No Edge in Los Angeles?
Hello, I am a new 8700g owner and also new to the forums. I am on the T-Mobile network and am located in Downtown Los Angeles.
My previous phone was a SK2 which, while a decent device, was in the end not for me. I am learning to really love and appreciate my new BB, but I am growing concerned about its data speeds.
It is slow. As slow browsing as my old SK2 (if not slower at times). I had recently heard from a friend that there is no EDGE support in Los Angeles, but I definitely see "EDGE" listed on the screen. Another possibility I thought maybe my SIM was so old it is not properly compatible with the newer technology setups.
So my questions are:
-1. Is there full EDGE support in Los Angeles?
-2. How can I check my data speeds?
-3. What can I do to make my data faster for things like browsing?
I'm not sure.. but you can call tmobile support.. i'm sure they'll be able to help you out.
Based on the coverage map of T-Mobile, I can see their EDGE coverage; throughout the LA basin is truly limited. This is especially true with regards to their data roaming agreements.
I lost EDGE for a while here in San Antonio but its back now. 8-)
I am on the Cingular network and my EDGE coverage in Los Angeles is excellent.
There is EDGE coverage for TMO in LA.It just happens that sucks.
