Vodafone India – GPRS for iPhone without Data Plan

Update: If you have the latest version of  iOS  (3.1.3, 4.0, 4.1 or later), please check update below.

Vodafone(India) will not allow to use the regular GPRS plan (Vodafone Live) on iPhone. We need to take special iPhone data plan which costs min of Rs 199. This is sort of insane, So I just took a crack at it and found a way to access the internet using the regular plan. I have an unlocked, jailbroken iPhone which is running 3.0 firmware. Please follow the below instructions.

Using OpenSSH, edit preferences.plist located in /private/var/preferences/SystemConfiguration.
Important: Make sure you take a backup of the original preferences.plist.

Around line number 89 (this is appox line number, contents of the file may change based on your phone settings) replace the <dict> with below <dict>

	<dict>
	<key>Interface</key>
	<dict>

To activate Vodafone Live (GPRS) see Vodafone Website

Update: The below configuration is working on 3.1.2 as well, but the line numbers are little different.

Update (16 Mar 2010):

Many guys have commented that the changes that were made in preferences.plist are lost after restarting the iPhone (for versions 3.1.2 and 3.1.3). So today i decided to take a look at it. And what you guys said is absolutely right, i upgraded my iPhone OS to 3.1.3 and i see that the settings are lost after restarting the phone. And you guys don't worry, i had found a way to fix this and this is much easier than my previous solution. Below are the step by step instructions.

  1. Download and Install iPhone Configuration Utility from http://support.apple.com/kb/DL926
  2. Open the application, Select Configuration Profiles on the left hand side menu and click New in the toolbar; Enter the name, identifier, organization and description; see the image below for more details
  3. Now go to Advanced option and set the apnname = portalnmms, proxy server  =10.10.1.100 and port = 9401
  4. Connect your iPhone to computer via USB cable and you should see your iPhone in the devices menu on Left hand side. Select your device
  5. Select Configuration Profiles tab and you should see the Vodafone Profile; Click on Install
  6. You will see a pop on your iPhone asking for permission to install the configuration, Click Install button in your iPhone
  7. Turn on Data Roaming. Data Roaming can be turned on from Settings > General > Network on you iPhone.
  8. And you are done with the configuration. You should be able to use internet on your iPhone now. If its not working just reboot your phone.

Hope this helps !! Please feel free to give your Feedback, Suggestions

Update(08 July 2010): Few guys confirmed that this is working on iOS 4 as well, i personally couldn't test this at this point of time as i'm out of country. I will update this post as soon as i'm back in India. Thanks Sanjeev, Taran for testing it out on iOS 4. You might need to download the upgraded version of the configuration utility. You can download it from http://support.apple.com/kb/DL926.

Update(14 Nov 2010): This configuration works good on iPhone 4 as well. Tested and Certified by me :D

Update(10 Dec 2010): For those that this configuration is not working, please turn on Data Roaming. Data Roaming can be turned on from Settings > General > Network.

Update(2nd May 2011): 4.1, 4.1.2 are good with the same configuration

Update(31st May 2011): I Confirm that 4.3 is good with the same configuration for iPhone 4.

    i have access to general-network-cellular data and have added the apn “portalnmms”
    i have activated vodafone live by sending an sms act vl to 144 (prepaid) and have even received an activation confirmation sms
    when i enable edge on my iphone, i even get a data ip addr

    • From your comments i understand that you are using a prepaid vodafone connection.
      iPhone comes with pre bundled configurations for each carrier. Vodafone settings that come be default with iPhone will only work with post paid connections and also you gotta activate a dataplan which costs min of Rs. 199.
      In order to edit the settings, you need some technical knowledge. Here are the steps u need to follow
      * Install Cydia and OpenSSH on your iPhone.
      * SSH your iphone from your computer.
      * Edit preferences.plist located in /private/var/preferences/SystemConfiguration.
      * Replace the settings with the settings i mentioned in this post.
      * Done ! there you goo !!

      • Javachap i followed the instructions and i was able to access GPRS but after reboot the original plist file replaces the edited one.As a result ive to manually configure it again.Any idea why this is happening?
        Thnx in advance………..

        • Arun, I have tried that, but my settings are still there.

