I have an iPhone 3G and it is jail broken it. I'm using it for a while. I go to net through GPRS/EDGE connection when ever I needed. Since data charge has dropped.. I want to try the 3G network. I've turned on the 3G network and I can not connect to the net. I've checked the APN settings .. everything fine. Is there any 3G lock on my account ? Any thoughts or suggestion?

I use SBSettings to turn 3G and EDGE on and off.

try not using sbsettings to do it and see if it works? i.e  set 3G on "manually" and see what happens. what APN are you using?

I dont think there is a 3G Lock - Plus Vodafone want to make money, they would block both 3G/GPRS if there was a problem.


I had that problem - I thought that I could use 3g while "edge" was disabled.


So basically, enable both 3G and EDGE, respring the phone, check the APN (as mine sometimes changes) and try connect

Otherwise, if you think its a problem with the SBSettings toggles, try install the old app (BossPrefs) - And enable them both through there


Otherwise - (Annoying solution) - Restore your phone with 2.2.1 (assuming its bought from here and unlocked) - and try the 3G through the standard firmware - Then jailbreak the phone again
