    i'm tired of my iphone constantly switching between 2g and 3g, especially since my area is caked in 3g. i want to turn it off. i read cydia can turn off EDGE, but i want 2g completely off, including edge. is there a program that can do this?

    isn't edge data separate from voice? i don't even want my phone looking for 2g for voice service. i notice sometimes i have full bars but no edge or 3g. and i notice other times i have a strange icon that's a blue square with a white circle in it (i assume this is gprs without edge). i basically want my phone to forget about looking at anything except 3g for voice and data. is that what this program will do?

    EDGE is the data component, but in all technically, you can't just turn off one but not the other within the iPhone.

    wow that's odd. even the "dumb" free 3g phones i've had have had an option for choosing 3g or 2g gsm (or both)

    whats the point, u can turn off 3G so it uses always edge but if u want 3G u switch it on but if u get in a area without 3G it'll switch automaticly to edge

    EDGE is how you recieve the calls... just turn off 3g until you want to use it as it kills your battery anyhow.
