Enable or Disable GPRS/EDGE in iPhone - The Simple way

I use the iPhone 2g with Bharthi Airtel in  India. It Unlocked and jailbroken. I had a problem with editing APN settings (GPRS/EDGE settings), in fact, it's intentionally done by Carrier. They are hidden; you will not be able to see Cellular Data Network option under Settings-> General->Network-> Cellular Data Network

To enable or disable GPRS the only option, I think, is to change the settings here.

To do this all you need is
1.       Jailbroken iPhone with USB Cable
2.       A PC

You don't have to worry about Wi-Fi or SSH or WinSCP or even Cydia Download.

The procedure –ITS VERY SIMPLE J

1.       Download install iPhone explorer and plist editor for windows they are free and simple use
2.       Connect you iPhone via USB cable (make sure your iTunes recognizes it)
3.       Run iPhone explorer
Click on root. You will see a dialog box as shown bellow.



 Select first option say OK
 Browse to the carrier.plist as shown bellow






                you see the changes done in second snap.


  
       Edit the carrier.plist using plist editor and change as shown bellow


Add the following:



AllowEDGEEditing



After that

Save and copy back to iPhone using iPhone Explorer.

That all, we are done. No need to restart your iPhone.

If you have any problem, suggestions or comments please comment bellow

Connecting Bluetooth Dongle to PC


Having a problem connecting Bluetooth Dongle to your PC? Try these troubleshooting steps. You can try all of them in a sequence or each step in any order.

Some of the troubleshooting steps you can try

1. You must see the Bluetooth icon in the system tray (extreme right in the taskbar).

a. Right-click on the icon and select settings, under the options tab, check all the checkboxes (there are 4) and try.

b. You must pair them(computer and mobile) before transferring files.

2. If there is no Bluetooth icon in the system tray, unplug and plug it again into the USB port. Then do the settings part.

3. You can transfer files in 2 ways –

a. one- there will be software provided with the dongle. You can use that

b. two- you just install the driver of Bluetooth dongle and right-click on the Bluetooth icon and say RECEIVE A FILE or SEND A FILE.

4. You may have to do some workarounds to make it work.

Where is the back light settings in Nokia N70 and other higher end Nokia phones?

I did a lot of google search for the Nokia N70 backlight problem. Many people are facing this problem. Under setting>>Phone>>Display>> you don't have an option to switch it ON of Switch it OFF. Of course, it may not be absolutely required.
Another problem with backlight is time out delay. I found a thread in Nokia Forum stating the time out is happening after +30 seconds. Meaning, if you set it for 10 seconds the timeout happens after 40 seconds(10+30)
If anybody found a way to switch on/off backlight please inform in the comment section
