Only Poynt won't work.
I NEED EDGE for data. It's why i'm on the bb and not any htc phones. Anyway, I wanted to go to .141 or .144 and use swap a radio to .75. Swap a radio indicates .75 may brick later java. Any confirmation of this and which OS's exactly are not good with the .75 swap
Many of the third party applications use the APN/TCP connection rather than the BIS connection. For some reason, and I don't understand it fully, apps like TeleNav, Shazam, Pandora and others will cause your EDGE to drop to 'edge' when accessing the TCP ports. I don't know a way around it, and I have spoked with a couple of developers at WES last week about it.
This only happens on the 9530 devices unlocked using a GSM carrier, like Tmo, ATT, etc.
