Pantech Impact Edge Session icon

Hi. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place, but I keep getting a big E on my screen and when I look in my manual it says that it means that an Edge session is available. What is an Edge session?

That means you are in an area where only "EDGE" service is available and not the faster 3G service. Were you to connect to the internet, your download/upload speeds would not be very fast. Any sites that aren't graphic's intensive, would be quite usable, tho.

Thanks for the information. It just started showing up on my phone this past week and I thought it was showing I was connected to the internet. Oh what a relief off my mind, because I don't have a data plan.

I have a data plan and this morning I had the same E on my screen for the first time and I was home. I noticed it because I was attempting to access my bill and the Pantech was having difficulties connecting to the internet. In my case since I was home when this occurred one does not necessarily need to be out of range for this to occur.