          One possible way this can happen is, have u tried to change the APN, by going to Settings > General > Network > Celluar Data Network ??

          If you have gone to that screen, then yeah these settings will be overwritten

  31. Could you elaborate it further…………I installed the vodafone APN using sys confi utility software………im still having the same problem… :(

  32. Im not able to edit that file .. n i m using mac

    how to edit the file can u tell me

  33. Hello,

    I am using Iphone 3GS. I tried wih send the SMS (iphone to 52586) to activate internet on my phone. when i called the customer care they said that after sending this SMS it will be activated in 5 hrs. but, i was not. i tried same thing couple of times my calling them. but, i don’t know where i am doing the mistake. kindly suggest me. i tried with Settings –>General –> Network –> (can can see — Enable 3G, Data Roaming, Set Up Internet Tethering, VPN, WI FI. ) these are only the options i have. i don’t see any APN.

  38. Plz tell me how to edit preferences.plist in mobile terminal

  39. Can any one please upload the ‘working’ preference.plist file…so that we can replace it in our phones!

    • @Naren you cannot just copy other preferences.plist cause that file wile change based on various settings.. So its always good to modify it. Do let me know if you facing any problems in editing the file

  40. Thanks for your response..

    Its like…when I edit>save>restart my phone…i dont see APN settings in Network..and when I go to edit the preferences.plist again its like never before edited!!!

  41. I have the same problem as Naren in 3.1.2 . Can you please reply?

  42. hi JavaChap

    i tried

    i find prefrence list with iphone browser
    and edit with plist editor
    and
    replace with iphone browser

    but

    when iphone restart

    prefrense list is as it is

    i
    thinks vodafone make changes

    pls
    response

  43. @Umang, @SunilPandit .. Currently i’m running on 3.0.2.. So i’m unable to reproduce the issue that you guys mentioned.

    Seems like many of the guys are running into this issue on 3.1.2

    I will upgrade to 3.1.2 this weekend… and ll see what can i do to fix this issue.

  44. i have updated the preferences file and it is showing the updated content also. but still iam not able to view the APN settings in Network. Did i do anything wrong in updating the preferences file.

  45. Well, Javachap, I’ll be waiting. This is really important. Please find a way to help us 3.1.2s .

    Thanks

  46. Please update. It’s been 3 days since the weekend.

  47. Oh well, forget it! I got it to work :D ..the reason the settings revert is because while you are busy editing your plist file, your iphone goes to standby and physically WinSCP actually gets disconnected while you don’t really notice. So all you have to do next time is make sure the light of your iphone is always on while you edit the preferences.plist file.

    One more thing, remember to enable EDGE from SBSettings for Edge to work properly!

    Thanks Javachap !

  48. Javachap, nice one, something I’ve been looking for a while now.
    Suppose I switch network carriers now though, will the settings still hold good or is there more tedious editing to be done on switchover?

  49. Also, when I edit the plist file and try and place it back into the folder using iPhoneBrowser, i don’t think it registers the change, since if i view the now edited file that has been uploaded, it is identical to the original.
    What is the workaround to this problem? Please dont suggest WinSCP since i gave up on it after days or un-sync-ability. Thanks

  50. @Umang @SunilPandit
    i was busy last week, so i was unable to take a look at it. Today i got a chance to take a look at the issue and I updated my post above for version > 3.1. Please take a look and let me know if that works for you guys.

  51. Thanks alot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    then the next step
    Download and Install Iphone Configuration Utility from http://support.apple.com/kb/DL926
    this all went ok thanks for the screenshots all done
    ok now when i start browsing like whatever i open maybe map or safari or youtube or my mails i get (could not activate cellular data network you are not subscribed to a cellular data services)..

    and i have even set my autolock to never as some one in previous post mentioned it

  55. hey i have installed the settings through iphone configuration utility …..
    it works very well to play with GPRS…..
    but the main damn thing is that it its NOT FREE…
    it sweeps out big bucks from the balance for just a small use
    any other trick to get it for free……….?
    THANKZZ

  56. HI Javachap

    Still i am getting “because it is not connected to internet”.
    Are there any other settings i need to set to use GPRS?
    Please help.

