APPS functioning on EDGE

Hi: Will there be a problem running apps on an unlocked smartphone that only picks up "G" and "Edge" ? I am interested in the weather widgets and some of the games from the apps store, but am unsure if they would work if I downloaded them...

Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

Anndroid154 is right! They will still work as long as you have service connection, whetehr its edge to wifi (lol i typed wif"e"!)  I live in an area that was "EDGE" for years, now i am picking up hsdpa.  But when I would turn off my wi-fi and use an app that required internet connection, it still worked... slower than normal, but worked.

 

I am not sure about the latest version of Android Market but 2 or 3 mods back, it used to kick in my data service just to load the market, as if overriding wi-fi.  It still navigated rather nicely even it was a slight slower than normal.
