When it's on WiFi I can tell signal strength but when I'm on EDGE it's just a blue E. Is there a way I can tell how strong the signal is?

Basically take a look at how your signal strength is to the left of the EDGE symbol.

Basic rule of thumb is if that reception is good, your EDGE connection will be decent. If you only have one bar then your page will probably take a good 5 mins to load.

Your edge signal is basically the same thing as your phone signal. As long as you have a signal from the tower you should have connection to the edge network.
