    If you thought, as I did that you could get internet for free whenever you are in a wireless zone, you would be wrong. I just got my first bill since I have started using my iphone and I was shocked to see almost $100 in data transfer charges.

    So, if you're going to use it, you may want to buy the multimedia plan.

    If you could be more specific, that would be great.

    To Frosty, maybe I am retarded... I searched through every menu on my phone and couldn't find Edge. *shrugs*

    Dont feel bad. A few of the posters here are 13 y/o who should be in bed by now. Only rude children talk that way to others. Most of the people here are young but very kind and helpful. Like I said, a few need to be spanked by their mommy.

    well, come on. If you use data, you will be charged for data usage. It is not always on WiFi, though it might appear that it is. If the WiFi is sketchy, then it will try to fall back on EDGE
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!

    Seriously, look at the title of this website. Modding isn't for the retarded. If you can't even figure out what ******* services your phone has or what services you signed up for with your cell phone contract, you shouldn't be allowed to own one.

    Just remember, always read your contract, even the fine print & ask questions.

    Buddy, some people are new and don't know whats going on, and there is a first time for everything, the guy didn't know what to do give him a break.

    By the way toggle it off by getting Services from Installer.app should be around there somewhere and just toggle EDGE off.
