    I want to prevent my Iphone 4G automatically connecting to the Internet via my provider .My data plan costs according to how much I use this service. However if I use the data off switch in my iPhone 4, of course, I lose the SMS function. I still want to be able to send and receive sms
    My phone is jailbroken.
    Previously on my iPhone 3 , I used fakeapn but I understand that this
    app should not be used with iOS 4.xx

    You can still send and receive SMS text messages. Just not mms.

    Are you sure about that ?
    When I switch on Data Transfer, I see that I get an IP address from the network.
    Admittedly, I cannot seem to get to the Internet but certainly the battery life drains more in this mode and the IP address suddenly acquired when I enable it, makes me suspicious.

    Ip address has nothing to do with SMS.
    Try it. Text messages will go thru, just not mms picture messages.

    Sorry but I think my brain is playing up. I see that when I disable data transfer, the IP address goes away and of course, I can send and receive sms.
    That's what I wanted to achieve,
    Thx,
