    hi, i have a OOB 1.1.2 iphone from the UK which i have jailbroken and activated.

    i have an o2 pay monthly sim (not the iphone tariff) in the phone, but i cant seem to get edge to work

    i have the box and sometimes the E symbol as well, but each time i try to use it, safari or whatever cannot find server

    it was working a while ago, then i used services.app to disable it. i tried re-enabling it and its never worked since then

    any ideas? thanks

    yep, its really easy

    ssh onto the iphone to / > System > Library > Frameworks > CoreTelephony.framework > Support

    open O2_UK.plist

    set APN to "mobile.o2.co.uk", username to "faster" and password to "web"

    turn off phone and remove sim
    turn on again, then off
    put sim back in, then turn on
    then reset phone settings

    all works fine then!

    jailbreak iphone
    install open SSH
    open an SSH client (transmit on mac, dunno about windows)
    navigate to / > System > Library > Frameworks > CoreTelephony.framework > Support
    open the o2_UK.plist

    find the area with the APN title
    set APN to "mobile.o2.co.uk", username to "faster" and password to "web"
    urn off phone and remove sim
    turn on again, then off
    put sim back in, then turn on
    then reset phone settings

    I got PuTTy for windows, which is just like open SSH ( i think )

    But once that is open , i dont know what to do next Lol

    i dont get this bit

    "navigate to / > System > Library > Frameworks > CoreTelephony.framework > Support
    open the o2_UK.plist"


    God im such a dumb ass Lol.

    openSSH is an iphone app. you need both that, and PuTTy, to do this
    open installer.app (you need a jailbroken iphone) and open all packages, scroll to OpenSSH and install

    i can only show you stuff for transmit on a mac, but it should be similar

    server is the iphones ip address (find in settings > wifi > network name)
    user name is: root
    password (default) is: alpine
    make sure the protocol is SFTP
    if the software youre using doesnt work, use FileZilla

    then it should be like a hierarchal system (like windows explorer)

    just follow through the folders...

    Get a copy of WinSCP and you can then browse the iPhone a la Explorer.
