    Default [iPhone 3G-8GB][FW 4.2.1 BB 6.15][Internet from SIM][APN Disabled]

    Hello everyone,

    Before I ask for help here is my phone status:

    iPhone 3G-8G
    FW: 4.2.1 (BB: 6.15)
    JB: Redsn0w 0.9.6b6
    Unlocked: Ultrasn0w (from Cydia)
    SIM + phone: Legit from Vodafone

    Ok here is my question, since I had this phone with the iPhone Plan from Vodafone obviously internet was working fine TILL I changed my Plan to a non-iPhone package since then I had no Data plan available on my account.

    When I try to use my SIM in different phone type (eg. Nokia) internet works fine but in my iPhone (brings the "You are not subscribed to a cellular data service" error), and tried many different SIMs on my phone with no luck, although my friends can use their iPhones internet normally...

    any ideas if this can be fixed?

    I had something similar in the uk. Have you set up the APN for a non iPhone Internet connection, copy the details from your Nokia. This could work. I am of course assuming that you have APN settings in place.
    To set go to settings-general-network-cellullar data network and load settings there. You can find settings on the appropriate vodafone site.
    Good luck

    I just wanna say for the record thats a great idea I don't know why the hell I didn't think of that before?! may be because I don't have the option do edit in my APN but i used this site: unlockit.co.nz from safari and now I have EDGE working, although 3G is not but I think I'm half way there.

    I guess having internet connection on EDGE better than nothing at all...

    but I have opened /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iphone/<carrier name>/carrier.plist

    found too many info there and I didn't know how or where to edit found a couple if not more APN strings each one for different things (mms, iphone.vodafone etc)

    if anyone have good idea how to edit this file that would be nice

    Also I have tried to install from cydia "APN Editing" but before installation finishes I got a "255" error... thats all for now..

    Without wishing to be patronising, have you turned 3G on in settings etc? If yes are you sure that there is a 3G signal available? If you can get edge then your settings are good for 3G IMHO.

    I only tested 3G from home, and it turns into EDGE as soon as I use internet, but I will try it from different areas now and will feedback..

    This post is from my iPhone and to confirm that 3G is working fine. Also I know now that I could have edited my carrier.plist and changed the apn string from "iPhone.Vodafone.com eg" to "Internet.Vodafone.net"

    Problem solved
