    Hi everyone,

    I have an iPhone 3gs on 3.1.3 that is jailbroken and unlocked
    I use t-mobile
    For some reason, it keeps using cellular data even when connected to wifi
    especially the sent data. it slowly increases, kilobyte by kilobyte

    I tried data disabler from cydia, fake apn from cydia, and I also tried the fakeapn from unlockit.co.nz

    none of them will stop the data counter from increasing
    i also use a prepay plan and it ate up over 900min out of the 1000min that i had:mad:

    is there anyway for me to stop my iphone from using this data?

    Wait, your iPhone consumes data, and as a result your minutes are gone? How.....? Data and minutes are two separate things.

    sorry about the unclear message
    i use a prepay plan, which does NOT include a data plan
    which means using data = using up minutes

    Have you tried with the T-Zones hack? $5/month extra isn't bank breaker.

    Do you get a pop up saying you aren't connected to the internet with a fake APN and wifi off?
    Is the fake APN the only APN loaded on your phone?
    Have you tried deleting all APN's?
