    i know its a stupid question, but what is the difference between edge, and 3g? That and if your using edge does it use up your 3g data plan?

    Edge is 2G network while 3G is obviously 3G network. And yes if you use Edge, you still use up your 3G data plan. So there is no point in using Edge unless of course you like to conserve your battery by turning 3G off

    Does Edge use your data plan less than 3G? Just wondering.

    no? it'll just use its slower you're still pulling x amount of data from location y so you're using x amount of data on your plan
