 1.1.2 phone had been activated via jailbreak and was picking up the Edge signal, that my usage of the Edge network was then free (assumed this as I'd been reading it on the net somewhere). It's not, and now I have to foot the bill. An unlimited usage of their edge network via pda / iphone devices is 30 a month on top of my current tariff I'm told.
    Not sure what to do now whether to reset my phone and activate it legitimately via o2, as either way it works out the same roughly, except that now I'm using a device which is not really covered by o2 if anything goes wrong (even though I am enjoying 3rd party apps). Pros and cons I guess.

    Can someone answer the following question please. If and when an unlocking method is found for 1.1.2 phones here in the UK, obviuosly then I can use another carriers sim card in the device. But would I then be able to use for arguments sake T mobiles walk and web on the device if I used a T Mobile sim, thus enabling me to access internet on the go, without Apple / o2 blocking the i Phone? What I'm asking is will Apple / o2 be able to detect that their device is being used to access the net via another carriers tariff / agreement?

    How has it worked so far for people in other countries who've unlocked their phones on 1.1.1? Are they able to enjoy another networks net browsing deals?

    Sorry if it's been covered before.

    I am on a o2 simplicity sim-only tariff (15 per month) + the 7.5 unlimited web bolt-on. I thought this included the navigation from the iPhone, but I can't be 100% sure as my first bill still has to arrive...

    I will let you know.

    Why would your use of the EDGE network be free? It has nothing to do with the iPhone. It doesn't matter which phone u use you still have to pay for the use of EDGE. And I can't really see why somebody would say that it would be free with an activated iPhone, just don't make sense

    Data is FREE on an iPhone tarrif mate. EDGE is free, GPRS is free, if you are not on an activated legit tarrif for iPhone then you do not get the Data Unlimited! This was pretty clear at the time the iPhone was launched in the UK!

    Yeah that's exactly what i meant, if u have a contract that you usually need to pay for EDGE it will be the same whenever u put it into an iPhone.
    And he didn't have an iphone tariff so why would the edge be free

    I had the web bolt on added to my contract, the o2 rep told me I was good to go as of my next billing date......
    I started using the data/edge on my net billing date & guess what???

    My next bill was 195 norm. 30, the rep done all the ground work but didn't follow through & activate my bolt on.....

    I gave them a call & got a very big sorry........ they will re-calculate my bill & issue it out allong with next months....

    I don't know why you would have thought Edge was free just because you had an Iphone!!! were you sniffing glue at the time!!!
    It sucks to be paying that bill at this time of year......

    lol, how stupid is it possible to be? This thread should be deleted, and you should be banned for being dumb.

    it took o2 two times to get my web bolt on working, both times they refunded the data charges once I pointed out the dates/times that I'd made the requests.

    maybe we should also point out that even though you pay for unlimited data, you will still be billed if you use these abroad.
