    Is there a way to do this? I want to put my AT&T SIM into an iPhone 3G (there it is again lol). But I currently don't have a data plan, and have no use for it, since I have easy access to WI-FI networks. Can you turn off the internet? I am currently running on 2.2.1 NON JAILBROKEN, in case that makes a difference.

    to turn off 3G you go to, settings>general>network> then there should be an option to enable and disable 3G

    that only disables your phone from using a 3G network. Instead it will use EDGE. to disable your internet, heres a mobileconfig file. here are the steps to use it:

    -Send this file to your email address.
    -In the Mail app, open the email and attachment. It will tell you to enable this config, and it will disable your phone from using Internet. However, Wi-Fi will still work, which is good.

    The nice thing about it is that you can do it on a non-jailbroken phone and you can remove it any time. It will be located in Settings > General > Network > APN Settings.

    Hope that helps.

    you can, but APN setting dont appear on a non-jailbroken phone, unless you open the mobileconfig file listed in my previous post. with a jailbroken phone, just install APN Settings from Cydia.

    the easiest way to disable Internet with a jailbroken phone, just install BossPrefs and toggle EDGE off.
