    i don't think the phone always stays connected to EDGE (like when the screen goes off). someone said that if you change the screen settings in the general section to "never go off automatically", the phone will stay connected to EDGE. remember that the phone was not built to be tethered, nor was the EDGE configuration, so some tweaking should be expected.

    other than that...i have not tethered mine yet, but i'll give it a go this weekend and post any new findings if you don't get it working.
