All I can get is EDGE. I didn't change anything in the phone, it sort of just happened within the past few days.
I pulled the battery and restarted- no luck, it seems to fluctuate in/out of 3G and back to EDGE. I'm going in/out of Unreachable on BBM as well. Is there anything I can double check in my phone? When I go to use the browser, it works, but then stops working after a few pages, my coverage bars drop, then it switches to EDGE.....?
When you installed .266 is you wipe your phone, then during the installation tell the DM that you didn't want to backup the software and settings in your device; this usually erases everything before installing the latest firmware.
I do this with my device everytime I install a new OS and find I have less problems in the end than doing as more of an upgrade installing the OS over top of whats already in the phone. Plus I use BES so I am not worried about the data in my device.
The other thing is there could be an issue with your device and you need to have it replaced or it's a AT&T network probelm.
