Why I am writing this :
I am owning an iPhone4 in India[Chennai] and went to Vodafone Store for GPRS settings.The executive told me Sir,For iPhone we have a special package and the Tariff is as follows :
Pay Rs.100 as monthly Rental and you will be charged 10 Paise for 10 KB and No Booster/Add-On`s available.
I felt really bad and did a quite research and made this working !! !!
Remember we are not Hacking Vodafone server/settings :P !! !! We are Just creating a profile in our iPhone for getting the normal EDGE/GPRS settings !! !!
I have activated 98 RS GPRS pack and the speed of connection is Quite OK [SPEED : 0.09Mbps]
Something is better than Nothing !!
Try These In-case you are not receiving the EDGE connectivity :
- Make sure you have turned this on your iPhone Settings>>CellularData>>ON
- SMS ACT VMC to 144
- wait for reply from 144
- Restart your iPhone and check for the EDGE connection
- You must see "E"symbol in your status bar near to your signal Bar
- Now open safari and check whether you are able to hit "google.com"