    Thanks

  57. @sunil
    Sunil, I have enabled tethering on phone.. I can now connect to internet using iPhone.. Hurrayyyy…Even thought its too slow, better than nothing right !!

    @Sanjeev
    Hey you dont need to run the first step any more(editing), you can just install the configuration profile. And you are done.

    @Avy
    Avy, you gotta marry Vodafone CEO’s daughter to get GPRS for free :P, Go checkout if he got a beautiful daughter !! :D

    @Hash
    Did you install the Configuration Profiles ?? is Vodafone Live enabled for your connection ?

  58. Javachap

    Yes, VLive is working fine from Nokia handset, but shifted to iPhone and installed the profile, unable to connect. I am using 3G only with 3.1.2. I don’t know what else i need to discturb. Thanks

  59. @JavaChap
    sorry sir javachap its not working i have iphone 3g 3.1.2 os and i have done the second process iPhone Configuration Utility 100 times but its not happening

  60. Sanjeev :iphone os 3.1.2 jailbreak and unlock done with the help of Blackra1n

    so still i can use the GPRS for iPhone without Data Plan

    one more thing i have to say that when i go to settings>general there i see Profile Vodafone>

  61. @Sanjeev

    Hey since u have modified the preferences.plist, i have a doubt that you might have corrupted the settings. Can you reset the network settings and see if it works ?

    First you make sure that Vodafone Live is active ! By just trying it on another phone.

  62. @JavaChap
    Hello Sir JavaChap
    yes i have tried reseting the network settings by going to settings>general>reset>Reset Network Settings
    still the same sorry to trouble you Sir
    tell me sir is iphone os 3.1.2 jailbreak and unlock done with the help of Blackra1n is tested and working to use the GPRS for iPhone without Data Plan if yes then this time i will try to restore my os and try it again waiting for your answer…….

  63. @Sanjeev
    and yes i have tried vodafone live on another phone using my simcard and yes it works perfect

  64. finally working thanks a million

  65. @Sanjeev

    How did you fix it ?? Can you please mention that here.. It will be helpful for others…

  66. Thanks..this works..
    Does the Rs. 95 card work fine? like we don’t get charged until we have used 4 GB? I mean like it works in Nokia and other phones?

  67. @umang
    yes
    e recharge with 95 rupees and use 4 GB data in one month validity

    i used this plan work fine
    but
    no pc tethering!

  68. Hi Javachap

    After resetting te n/w. I am able to connect to GPRS.
    One more question, if WIFI Is connected how do we know whether its using WIFI or GPRS.

    Thanks

  69. @Hash

    Good that you got it working !!

    WIFI has higher priority than the GPRS, so if you are connected to WIFI..iPhone will always use the WIFI connection to access the internet.

    And you can see an icon on top of the screen beside the carrier name. Either of E or WIFI Siginal. Based on that you can determine which connection it is using !

  70. yes i restored my firmware 3.1.2 os 3g jailbreak with the help of redsnow and tried it and it worked

  71. Ok, it was all working fine until i ran out of balance this morning.. the gprs runs automatically to update my mail etc. so its kinda obvious my balance kept deducting. I had no problem even with this. But as soon as my balance reached 0.1, my E that shows up with the network is not there anymore and so im not being able to run the gprs anymore. i have recharged with the 95 card + 351 for balance. my sbsettings is not activating EDGE anymore either. when i click the button, it reads and instead of turning green, it stays red.

    Can you please explain to me as to what is happening here? I dont want to think that i wasted Rs. 95 for nothing.
    Please help.

  72. Hi

    I did as you had mentioned and for some reason I still cannot open safari. it keeps on saying that safari was unable to connect to the server.

    pls help out

  73. Well, I think it was a glitch with the service provider. It’s working fine now and I’m posting this from my iPhone itself. The Rs. 95 cardworks fine too.

  74. Hey.. Pls let me know from where to edit prefrences.plist

  75. @Annika Anand

    Thanx..

  108. Hi,

    I have a jailbroken iPhone 3G, which I upgraded to OS4 2 days ago.
    While overall the phone is working fine, its a bit slow though, I can’t seem to get my internet working again. I tried everything – resetting the network settings, rebooting several times, visiting the Vodafone folks to see if they can help…but nothing has worked.

