GPRS or EDGE is good for BB services. You cannot select it, your bb will receive it when you are within range and receiving that signal.

You are going to have to contact your carrier. There is no way to select GRPS or EDGE.

Edge in small letters means calls and texts only no BB services you need GPRS or EDGE in capitals. Signal strength depends where you live I guess. I live in N Ireland and my phone alternates between GPRS & EDGE but by and large it is GPRS. Everything works fine.
