With my Curve 8900 on Orange UK I have GPRS coverage but not EDGE. I live in central London and I've called Orange who confirmed there should be EDGE coverage but I've only ever seen GPRS - not even a brief connection to anything else. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a setting that may be wrong? From reading I wonder if the APN is wrong. The network confirmed I should be able to get it on my connection.
Thanks in anticipation!

The APN setting does not control that. However, I know I have seen other UK users have this same problem. I know I have read on these and other forums that London proper does have EDGE, but many of the outlying areas suffer.
There could be a specific tower issue in your area.
There is not a setting specificically for GPRS to EDGE, but if you look at Manage Connections > Mobile Network, and UNcheck for 30 seconds until your signal goes OFF in the upper right hand corner. Then REcheck it to bring the signal back. Sometimes you might see it hit EDGE and bounce back to GPRS.