    I have reached a level of frustration that I want to downgrade back to 3.1 which was MUCH faster and far more efficient.

    Can you help?
    1) What do I need to do to get the internet running? There is no option for me to manually change any network settings in General/Network Settings
    2) If I downgrade back t 3.1, will my phone go back to the way it was…with internet, speed and everything?

    Pls help!

    Best regards,
    Joanna

  109. Thx a lot chap …

  115. Hey,

    Thanks in advance!

  142. My service provider is Vodafone india

  143. I have iPhone 3g on iOS 4…… this trick worked fine for a couple of days but later even if my cellular is on (thats with an “E” symbol) it says “could not activate cellular data network” .
    I tried rebooting it but no result. I dont want to reset setting bcoz then i will loose this settings.
    So plz @JavaChap help me plz :)

  144. Hey !! I have faced the same problem as Sanket, using 3GS,OS 4.0.1. had posted my query couple of days back, haven’t heard from u and my post has vanished!! Pls respond

  145. I have been a Vodafone Customer (in its various previous avatars) in Mumbai for the last decade. I have had no problems with thier service in Mumbai. I used to use the GPRS plan on my Symbian handset. When I got the iphone the GPRS service refused to work (obviously) and I had to take the iphone data plan.

    Now for what is basically a GPRS/EDGE service, I felt it was ridiculous to pay such a high amount (I am in the office most of the day and use the Desk ph for voice and WiFi on the handset) so even though I was paying 800+ taxes as rental, I was actually not using Rs200 voice and data.

    So I decided to use the MTNL 3G service and use the faster speeds. But it has been misery throughout. Well 3G speeds are good….when you get a good signal that is….Most of time I dont get a signal for voice forget data. Calling thier fantastic Cust care never helps. Now for thier Credit, I must say they have the most economic plans.

    To cut the story short I have decided that enough is enough and just want to throw the Dolphin Sim outta window.

    I have Jailbroken and Hactivated my iPhone 3G to work on iOS 4.0.2 with Baseband 05.13.04.
    Now I would like to use a Vodafone Prepaid card on this phone and Push Notifications are important (i use my Corp and personal emails on it)

    Since I run the latest iteration of the iOS, how do I need to proceed?

    Looking for inputs.

  146. hey Tried other unlocking method but those didn’t work and tried this for the first time today its very much working as of now….. lets hope i dont face any further problem.
    PS. I am using #GS with iOS 4

  147. Thanks! Works like magic.

  148. Thanks this works great, finally got relief after spending whole night trying to fix this.

  149. @Vasudha
    Did u connect the iPhone to the PC ? Do u see the iPhone in the Configuration Utility ?

    @Nakul
    Try resetting the Network Settings.. Also try removing the profile and install it again.

  150. Hi Guys,

    I followed all the steps and i even installed de configuration as posted above. But when i try connecting, it says “It cannot connect b’cos its not connected to internet”

    PS: When i try my sim connecting with other mobiles for internet, its working fine.. Pls help me..

  151. I have version 3.1.2

  152. @JavaChap
    yup, but no pop up on the iphone!!

  153. Hey bro, Thanxxx……

  154. I just tried this on my new IPHONE 4 on 4.0.1 and it worked perfectly. :)
    Thanks for the tip.

    The other question that i have is regarding limitation of this. I can verify that YouTube,App Store,Mail and Cydia is not working on this. :(

    Although facebook,twitter seem to be working :)

    Do let me know what else application can i run on this. Thanks
    Vikas

  155. Thanks ! worked for me on iphone 3g ,3.1.3(jailbreaken)

  159. Is there something like this for airtel also?

    and after updating this i can not configure my gmail account with my iphone, some pop up comes out “can not connect using SSL do you want to try setting up the account without SSl ” if i says yes then one more pop up comes out “The IMAP server “IPMAP.GMAIL.COM” is not responding.check your network connection and thet you entered the correct information in the “INCOMING GMAIL SERVER” field

    I have checked everything twice thrice but the result is same….

  160. besides all this problems, you rock bro………..

