I'm sorry, but you are totally, 100% wrong on all counts, and the person you spoke to was also wrong.
1. If you want a BlackBerry device to function properly, you need a BlackBerry data plan
2. Uppercase/lowercase has nothing to do with signal strength. It is an indication of whether your device can access the RIM infrastructure. You will only receive uppercase GPRS or EDGE if you have a BlackBerry data plan
3. Your sister DOES NOT have uppercase EDGE if she doesn't have a BlackBerry data plan
