    Hello all,

    Is there a way to disable just the cellular connection on the iPhone, while leaving the Wifi on?
    When I'm at work, I get horrible reception, and it's very annoying to get the "Lost Network Connection" message every 5 minutes. But, I'd still like to be able to use my iPhone on the office wifi.

    I can't seem to be able to find a way to just disable the cellular... airplane mode turns it all off.

    Any ideas? My phone is jailbroken, so if it requires a "non-official" workaround, I'm up for that as well.

    Turn airplane mode on and then turn wifi on. Simple.

    Yes, but that was what the OP wanted.

    They walk on water. How dare you say that about demi-gods and goddesses. :)

    I've been doing this on my unactivated iPhone 2G for a few months. Useful as I don't get requests for activation every time I turn it on.
