    Is there a way to do this? I want to put my AT&T SIM into an iPhone 2G. 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.

    Please help!

    Jailbreak it and turn off edge in bossprefs.
    Don't think you can do it non jailbroken.

    turning off data roaming will not turn off EDGE it just stops you from getting huge data charges. Jailbreak it using quickpwn and get bossprefs from Cydia. Use it to turn off EDGE. You can also unlock it and use a T-Mobile sim I think.

    If you are against Jailbreaking you can edit the Network "Cellular Data" to something other than the default. Should be as easy as just changing the APN settings to anything other than the correct APN.

    Hopefully that makes sense and although it won't disable Edge it won't be able to connect.
