What wireless provider do you have your account with?
What wireless provider is branded on the device?

Without any information, we can only guess at the reason.

My guess... you have a 9700 which doesn't support the 3G bands that your wireless provider uses.

Please do not post using "text speak". It makes your post much too difficult to read and understand. Use some proper sentence structure, punctuation and capitalization to make it more readable.

The blackberry 9700 has 2 versions for 3G:

1. HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100
2. HSDPA 900 / 1700 / 2100

I think the first one is for ATT and the 2nd one is for Tmobile, I do have the Tmobile version and my carrier does have 3G but on only for 850/1900 so I have the same problem as you, only shows EDGE not 3G.

Bad news for you buddy, no matter what you do you cannot change it to 3G.

Ref Post #2: What wireless provider is branded on the device?

Are you in an area where your carrier has 3G coverage?
