Why are you blocking EDGE, I guess is the first question. There is another app that can block EDGE, not sure what your app is.

You can do this yourself without installing anything.

Just restore the phone, then go to Settings - General - Network - Cellular Data, and change the Cellular Data APN login to something fictitious. Restart the phone, check that your changes have been saved.

That's all the app does anyway.

He said RESTART, not restore. :) Just press the sleep/wake button and the home button until the silver apple appears, not sliding to turn off. That'll restart it, I believe.

You're right I did say restore, I said that to get rid of the lagginess. However, if taking unlockit off makes it OK, then no need. Just follow the other bit.

yea i want to use the phone, im really getting fed up with edge being turned on im gonna try to disable it from my operator :(
If you turn EDGE off, how will you get calls? Or can you disable the data portion of EDGE only?
