Edge is better than 2G but not as good as 3G and obviously a signal is required. Can you connect to WiFi networks?
If you are positive that you have a data plan that provides you browser access Virgin, then try these steps first:
1) Register HRT
2) Resend Service Books:
If those steps do not enable your browser over the network, then contact Virgin. Oh, and let us know how it goes.

I try and use wifi for that reason and at home its free and also free for me as a BT Broadband customer on BT FON and Openzone.
In the absense of wifi, my BB usually displays GPRS but I have seen it say Edge before. So its likely that it will pick up Edge (or edge if signal not so good) if there is a signal. There doesn't appear to be an option to set Edge on the BB although there may be on an android phone.
At the end of the day wifi will produce the best connection and up/download.
