Enable or Disable GPRS/EDGE in iPhone - The Simple way

I use iPhone 2g with Bharthi Airtel in  India. It Unlocked and jail broken. I had a problem in editing APN settings (GPRS/EDGE settings), in fact its intentionally done by Carrier. They are hidden; you will not be able see Cellular Data Network option under Settings-> General->Network-> Cellular Data Network

To enable or disable GPRS the only option, I think, is to change the settings here.

To do this all you need is
1.       Jail broken iPhone with USB Cable
2.       A PC

You don't have to worry about Wi-Fi or SSH or WinSCP or even Cydia Download.

The procedure –ITS VERY SIMPLE J

1.       Download install iPhone explorer and plist editor for windows they are free and simple use
2.       Connect you iPhone via USB cable (make sure your iTunes recognizes it)
3.       Run iPhone explorer
Click on root. You will see a dialog box as shown bellow.



 Select first option say OK
 Browse to the carrier.plist as shown bellow






                you see the changes done in second snap.


  
       Edit the carrier.plist using plist editor and change as shown bellow


Add the following:



AllowEDGEEditing



After

Save and copy back to iPhone using iPhone Explorer.

That all, we are done. No need to restart your iPhone.
