    capital EDGE is going to be the best that you can get with your pearl...

    then it goes to edge
    then GPRS
    then gprs
    then GSM
    then gsm

    no, when you goto options then status the first thing you see is your signal strength. I just don't know what is good or bad

    GPRS (General Packet Radio Services) is a packet-based wireless communication service that, when available in late 2000, promises data rates from 56 up to 114 Kbps and continuous connection to the Internet for mobile phone and computer users. The reality will be around 33 Kbps (2+1 or 3+1 @ CS2, 4+1 for fixed modem). GPRS is based on "regular" GSM (with the same modulation) and will complement existing services such circuit-switched cellular phone connections such as SMS or cell broadcast. Voice over Ip over GPRS is also explored.

    Enhanced Data rates for Global Evolution (EDGE) is a radio based high-speed mobile data standard. It allows data transmission speeds of 384 kbps to be achieved when all eight timeslots are used. In fact, EDGE was formerly called GSM384. This means a maximum bit rate of 48 kbps per timeslot. Even higher speeds may be available in good radio conditions.

    (from www.3g-generation.com/gprs_and_edge.htm)

    pretty much GPRS is what all the older phones have and EDGE is what the newer phones have. EDGE is faster. (WiFi is fastest, but can't enjoy it yet...soon though! )
