    EDGE is the type of DATA service that is the evolution from the standard GPRS data services inherent to GSM cellular services.
    EDGE/EGPRS was implemented as a bolt-on enhancement for 2G and 2.5G GSM and GPRS networks.

    EDGE can carry data speeds up to 236.8 kbit/s but on average the throughput is between 60 to 120 kbit/s, depending on the congestion of the cellular tower to whom you are connected.

    It is said that Apple may release sometime this summer a 3G iPhone that conforms to a later evolution in data throughput. It may be UMTS were you can expect a downlink transfer rate of up to 384 kbit/s or HSDPA with downlink rates up to 3.6 Mbit/s.

    Your current iPhone will display an "E" when the cell tower is capable of providing EDGE data services, but by no means does it imply that you have that service available to you.
    For the service to be available to you, it is important that you subscribe to a data package from your cellular provider. My suggestion is that you choose an unlimited usage package as for a pay as you go for data can become quite expensive.
