Signal weak

I'm assuming that your cell phone works fine.

Your cell phone gets its signals from cell towers serving your cell phone service provider, e.g. Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile.

If you are in a building or elevator, your signal can be weak. Try going to the edge / side / top of a building, like by a glass window to see if the signal is stronger.
Or if your cell phone service provider (phone company) doesn't have a cell tower close to where you are, the signal can be weak or nil.
You can find out your cell phone company's cell tower coverage areas checking their website. If you are at locations where your cell phone service provider has good coverage, you will get stronger signals. Otherwise, expect to get weak signals.
Yes, it's always prudent to check which cell phone service provider has good cell (tower) coverage in areas where you are (using your cell phone) most of the time, and subscribe to that company's cell phone service.

My 2012 ford edge FM radio will not seek. You can change the radio station with the tune button, but the seek just goes through all the channels and only stops once. I am able to get all the channels if...

The seek function can find only one signal strong enough to lock on. You may find that moving to another location causes the seek function to work the way it should.

No 3gs icon on screen, slow connection

You are most likely in an area that has little to no 3G signal, hence your phone has reverted back to the more reliable (however slow) Edge data connection. Please refer to this guide for a reference. Blue refers to 3G network while orange refers to the Edge network. sellers737.jpg

I have "E" on deskop

E comes from Edge. Edge is a type of data connection. It should not affect SMS receiving. Most likely you had no signal at that time.
