No the 7290 cannot be firmwared to EDGE its chipset is not capable of utilizing EDGE.... Perhaps i didn't make myself clear on my reply for that I apologize. The intent of my first reply was to advise the OP that the 8700's chipset from intel already has the ability to utilize the UMTS network, and that more than likely it would just require reprogramming to allow access to that network....

Or in more simple english the 7290 does not have the hardware onboard necessary to access the EDGE network, while the 8700 should have the hardware necessary to access the UMTS network should there be a firmware update to the Intel chipset....
