    Re: Difference between edge & EDGE

    I believe one is a Network provider, and other one is a type of network. I believe the network provider Edge, is located in the colorado area/south.

    Also you could be roaming on another providers network, and they might describe there edge network differently

    If you have EDGE service it means you have a data plan and are currrently using a carrier network that supports BB's.

    Re: Difference between edge & EDGE

    What I was able to find:
    EDGE- able to use the data functions on the device, which include PIN messages as well as the browser on the BlackBerry device.
    edge- indicates that the device is attempting to register on the GPRS network, and is still able to place or receive calls as well as send or receive SMS messages.
    GSM- indicates that the device is able to make and receive calls as well as send and receive SMS messages.
    X- indicates that the device is not receiving a signal.
    SOS- indicates that the device can place emergency calls only.

    Re: Difference between edge & EDGE

    edge - your BB is connected to your carrier's EDGE network

    EDGE - your BB is connected to RIM's network (a prerequisite for data services on all BB's)

    Re: Difference between edge & EDGE

    Im a newcomer.. and very newbie-ish. I do not have a Data plan. My Pearl says EDGE instead of edge. My Data says its turned off. Because it has the uppercase EDGE.. is it charging me for Data service?
