Default Re: New to T-Mobile. Why does BB go from 3G to EDGE?

@dc/dc the weird thing is the 3G signal is full strength...yet when I open the browser (and sometimes randomly) it will go to EDGE full signal.
I just find it odd that it drops the full 3G to EDGE when it seems there is good 3G coverage here.

Well, you have to remember that the 3G and EDGE basestations are different pieces of equipment, different antennas, different everything. Your device will attempt to use 3G first, but if it cannot make a connection to the Internet within the specified time-out period, it will attempt EDGE, then GPRS.
