Random Internet Connections
I have a 2G Iphone which has been jailbroken, unlocked and is running on version 3.0.0 software. I am using the phone on Virgin who provides a facility to view recent calls. From this I have discovered that the phone is somehow connecting to the internet via Virgin - even though wifi is available - and will try to connect every 15 minutes or so until I switch the phone off and restart it again. At first I thought it may be an app but all have been removed now and I am operating with the facilities provided with the basic phone. Can anybody help or throw any light as to who or what is doing this ?

Ah ok that makes it a bit easier as I'm Vodafone in the UK. 1st thing to note is you should update to the latest firmware for the 2G (3.1.3) and there is a pretty good unlock/jailbreak tutorial here for both windows and mac iClarified - Unlock Wizard for iPhone
Maybe this alone will fix the problem?
Can you also answer these questions (will help work out whats the problem. then we can work on a fix)
1) Can you connect to other Wi-Fi routers without it dropping out?
2) What type of Wi-Fi are you connecting to? (Home or public like Starbucks or The Cloud)
3) Do you want it to connect to internet via Virgin at all? (like when out in town)
