What's the 'E' On My iPhone?

I have an iPhone 4 running iOS 4.x (whatever is the most current as of 6/28/11). In the upper left-hand corner it usually says 3G when I'm out and about but last night it said E. I checked carefully and it definitely had an E rather than 3G.

What does E stand for?

Your battery is on Empty or you are living on the Edge.
The E stands for Edge Network. If you're in an area where 3G coverage is spotty or unavailable your phone will automatically drop you down to the slower EDGE network.

OK, and thanks for the explanation.
