I have first generation iPhone 8gb. I got it the very first day it came out in June of 07. Has been a perfect phone up untill this morning. My edge is not working and the edge "E" symbol is completely gone from my screen. Everything on the phone works just fine, and I can go online with my WIFI, howerver for one reason or another edge can't be initiated. My edge connection has been on and off yesturday but came back last night. And this morning I noticed the icon is entirely gone. Here are the steps I have already completed. 1. Reset. 2. Hard Reset. 3. Remove/Reinstall SIM card. 4. Reset without SIM card. 5. Restored. After all of that the EDGE is still not working. I'm beginning to think the modem on my phone broke. I don't think this is a data network outage. I don't want to get the 3G iphone cause I wanted get a good use out of this one and I'm waiting for the 32GB one, but looks like I might have no choice.
