    hello guys, i have an iphone 3g 8gb's and i used unlockit.co.nz to block Edge internet so it only uses wifi, but the thing is my iphone gets really laggy (from menus to applications) when i install unlockit... so guys let me know how to fix this i really hate the lagging and edge network

    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.

    I guess you could achieve the same thing by asking AT&T to block cellular data on your phone number, I believe they can do that.

    You want to just use Wifi?

    Turn on Airplane mode then turn Wifi back on.

    That sounds way easier than everything else you've been trying!

    I had the impression he still wants it to be a phone, could be wrong :)

    If you turn EDGE off, how will you get calls? Or can you disable the data portion of EDGE only?
