FWIW, I did this registry hack & my phone is now displaying G when in GPRS territory, and E when in EDGE territory.
I just got back from a trip to Bangkok, where I use the DTAC network. When in parts of Bangkok where EDGE is available (Siam Square, Sukhumvit, Asoke, etc) my phone would display the E icon. When in areas with GPRS only (Saphan Kwai, Mo Chit, etc) then it displayed the G icon. My reported speeds on dslreports.com/mspeed confirmed my observations (GPRS approx 35-40k/sec, EDGE approx 75-80k/sec)
