    Default NEED TO STOP INTERNET CONNECTION HELP PLEASE

    Hi

    My boy has bought himself an iphone 3g on PAYG orange

    Problem is it kkeps connecting to the internet and using his credit.

    I've told him he must be accidentally pressing something thats requiring internet connection i.e facebook, itunes etc etc.

    Is there a way of turning the orange internet connection off in the settings but still leaving the wifi connection to connect via our pc.

    Regards

    hi,i also have a iphone on orange but mines on pay monthly..the best thing to do would be to ring orange and ask them for a iphone add-on or bundle not sure what its called on PAYG but my friend did it and it costs around 5 per month and gives you unlimited internet usage as the iphone is a smartphone and is designed to be always connected...if this is not a option then the only other thing i could say is make sure he logs off facebook wen not using as it runs in the background like many apps such as live messenger...etc and also goto settings and turn notifactions off other than this i aint sure how you would remove the orange settings.......hope this helps

    Found out that those steps you suggested only works on firmware 2 but cellular network data isnt an option on firmware 3 but this following link works on firmware 3.x.x .....

    Not happy as my boys iphone used up 20 credit in a week and he didnt know about it. Hopefully this has sorted it now

    Hi.. Download Cydia BossPrefs and open then only CLOSED "DATA" then section and finish your internet.. if you need open then DATA section is open.. That's it.

    Byes..
