Default Quick newb question

Please Login to Remove!

I haven't activated data services yet and it says "data connection refused", which i understand, but it says edge and not EDGE. What i'm wondering is that when i do activate data services will it say EDGE? (I read that EDGE is the full high speed data service with blackberry service?) Sorry if this is a dumb question.

The lower case "edge" means the phone hasn't connected with the Blackberry network yet. Once you activate a data plan on your phone, that signal will switch to uppercase "EDGE" because the phone will have checked in with Blackberry and downloaded your email and data services.