  161. hi bro,
    i have done all the steps told by u.. but still am unable to connect to internet via GPRS pls help me.
    i am using iphone 3gs 3.0 firmware

  162. Great work dude… it works on iOs 4 beautifully….

  163. I have VMC (Vodafone Mobile Connect) and it works fine without changing anything on my factory-unlocked iphone 4. On my 3G (USA-specific but unlocked) I used the unlock from http://www.unlockit.co.nz and used my VMC plan.

    Now I’m curious why would you use the MMS apn (portanmms) instead of the regular data apn (www)?

    I ask because you can get an unlimited datapack on VMC (Rs7000 yearly here in Gujarat).

  164. @Nayan
    Hi mate
    I am unboxing the iphone 4 which is factory unlocked (bought from apple website).
    Could you please confirm whether vodafone mobile connect actually works without any glitches.
    How did u activate vmc since vodafone india doesnt allow for any vodafone mobile connect options on iphone..
    let me know.
    consider this urgent
    thanks

  165. @Deepak… VMC works fine. I suggest you take the unlimited plan as iPhone is a data-hog. Just tell Vodafone that you want an unlimited data plan for your “non-apple” phone. If you mention iPhone they’ll start hyper-ventilating and will push you the effing-expensive iphone data plans.

    Of course I can only confirm what works in Gujarat, so if you’re in another state please make your own verifications.

    In either case my post above stands. Use the “www” access point to take advantage of the VMC plans.

  166. BTW the unlimited data plan is Rs. 6k and not Rs. 7k as I stated earlier. That works out to Rs. 500 per month.

  167. Thanks a lot buddy ! i cant describe after struggling for nearly 2 months, finally i got it working. Sometime back i had lost all the hopes of browsing internet on Iphone 2G(OS 3.0) when I switched to Vodafone(due to n/w issues with mtnl).
    Many Many thanks once again and keep posting similar good stuff in future also!
    Good Luck

  168. Thanks. it works for my Iphopne 3.1.3

  169. Hey guys, I followed the same and installed, restarted .
    Now I get an error saying
    There was a problem communicating with the web proxy server (HTTP)

    What to do buddies?

  170. @Vikas
    vikas… mine is iphone4… its not working onmine :(

  171. Dude seriously u rock hats off to u, it is working in iphone 2g us rock man

  172. @Nayan…I just want to confirm before going for vodafone mobile connect plan..I am using factory unlocked iPhone 4 with IOS 4.1..
    1) Do u have to do any modification using the configuration utility or the VMC plans work as is?
    2) Also does all the apps including mail works fine on VMC or still u have to compromise on POP and ICMP??

    Please let me know asap as i wanna go for the plan..

    Thanks,
    Dhrumil

  173. Hi Nayan,

    Can you please explain in details how you got VMC plans to work on your iphone?
    Its an absolute rip-off what Vodafone is doing! Paying Rs 100/- just for connection charges every month (Prepaid) and on top of that , one needs to pay 5p/10kbps…how sad is that?!

    So, do I need to access the website ‘http://www.unlockit.co.nz’ from my iphone and follow the instructions given? Does it amount to Jail – breaking?

    My iphone is already unlocked, without jail-breaking. I got it “Officially” unlocked from my previous service provider.

    Thanks a bunch, bro.

  175. You can use Tata Docomo GPRS also like same vodafone……….if anybody want i can prove details for the same……

  176. i dont know how but suddenly my push mail service got activated on my iphone thru GPRS….:) happy

  177. @Mahesh
    Like I said earlier… “I have VMC (Vodafone Mobile Connect) and it works fine without changing anything on my factory-unlocked iphone 4. On my 3G (USA-specific but unlocked) I used the unlock from http://www.unlockit.co.nz and used my VMC plan.”

    I have a PostPaid connection.

    You’ll have to use a wifi connection to open the website in Safari. I doubt that it’s called jailbreaking as all the unlock website does is create a new APN (access point). Even Apple has an app on their support site to help you create a custom APN.

    Hope this helps.

  233. Hi, I was looking for GPRS settings for iPhone 4 on the web and i found this link. http://db.tt/fuRu86B
    Just open it in your phone’s safari browser and it will ask to download a profile to your phone.
    I tried it, it worked fine on safari and some of the apps (like FB, Yahoo Messenger, and couple of others). I have not tried it on all the apps though.

