I have a couple of BBxxx8217;s and one does the same thing, floats between edge and gsm. I have tried replacing the software also. I have come to the conclusion that the radio receivers become less sensitive over time and unless you are near a strong signal you will see the issue you are seeing. You may have found the reason it was on Ebay.
As Sith_Apprentice said above, check the color of the wet indicator under the cover. It should be white ( at least it is on mine ) If you purchased it from a reputable seller on Ebay you may be able to return it.
Also it will not do reliable data unless it gets to EDGE ( uppper case )
