    I just bought an iPhone 3G v 2.1 and unlocked it through a turbo sim. I am facing a problem that after every 3-4 hours the EDGE/GPRS sign at the right of the carrier signal disappears & I am unable to use EDGE/GPRS on my phone then.

    I have to reboot the device to get the EDGE/GPRS sign back and then an able to browse. I dont neither have 3G in my country nor wifi, so EDGE/GPRS is the only way to browse. Does any one has a solution for this. Is there any application or trick that could bring the EDGE/GPRS sign back again & get it working or any other solution for this ?

    Please help!! Thanks.

    Why didn't you just get the OG iPhone. That way you could've software unlocked it, and you would've had more reliable service seeing as how there is no use for 3G in your area.

    Sorry for my curiosity but, what country are you from? I though that since my country (Nicaragua) has 3G, every other country has it! :eek:
