when you are on your home screen, hold the back button (the little arrow to the left of the end call button.

tell us what you have listed there.

Bad etiquette to add a new question to an existing thread.

In any event, the 8220 Flip is Edge only. Not 3G.

EDGE downloads at about 80-90 kbps. Nothing you can do to speed it up. You can not ever get 3G on an 8220.

It is possible that at work it is on a WiFi network. EDGE, by definition, is slow.

my son just told me that I hijacked this thread, my lord...I am so sorry. So I bought a good phone, that will be slow getting on line and downloads (ringtone etc). Edge is slow, but I cannot get any faster. I want interweb, the lst ringtone is still downloading...can I use my laptop and a cable or something to do this....

If the WiFi indicator in the upper right hand corner is bright white, then you are using WiFi.

Using "Google" I found this - http://docs.blackberry.com/en/smartp...b8220_gprs.pdf

Also look in BlackBerry FAQ - BlackBerryFAQ

Searching and doing a bit of research will be a very good start.
