    Has it always been like this since you had the phone?

    Are you sure you are on a specific BIS data plan. Legacy BBOS devices like your Curve require a BlackBerry-specific data plan. I'd contact your carrier to be sure.

    Small letters "edge" is an indication that your BIS activation with Vodacom is in actual fact not done (from Vodacom's side). Once Vodacom activates BIS, the letters will display as "EDGE". You have to go in to a Vodacom store for them to rectify the problem. It may be an issue on their side or it can be a contract issue as well.

    Edit: you can request when your upgrade date is due by sending UG to 31050 (this is a free SMS)
