    I am currently on a family plan with T-Mobile. My line does not have a data plan, but still displays an E symbol. Is this normal or is my line leeching off another line's data plan?

    I apologize for bumping this old thread.

    No EDGE is just the cell phone network you are on and the technology you are using to communicate with the cellular network.

    EDGE, 3G, etc....

    If you really wanna learn about cell networks, here is an interesting read: http://www.devx.com/wireless/Article/11422

    how do you get rid of it? i already have the 3G off, but E still pops up. it's draining my battery off ridiculously. it won't even hold a usage of more than 8-12 hrs ever since E started popping up. and this is without using any of the apps! just basic calling and texting.

    E showed up all of a sudden when my iphone wasn't charged and just died. really odd, because E never showed up once beforehand.

    please help! it's really annoying! thank you in advance.

    You can down load it from cydia. It's a featured package and free.

    your phone needs to be jailbroken for you to get cydia. if it isn't, you can't get sbsettings.

    but it doesn't matter anyway. the E just means that edge is technically available at your current location. it doesn't mean that edge is actually IN USE. imagine it to be the same as your signal bars. just because you have a cell signal doesn't mean you are actually calling someone, does it?

    if your battery is draining awefully fast this can have A LOT of reasons. one being that ever since 3.0 numerous users have battery issues with their iphone. it could also mean that the iphone is downloading data in the background (internet is one of the biggest battery drainers). you should call your carrier and check for that and maybe block data transmission for your sim-card, as this can get quite expensive!

    if it's not too much trouble, you could try restoring your iphone via itunes and see if that solves your battery issue.

    E shows up when you are in range of an edge signal,
    not just when its on.
    edge will not drain the battery

    Cydia is an application that comes with a jailbroken firmware, You wont have it until you jailbreak your iPhone. You should be able to get rid of the "E" symbol by turning 3G on inside your settings, you dont necessarily need SBSettings.
