    Hey guys,
    i'm in Montana and we just got 3G Service about 2 days ago, but my iPhone 4 mostly still uses the Cellular One partner Roaming network (EDGE), is there any way to choose the 3G Service or deactivate 2G?!

    No, you cannot turn off Edge on an i4.
    Why dont you just disable data roaming?
    That will do the trick and only let you use AT&T's network.

    Data Roaming is already deactivated...the iPhone seems to use the National Partner Network like the original AT&T network..

    I don't know how i could fix that..

    and yeah btw...my iPhone 4 is JB'ken so i have access to Cydia.

    If you have SBSettings installed, use the Data toggle. The Data toggle is installed automatically with SBSettings. SBSettings is free.

    You're sure there is 3G available in your area?
    If there is 3G the iphone will connect to AT&T's 3G service rather than staying at a partners 2G network. Unless the 3G signal is very low then it will switch to Edge.
    Unfortunately with the i4 2G and GPRS cannot be turned off even on a JB i4.
    I'd call up AT&T to verify there is 3G now and what you need to do to get on it. Maybe they got more info and details.

    The data toggle will just disable/enable Cellular data.
    It has nothing to do with deactivating Edge.

    We just got 3G about 2 days ago and AT&T is still working on the service, the signal is still not really good but its's faster than EDGE and i think they didn't deactivate partner Roaming yet.

    I see, that makes sense then.
    They probably gotta still work on finalizing it, give them a ring and maybe they got more info with dates and areas it will cover.

    I'm sorry, as far as I understand it, you cannot force 3G and turn off 2G.
