    It means it can't access EDGE. Does your phone provider have EDGE service?

    Find out what your service provider's APN settings are, (take a look http://www.taniwha.org.uk/gprs.html here).

    Then:

    Settings -> General -> Network -> EDGE ->

    And enter the APN details there.

    I did it and it worked, but now randomly "Safari can't find server"... and I am writing this and posting this, so I am pretty sure the internet is working...

    This happens from time to time on EDGE. Reset the phone or wait awhile.

    Reset=turn the phone off the back on. Not locking, but holding down the lock button until the power off slider appears on the screen.

    Restore=use the restore function in iTunes.
