When I go am trying to access the 3g on my phone instead of getting 3G at the top I get E and I cannot access the internet. What does the "E" mean?

It could be error but it might be E for edge network. You might not be able to access the Internet on edge but you should be able to.

E stands for Edge......it's the slowest speed of gsm access.

As you move location and your signal strength increases.....the same indicator should change to G (3G next fastest ) or H ( HSPA fastest )
