Today, I was trying to lookup some sports scores and game times and I got the following message on my iPhone “Could not activate EDGE”. This came out of nowhere and has now been coming up consistently for the past half hour. I’ve read some posts that say this could be due to hacking & tweaking the iPhone, however my iPhone is unhacked, and untweaked.
I think this is more of a periodic problem with the AT&T EDGE network. For some reason, Apple decided to use the outdated EDGE data plan instead of getting in bed with Sprint or another provider who offered something more “now”.
