Default Edge / GPRS

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

another question, my 8800 is connecting using GPRS, I understand that EDGE provides better transfer rates. Is the 8800 EDGE compatible and can I switch transfer methods? Probably a stupid question I'm sorry If it is

Just want to get the best out of my device. I'm on Vodafone in the UK if it's relevant.

Thanks
Dan

EDGE is not available in the UK on Vodafone. Vodafone skipped EDGE and went right to 3G (the 8707v model).

You can not switch from GPRS to EDGE; sorry.

thanks for that, it's a shame because it would be nice to have slightly faster data speeds but still, email works a treat!

Hopefully my next BB will be 3G or whatever is around then
