    ok well i use fido (its a canadian cell company) thay are all good n all but i got the iphone and the iphone firmware actually DOES NOT allow you to edit the carrier wap settings so i had no idea everytime i was using wifi i was using the mobile internet on my phone. Now i hacked into my phone and fixed the problem so i can see and edit my mobile internet settings but i have a charge of about 50$ and i DO NOT want to pay this. I called once and talked to this lady shes like it your fault na na na. I am not willing to pay this because i had no intention of doing this and my phone didnt even allow me to edit my settings at first for the mobile connection to internet.

    I have an iphone but it is not from them.

    Sounds like it's your problem to me.
    " iphone firmware actually DOES NOT allow you to edit the carrier wap settings"
    If you didn't get the IPhone from them then its your problem. You should have checked.

    no here let me explain that part

    i had another carrier called rogers and i was able ot do that but then i switched to fido. as soon as i put in the sim card the options for netwrok settings changed, on being me able to edit the network settings to acess their portable web service. ALL fido iphones have this. This is one of those things the cell company tries to screw you over on. i actually had to edit and add a line of code after googling how to re-enable me editing the network settings for the carrier.

    Although at first i didnt not know i was even using their internet as i only used wifi and assumed internet would be disabled. only then i got a txt saying pretty much LOL U PWNED GIMME 50$
