    Got myself an iphone at last !

    However, i unlocked it successfully after buying from apple shop uk, downgrade to 1.1.1 then up to 1.1.2 .

    Now i slipped in a brand new o2 payg sim card to see if it works, when i go to networks i cant see the word edge to set it up, all i see is VPN or WI FI. Is this normal ????

    ive ordered my o2 contract and should be coming soon it comes with data bundle with it , when i pop in my contract sim will edge appear in networks then???

    Very confusing post i apologise, basically why isnt my edge settings availble in network?

    i dont think the UK iphones have Edge settings available in network. not sure if this is a UK or a 1.1.2 thing.

    edit: i think the way to get the settings is to go to sim applications>get settings
    (at least this is the only way that i cans see to get edge settings for the uk from o2)

    cant find it exactly now because im out of battery and cba to get the cables. but its in settings i think under sim or general or something, and then you can select applications, or just choose 'get settings', sorry for the vagueness, ill try to post a bit later with the exact path

    settings>phone>sim applications>get settings

    if this fails i suggest phoning o2

    make sure data roaming is on too - mine came with the default as off

    EDGE is not available on O2 PAYG. It should work when you use the contract sim that you are expecting.

    there is no place in settings to enter the GPRS/EDGE settings. you have to change the files in the phone: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=383315.

    as cd3660 says, even though o2 say its available, you won't actually get EDGE speeds on pay and go ... only GPRS speeds.

    interesting however the reality of my question is ,

    1. is this due to the sim card ive put in , if so if i put in contract the settings will come up.
    2. is this due to my phone therefore need to alter iphone files.

    Im guessing its just coz i put a payg sim card in that isn't topped up.

    Its due to the 1.1.2 firmware which hides EDGE settings from the phone. Regardless of sim or tariff you will not see EDGE settings in 1.1.2
