    reset your network settings, that did the trick for me:

    Settings>general>reset>Reset Network Settings

    It seems Swirly can mess up your normal edge settings but this resets it ok, you will lose any Wifi network access history so will need to type that in again.

    This fix helped me as well. I had a problem where iPhone could not connect to the server. Nothing worked on Edge and this saved me from doing another damn restore. I JUST fixed Customize on 1.1.4 and did not want to lose everything again.

    Default Could Not Activate EDGE
    I seem to be having the same issue. I had previously jailbroken and unlocked iPhone using ZiPhone v2.5. Everything was functioning as it should be, except for the occasional issue connecting my Apple BT headset to the iPhone.

    A few days ago, I had to restore my iPhone so I decided to jailbreak and unlock using iLiberty+ (v1.5.1). Now it seems that for about 30-50% of the time when I try to connect using EDGE (Google Maps, Safari, etc.) I get the dreaded message of "could not activate EDGE". I have verified my Network settings to be correct. I have tried resetting my Network Settings and that helped a little but I still am faced with this issue.

    I also noticed that with BossPrefs, when EDGE is "activated" there is an IP address in the brackets and when it isn't activated its just "N/A" in brackets where the IP address would be.

    - iPhone 1.1.4 (3.9BL originally and still the same) 04.04.05_G
    - Jailbroken and unlocked using ZiPhone 2.5 (everything functioned perfectly except BT headset)
    - Restored iPhone
    - Jailbroken and Unlocked using iLiberty+ (v1.5.1)
    - EDGE settings (APN, etc.) have been verified as correct.
    - Tried Resetting Network Settings but not much improvement

    Any insight to this issue would be great.

    thanks,

    haha, well, when i posted this, restoring took too long and involved reinstalling all your apps and themes(i have a LOT) and the above method worked for me. but, now that iPwnage and the IPSWBuilder is out it's a lot easier lol

    Hi guys, i have been using my 8gig, jailbroken iphone, fmw 1.1.4 for several months now and it worked great.. until today.. out of the blue, the edge icon disappeared, dunno why, just did, and (i use summerboard, using blackjaindim...) the weather icon, stopped displaing itself as it shoul being in the blackjaindim mode, and it went back to being the regular "sun icon" that the phone originally has showed up... So what i did was, i first changed the international settings back to region format USA (instead of australia which a friend of mine changed a day before...) tured it off and on.. and the weather icon was back to normal... but STILL NO EDGE ICON OR EDGE ON MY PHONE... i called my phone service provider (CLARO, Guatemala..) and my service is up on their computer.. so its a problem on my phone...

    ALLREADY tried to reset the network settings and NOTHING happend.. when i go i the BOSSPREFFS i get edge (supposittly on...) but there is a "(N/A)" showing next to it....

    PLEASE HELP ME, i dont want to restore my phone again!!! to mani apps installed, fixed all the glitches and have no clue how to get edge back...
    IM not a programer, so if you could help me out with a simple procedure i would appreciate it...
    many thanks.

    For all of those still interested, I was having a similar problem as the above posters. It seemed to happen after installing the new version of Intelliscreen, when my reception, edge, and wifi all stopped working. I uninstalled naturally and the problem seemed to be fixed, but though the Edge icon was up, the connection was not working. Various errors were returned including something about not being able to "verify PDP" or "Could not find Server." After doing the Connection Reset around 5 or 6 times, Edge now appears to be working as I'm posting this through it. Good Luck!!!!
    Cut and paste your but.
