So here goes...
South Florida Area ( Delray Beach )
1. Droid phone ( Verizon ) Always had 3G no matter even traveling through the remote parts of Ocala Area. Had a couple of 1x but it was rare.
2. Nexus One. Switches to Edge constantly. When this happens at work, I compare 2 G1s and another Tmobile Android phone and they show 3G. This has happened since I bought the phone and can be repeated easily. I compared a G1 and Nexus while traveling around general area near work and the Nexus will switch to EDGE more often than the G1 for sure.
Not sure what is going one here, but I will call Tmobile and will return the phone next week if it cannot be solved.
