Thanks to nzbullet's carrier bundle, I have got my iPhone 3G connected to XT, but have run into a bit of a snag.

I used to control data usage with Vodafone using "SBSettings" to turn off EDGE and 3G settings so that I could block data and then turn it on if I chose to.

However with "3G" blocked", it seems to block cellular reception for voice calls too.

Now that I think about it, given that XT is a "3G' only network, it might make perfect sense that this should be like this but can anyone confirm that I won't be able to block and allow data as I did previously on Vodafone using SBSettings while on the XT network?

Or is there some other way to block/allow data manually?

Change your APN to something other than Xt's defaults..

So Telecom don't do that stupid Vodafone thing where an incorrect APN still lets you access data then?  Undecided

no as far as I know they don't. Vodafone NZ are only of the only Carriers who does this as far as I can tell .
