    Re: Whats up with edge?


    I live at the Grand Canyon. The tower is about 2 milles away from me and I have line of sight at typically -57dbM. This weekend even with EDGE everything was slow. So I'm inclined to believe that it was a network issue.

    Not quite,

    neither are really 3g, more like 2-1/2g and

    edge: means that the BB Device is connected to an Edge capable tower, but is not fully connected to the RIM Network. No Blackberry Data. Phone and SMS/MMS only

    EDGE: means that the BB Devive is connected to an Edge capable tower and has full connectivity with the RIM network. Blackberry Data services should work.

    How ever, Late last night and this morning, I had EDGE but could not browse at all. Email and PIN would show sent, but no email are PINs would be received (Sent from my BB to my BB as a test). Later in the morning the email and PIN came through fine and now I can browse.

    Hope this helps

    Also what may be the problem is your location, meaning the building you are in.

    I live in San Francisco and I get "EDGE" indicated at all times. For the past three weeks have not seen any issues.

    BUT..... when I visit this girl's condo in Redwood Shores, which is about 5 miles south of the SF Airport, I get no connection whatsoever. Odd thing is that Oracle has its headquarters about three blocks away from her place. So you would think T-Mo would make sure that area had good coverage.

    So that leads me to believe her condo must have something in the construction that blocks the T-Mo tower. But even her Cingular phone gets lousy coverage in her place. Calls drop all the time.

    That said, you might want to walk around your girl's building and see if there still are signal issues [and also the neighborhood]. I know that T-Mo and other carriers cannot place towers in every place they would like too because people say "not in my neighborhood." It's not the same as in Manhattan where there are probably towers on every block.
