    Could someone suggest a tutorial/sample on how an Iphone application can send data to a remote server using Carrier Data Network only? In other words is there a way an application can programmatically force to enable Carrier Data Network communication, use it to send its request to the remote server and switch it back to user specific communication settings.

    I am taking this approach because my application needs to send user's personal info to my server and sending it over public WiFi does not sound right. Please let me know if there is better approach to it....

    Thanks

    Why not send it to your site through SSL? like https://www.example.com.
    Over public wifi thats more than secure enough.

    Indeed, you should be using encryption rather than relying on a certain type of connection. Personally I'd be very annoyed with an app that forces use of the paid data network instead of my free home one (not to mention that it won't work on a Touch).

    Thanks for the response guys; definitely the application will use SSL for sending user's sensitive information to the server.
