Default GSM and EDGE issue

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I've been using my BlackBerry 8220 Pearl Flip for a while now without the data plan - essentially, only SMS. The EDGE title in the upper right changed yesterday to GSM. I've tried turning the connection on and off, and doing a hard reset... no luck. Of course, this doesn't mean too much as I didn't have data in the first place, but I'm just confused as to why this happened. Thanks.

Most likely your carrier is doing something (repairs to nearby towers perhaps?). This happened to me earlier this year. Had GSM for 2 days before EDGE came back.

Thanks - I'll wait a few days and see what happens.
