Hey guys, I am with Telcel (in Mexico) and I have allways used GPRS, until recently they added Edge but the phones I had didn't have EDGE. I know telcel only has the edge plan for blackberry users, don't know why.
Anyways, I have an unlimited gprs plan with telcel, i had a question. why is it that I put my telcel gprs information (internet.itelcel.com, username and password) in the EDGE settings of the iphone and it works? why isnt there a specific area for GPRS settings in the iphone? I just find it interesting that my gprs info is in the edge settings and its working fine.

EDGE and GPRS are pretty much the same thing, EDGE being faster usually

EDGE stands for Enhanced Data Rates for GPRS Evolution, it is merely a faster transmission protocol based on GPRS.
