    Plugged in my iPhone just today, and got prompted that new carrier settings are available. Downloaded it, and checked my Settings. The APN editing functionality is now available!

    Settings->General->Network->Cellular Data Network->

    so does this mean we can now turn off EDGE by changing the APN, with the the iPhone-Globe's default software? No more downloads to install? =)

    worked for me,

    once you install it, edit the apn to internet.globe.com.ph when you want to use 3g/edge, and then when you want to turn off 3g/edge just edit apn again by erasing h from ph

    i guess they had hard time inputting the prepaid apn, thats why they asked apple to open it up.

    So, simply put...In layman's terms, we can now turn OFF both 3G and EDGE in the iPhone (turning it essentially into an iPod Touch with a phone)? Am I right?
