    What is the diff between EDGE and edge?

    When I'm on EDGE everything works great. When I'm on edge, I get no emails and internet. Any thoughts?

    When EDGE appears, you are connected to the Blackberry Internet Service server. Sometimes if there is a connection problem you get disconnected and "edge" appears instead.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    EDGE means that you have GPRS signal and data service is available. edge means that you have GPRS signal, but no data service is available.

    As dclawyer and Russ indicated:

    EDGE and GPRS = data service
    edge and gprs = no data service

    Techically, you have data service with lowercase edge and gprs. You just don't have Blackberry data service (effectively no service on a BB). Other EDGE and GPRS devices would work in cases where a BB gets lowercase edge or gprs.

    The manuals explain this.
