How to Disable Edge/3G Data on Your iPhone

These are instructions on how to block and disable Edge and 3G data usage on your iPhone using the SBSettings Data toggle.

Anderson Vulczak and BigBoss constructed the toggle which sets a bogus IP address, (1.1.1.0) to your data adapter’s IP address. This seems to kill EDGE / 3G without any battery drain issues reported in using other methods such as entering a bad APN.

You may want to do this to ensure your iPhone does not rack up costly data usage chargers from your carrier.

Step One
Press to launch Cydia from your iPhone Springboard.

hi, whether this setting saves the battery? I never got GPRS connection. But "E" is popped up on my iphone 3gs (3.0.1). Please tell me about this setting.

I tried to install this sbsetting addon, but when I select it for download it says I need to remove sbsettings and sbsettingstoggles before I can install this. So I uninstall those two items, reboot the iphone, try to install the data toggle sbsetting addon, and I am told it needs sbsettings >=2.99 (i had the lastest version 3.11 installed) I am using a factory unlocked iphone, jailbroke with firmware 3.1.3. any ideas why I cant install this?
