so I am given to understand, as EDGE isn't that common in Europe being mostly an American standard. This is one of the reasons that the first iPhone didn't sell in Japan, for example, the first Gen iPhone was 2G + EDGE.
EDGE is an extenion of the GSM (3GPP) standard, which originated in France

EDGE doesn't work in Japan because it's a 2G standard, and Japan junked all 2G networks years ago. They're years ahead of US/EU.
