Tony, one of our readers, wanted to share with us a working procedure even on non-jailbroken devices, and today we want to share it with you too.
The fully functional guide with all iPhones that support iOS 8 (excluding the iPhone 4S, as the problem does not exist).
NOTE:after installing the app and applying the patch, you may no longer be able to connect in 4G. To restore its operation cancel the app and then go toSettings -> General -> Restore -> Reset network settings.
Guide to enable 2G network on iPhone without Jailbreak
- A popup will open. Click on Install.
- Return to the Home Screen. You should see the app GPP 3to2 installed on the iPhone. Start it.
- At the first start you will be asked for permission to start the app. Click on authorize.
- Lapp composed of two links. Selecting the first one, the patch is enabled and your iPhone will connect to the 2G network while pressing the second link will disable the patch and you can go back to connecting in 3G.
The very simple solution and it works even without Jailbreak. Whenever you want to lock the 2G network to save battery, just open the app and click on the relevant link.
Thanks again Tony for sharing this procedure with us.
