    Default Solution for EDGE settings not saving on v1.1.1

    Another issue I noticed with the v1.1.1 update is that the carrier EDGE settings are no longer permanently saved when entered through the Settings->General->Network->EDGE screen.

    Basically, whenever the iPhone is restarted or rebooted, the EDGE settings disappear.

    The solution to this for me was to SSH/SCP into the iPhone and edit the /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.carrier.plist file. This file should already be in XML format, and shouldn't need to be converted.... Just look for the section that specifies the APN settings and fill in the blanks appropriately, for example:

    Code:
            <array>
                    <dict>
                            <key>apn</key>
                            <string>internet.com</string>
                            <key>password</key>
                            <string>wap</string>
                            <key>username</key>
                            <string>wapuser1</string>
                    </dict>
                    <dict>
                            <key>apn</key>
                            <string>internet.com</string>
                            <key>password</key>
                            <string>wap</string>
                            <key>username</key>
                            <string>wapuser1</string>
                    </dict>
            </array>
    (The above settings are for Rogers Wireless -- obviously if you're on another carrier you will need to enter the APN settings appropriate for your carrier).

    I happend to me once - I think while I was playing around trying to fix YouTube - but then I entered the information and rebooted right after and it has stayed since.

    EDIT: I take that back - it also forgot my settings this morning - it seems the file is a symbolic link and hence why you just can't upload a new file.

    Cool, thanks for posting this 'cause I'm on Rogers too.

    So, you're using your previously unlocked phone with the 1.1.1 update now? Everything cool? Was it unlocked previously with the paid IPSF method or the free unlock? Does everything else Rogers behave as it should? (voicemail notification, etc)

    Yes, as of Wednesday night I'm now fully unlocked and activated on v1.1.1 with my Rogers SIM card.

    I started out with an iUnlocked iPhone, but then followed the "revirginizing" procedure detailed elsewhere to restore my original baseband firmware and then used IPSF to re-do the unlock so I could safely upgrade to v1.1.1, and stay unlocked.

    My experience is detailed over in this post: http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/show...1516#post81516

    The only thing that's not behaving properly on v1.1.1 is the voicemail notification, which is odd. It exhibits the same behaviour as I had on v1.0.2 in terms of the notification coming on after a restart, and going away when I clear the voicemail box, but it won't give me notification of new messages after that point. So in other words, the message to clear the notification is processed properly, but not the message to set it. This is a minor irritation, although it is somewhat annoying... I've posted more detailed on that over in http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=10964

    Funny. Read this, went to my EDGE settings and they were indeed blank, even though I filled in my Norwegian carrier settings earlier. EDGE still works though

    I've found exactly the same problem and had to edit the file directly too. My settings would never stick

    Some carriers do not require an APN while you are on your home network. They just "catch" and route any traffic. This is because many users have difficulties understanding and entering correct data. Thus, not entering an APN will not protect you from generating data packets on some networks.

    Same thing happened to me and was very frustrating until I fixed it!

    After upgrading to 1.1.1 and activating with iASign, I used the "3 files" method to activate YouTube, which requires you to copy new device_public_key.pem and device_private_key.pem files on the phone (in var/root/Library/Lockdown), and extract the device certificate data from a data_ark.plist file and then paste it into your own data_ark.plist file. In trying to get YouTube to work, I also pasted the device certificate data into the files in the activation_records and pair_records subdirectories. This got YouTube to work, but later I noticed that every time I rebooted the phone, EDGE settings would revert to null.

    What fixed it for me was restoring the two files in the pair_records subdirectory to what was generated by iASign during phone activation, before I pasted in the new device certificate during YouTube activation. This fixed the EDGE problem and YouTube still works.

    Which file is a symlink? com.apple.carrier.plist is not in my case, at least... Not only is it not a symlink, but I can't find any other file on my system that it would be a symlink to....

    In my case, I didn't actually revert anything in the "pair_records" directory during activation -- I left that folder alone entirely, and everything continued to just work.

    In my case, I had a legitimate AT&T activation to base my YouTube activation off of, so I merely copied the DeviceCertificate key from the AT&T PLIST file (in "activation_records") into my iASign-created Rogers PLIST file, and that got the AT&T stuff working.

    However, the EDGE settings were still refusing to "stick", so I just edited the com.apple.carrier.plist file, as described in the original post, and that's completely solved it for me.