  256. Hi All

    For those for whom internet worked fine, but not other services like Mail,Skype etc, you just need to change the APN setting to ‘www’ instead of ‘portalnmms’. The VMC settings are given in vodafone site itself:
    http://www.vodafone.in/internet/pages/vodafonemobileconnect_kol.aspx?cid=kol

    I took 3gb free plan for Rs.199 on my Vodafone Postpaid by calling the customer care, and now the internet including mails, push messages, skype etc is running damn smooth on 3g for my Iphone 4 :) (4.0.1 OS)

    whats more, by using HotSpotShield VPN i iphone, i can even listen to AOL radio or Pandora \m/

  257. Currently living in Naples, Italy trying to use Vodafone services here, well I have a Iphone 4 version 4.2.1 and jailbroke and unlocked using Gevey Turbo Sim. However, my phone calls work fine, E-mail data service works flawless, the issue I have is my phone does not connect to the internet. Would this be simililar to above postings where I will need to designate my APN settings or is there something else I will need to configure. Very confused as I have data plan activated since I can recieve my e-mails just no internet.

  258. Hi everyone, ive got an iphone 4 (OS 4.2.1). Once i activated my data plan, vodafone tells me that I cant use the same data plan when on roaming, apparently since the Iphone4 hasnt been officialy launched in India, which i found kind of stupid. But anyway, i just cracked the network with this procedure. My only question is, whether my data plan will now work once I am on roaming. Would appreciate any responses regarding the same.

  259. @Rohit

    Hey thanks for this vodafone live is now working on my IPhone 3gs ios 4.1

    @ Rohit i tried ‘www’ but its not working.. I also have same plan as u have but its not working.. Can u help us out in this..?

  261. Do I need to activate ne vodafone live package???

  262. Hi I am using Iphone 3GS IOS 4.0 and changed the APN using Configuration Utility to http://WWW.Now I can surf the internet but my question is I use Vodafone Bonus card 21 and still its deducting from my balance. Is there any other settings for that , your help is indispensable in this regard…..

  263. Now I can surf d net via safari….but d problem is I can’t use ne app lik fb chat,app store,nimbuzz,watsapp etc…..my push notifications are also not working…Plz help me out…I tried changing my apn to www frm portalnmms but it didn’t work….

  264. Hey man…thanks a ton!!! it really works though a bit unstable but i’ll still take it! ;)

  265. @Rohit

    Hey Rohit,
    I have Iphone 4 (4.3.2). i completed the process.
    When i use “portalnmms” my mail works but skype and others dont.

    At the same time when i use “www” instead of “portalnmms” only skype works.

    Please suggest

  266. Thank you very much…. It works… :-)

  267. great solution. I amost gave up even after trying my best with the vodafone guys, but this worked well for me. I have an Iphone 3g (3.1.2) and have availed of the 6GB Rs. 198 data plan on my postpaid vodafone number

  268. Thanks man…works like a charm..thanks alot…

  269. Hi I have an iPhone 4 running on iOS 4.1. I have activated Vodafone Mobile Connect and I wanted to know if I have to go about this procedure in order to use the Internet as I just read:

    Java Chap “Guys all these configurations to use GPRS without Vodafone Mobile Connect. If you are planning to go with Vodafone Mobile Connect then you dont need all these configurations.”

  270. Hey guyz there is a way to do it directly from the phone as the config file can be opened from webpage or email (when yur over wifi ofcourse). So could some1 just upload the file and post the link so that it can be directly opened from iphone. I’m sure this works. Just don’t have an iPhone anymore. Planning to buy iPhone 4 soon.:)

  271. does, turning data roaming on, costs more than turning on, only cellular data..??what is exactly data roaming..turning it on is necessary only for other networks and not for home networks..can we just on only cellular data..pls rep..

  272. i hv tried many times to use gprs on iphone bt was unsuccessful. even i hv tried configuration utility but no on my iphone screen asking permission to install . m very disapointed please help me. m waiting

    • yeah when it asks for permission, click allow. What is the problem if it asks for permission. Step by Step instructions are given above. Please read carefully. You should be able to configure GPRS for Vodafone

  273. Hi,

    I installed this configuration utility and when trying to create a new name, identifier I am getting an error window which says “Object reference not set to an instance of an object”. This keeps on poping up for several times and I can not edit anything. I setup the Advanced settings for my IPhone but still things are not working.

