    I haven't read this anywhere yet so I figure I would let you guys know.

    I have a legally activated iPhone. I activated with the ATT go plan and then canceled it. I never did a software unlock, I just used the Turbo Sim method. I upgraded my iPhone to the latest 1.1.1 firmware and all works great except the below 2 things which did work with the old firmware.

    1. When someone leaves you a voicemail message you used to get a message displayed saying "new voicemail", your also got the + sign on the red circle on the phone icon. When you clicked on the phone icon you would then see the voicemail button on the far right would be red, also letting you know you have a message waiting. None of those notifications happen anymore. I can still click on the voicemail button and it auto dials my voicemail box. This sucks big time. This tells me they are ignoring the cell towers standard command that they send to your gsm phone letting the phone know you have a new voicemail message/voicemail notification. They can do this because if you were on the real ATT cell network they don't require this standard command to tell your iPhone that it has a voicemail message waiting, they send the voicemail message as data….aka visual voicemail.

    2. The Edge settings no longer get saved after you do an iPhone power down and then power up. They just don't get saved, you have to enter them again. This tells me they ignore any Edge settings that don't match ATT Edge settings. This also sucks.

    If someone gives me the proper ATT edge settings I can do a test. I will enter them and then do an iPhone reboot and I bet they will still show/be saved.


    I'm in Canada on the Rogers cell network.

    I also emailed this to Gizmodo

    You didn't understand my post.

    I'm not on the ATT network so we can't get visual voicemail, but when we did get a voicemail message we would get notified by a pop up "New voicemail" and the + sign in the red circle, also the voicemail button would be in red. None of this happens anymore with the new 1.1.1 firmware.

    I tryed searching for the ATT Edge settings but couldn't find them anywhere, even googled with no luck.

    I got the EDGE setting thing fixed. You'll need to jailbreak your phone (using the new 1.1.1 jailbreak) and modify the following:

    /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.carrier.plist

    Modify the following fields to update your APN:

    <dict>
    <key>apn</key>
    <string>APN</string>
    <key>password</key>
    <string>PASSWORD</string>
    <key>username</key>
    <string>USERNAME</string>
    </dict>

    If it doesn't work, try again and modify all three of these files:
    /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.carrier.plist
    /var/root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist
    /private/var/root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist
