    It seems that the release of a 3G iPhone is just around the corner (rumored second quarter) but wanted to know about the existing network. AT&T has indicated it has expanded its 3G network but I am left with the impression that coverage is still not nearly as widespread as Edge. So here's the question: Is it possible that new 3G phones will work on Edge AS WELL? Or is it one or the other?

    I'm thinking I'd rather have a slower network all of the time than a fast one only some of the time.

    All 3G phones in the US have EDGE capability. They have to, 3G coverage is too spotty right now and wouldn't be able to roam
