    First it doesn't sound like you were on Edge, but GRPS.

    The phone uses in oder of prefference Wifi > 3G> Edge (an E icon)> GRPS (the small circle icon)

    You can turn off Wifi and 3G but not the other two, which your phone will use to excange data if wifi and 3g is off.

    (Unless you go to airplane mode, but then you won't get calls either.)
