Default 3G while roaming

For those of you who didn't know, US Cellular has recently signed a contract with Verizon to use their 3G on the USC network in all USC roaming areas. It used to be that while you were roaming, a 1x would show up on the upper right of your screen which means you are not getting 3G speeds. Anytime you are roaming now where there is a Verizon tower, you should get 3G and it will say EV.

Note: you may have to update your roaming data first. To do this, call *228 from your home area and wait about 30 seconds while it updates. You should get a confirmation and the phone will restart. Now 3G should be available anywhere there is a Verizon tower.
