    Default APN editing after redsn0w

    Hi, All i have a 3g 8G legit vodafone egypt i was running 2.2 then i restored to 3.0 as instructed and used redsn0w everything was running smooth except for battery drainage i was told to restore again but as new phone to get rid of old backup data from 2.2 that's causing the problem, i did so and i activated through itunes legally before jailbreaking (i'm not even using ultrasn0w, and did not install it) since then i installed APN editing but strangely i can't find it in my setting/general/network although it was there before i restored as new phone.
    any one has an explanation for this

    there is a package in cydia that will show the cellular data network.

    launch cydia and look for "APN Editing."

    what happens is that if you're on a legit plan and doing everything Apple wants you to do (except the redsn0w part), the cellular data network is hidden because your phone is locked. Apple has carrier and APN settings for every official carrier already in the OS, and will use them automatically when you insert an official SIM.

    Once you unlock it through ultrasn0w or legitimately, the Cellular Data Network will be shown since you could be using a carrier Apple doesn't support and doesn't have their APN settings (the biggest example is T-Mobile USA).

    "APN Editing" app in Cydia does not work for 3.0. Apple changed the directory path where the file to show APN needs to be overwritten.

    I have a legitimately unlocked Vodafone AU iphone using a Vodafone SIM. The APN is still hidden cause the vfoneAU plist file disables this menu when a Vodafone AU SIM is inserted. This will not change with any unlock method, legit or not.

    "unlockit.co.nz" works... but if you're out and about, you will not be able to enable / disable cellular data again until you're in a wifi area.

    I need to edit my APN to enable / disable cellular data. I don't want my iPhone to use data when I don't want it to since i'm charged $1 per 5 minute block. Which means even if I get any notification (new emails, new updates in app store... etc) I get charged $1.

    OK, I've found a more permanent solution that works. Basically this is what the "APNEditing" app in Cydia supposed to do

    A post from pattulus of modmyi forums:

    To edit your APN Settings on FW3.0 and avoid data costs you’ll have to…

    1. Access your Phone via FTP/SSH

    2. Open up the directory /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/

    3. Open you Providers SIM-Card, in my case "TMobile_Germany.bundle"

    4. Open the carrier.plist in your favorite editor - it should look something like this:

    Code:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>AllowEDGEEditing</key>
    <true/>
    <key>BookmarkURLs</key>
    <array>
    <dict>
    <key>BookmarkName</key>
    <string>T-Mobile web'n'walk</string>
    <key>BookmarkURL</key>
    <string>http://www.t-mobile.de/iphone-favoriten</string>
    </dict>
    </array>
    <key>CarrierName</key>
    <string>T-Mobile</string>
    <key>IntlDataRoamingSwitch</key>
    <true/>

    5. Add the bold text entry in the example code to your .plist:

    Code:

    <key>AllowEDGEEditing</key>
    <true/>

    6. Save and upload your carrier.plist to your iPhone
    . It should be instantly accessible (if not simply reboot).


    7. Now everything is showing up in settings-->general-->networks: Cellular Data Network
    I used a little application called "pledit" for windows to edit the plist file and used "winscp" to SSH. Don't forget you'll need to install "OpenSSH" from Cydia first.

    Also make a copy of the original plist file just in case anything goes wrong.

    I don't have to put up with unecessary data charges anymore!