    Can you please let me know if I am missing something here.

    Many thanks.

    Cheers,
    Prashant.

    First of all – Thanks for all your efforts.
    I have been using your procedure from past few months without any issue. However a couple of days back it stopped working. I am not sure if it has anything to do with the vodafone network. The proxy server name might have changed or something ? My friend is also facing the same issue. We are using iPhone 4 – iOS 4.3.

    Guys – is anyone else facing this issue?

    I installed the setting wit apn as www bt still my balance was deducted. Do i hv to deactivate 3g? Please help me out.
    Can some one guide me?

    • onkar if u have jailbreak phone , then just install a tweek name : SBSETTING FROM cydia
      in that u can disable the DATA connection when you don’t required . Becoz it will reset the ip setting to 127.0.0.1 which is goes to none .
      If not jailbreak then call the CC tell them to deactivate the data plan . hope it works ,
      rest read my comments

  303. any ony tried tethering ??? for that we have to send act iphone to 144.. charges are too much..:o any fix for this?

  344. Hi I am having Iphone4, purchased in Dec., from Dubai, and is a unlocked one, initially when I downloaded APN settings via method as you told by launching Iphone configuration utility, it worked fine, some 2-3 days ago I upgraded my software to 5.0.1 but then I was not able to connect to net, as it was saying that NOT SUBSCRIBED TO CELLULAR NETWORK”, then I again, downloaded my settings from Iphone configuration utility, it worked for 2-3 days fine, I was able to connect to net also, my mails were coming fine, but now it had stopped, Please tell me what to do??? I am in a fix now. Is there a problem with software 5.0.1, OR vodafone has done something deliberately, as I am using a microsim cut from my regular 3G sim.

  345. Link you have mentioned above to download the software is not working anymore…kindly suggest

  346. Dear friends,
    I have a better and easy solution which I found accidantly. I was using Vodafone normal plan in my 3GS till yesterday without any problem. But all of a sudden Vodafone stored the service yesterday. I could not able to edit the APN because if I insert Vodafone such a setting will not appear. So I desided to change to Idea which doesn’t have any restrictions. But with Idea I found that the speed is killing me, it’s dead slow. Then this amazing solution strikes me. Please find it below
    1) put an idea sim in your unlocked iphone
    2) once you turn ON mobile data, it will show you the editable data settings
    3) there will be 3 APN fields, for Internet, MMS and tethering
    3) put “www” in all the APN fields and keep all other left blank
    4) came out of the settings by pressing back to save the values
    5) remove the Idea sim( dont switch off phone) and put the Vodafone sim
    6) go to safari. It will start work like a charm. No need of any expensive plans. Whoever FKED Vodafone, please let me know at, sandeepkerala50@yahoo.com

    this all shit i faced man.
    no way out

  351. I called 111 and followed 2,2,9 option to get through and then i get an agent who was stoned out of his mind ( of course on weed or as some would call it, ganja ) and when i asked, he claimed he is ‘FIT’ it was hilarious then, a min ago i was pissed at the level of difficulty to spk to an agent and then he said that i should just buy a new phone and that’s the problem and for the echo and that my 3 month old blackberry cant process signal it seems and that i should buy 2000 rupee Nokia or NAAkia as he said it, eventually he just put me on hold and disconnected my call, i called back and this time i finally got some body better and by better i mean ‘not stoned’…. i believe that these agents most likely are 7th std or 10th std drop outs and the English is sooooooo fucked up. if i had to score either of them on the call with me from 1 to 10 , 1 being the worst i am sure that i can find the strength in me somewhere to give them a ’0′ Vodafone u should just DIE. I really mean it.

  352. Thanks, This works like a charm in iphone4

  353. Hi, thanks for the information. However, I do not see the Advanced option under ‘Configuration profiles’. I have downloaded the Configuration utility from the link you provided. Am I missing anything?

  354. HI, I could find the Advance settings..it is the same as APN settings. However, after connecting my Iphone4, the ‘Instal’ option under Configuration profiles (Utility) does not give any pop-up in my IPhone. I get a message that it cannot be installed.
    What am I missing?
