    Has anyone else noticed that, in an area that has EDGE, sometimes you can't pick it up.

    I'm at work (a place that I can pick EDGE up) and all of a sudden the little blue 'E' vanishes, and I'm left with a lowly empty blue square!!!

    Maybe a tactic by o2 to keep everyones data useage down. I wouldn't be suprised!

    I've seen that also. I think the blue square means you have some other type of data connection that is less than EDGE. Don't remember what they called that, but I think there are some places where even EDGE may not be available...

    Yea, the all blue indicates Just GPRS.

    I know there are alot of places that dont have EDGE, but its when i know im in an area that does, it goes off for an hour or two.

    Very frustrating!!! :mad:

    It means that you are on standard non edge data GPRS. Same thing happens when I go to my parents house in a remote area.

    I have not been off of edge yet. Its either wi-fi or edge. Should be interesting when it finally happens.

    I have noticed this A LOT since updating to 1.1.2, and I live in the middle of San Francisco!

    That's what I like to hear. I'm moving to LA next month, and purchase #1 will be an iPhone.:D
