    I know the specs for the EVO show it does 1xRTT, but I am not seeing a grphic icon showing when the phone is in this mode. I travel quite a bit and with my Hero I know areas where I would be switched over to 1XRTT, but now the EVO still only ever shows 3G.

    Can anyone verify if there is a dedicated icon for 1XRTT or has HTC rolled everything under the 3G icon?

    According to the EVO's user manual (page 10 to be exact), there is a "1x" icon that replaces the "3G" icon in the notification area.

    Confirmed on my evo as well. When I enter a Verizon roaming area, which should be 1x only, the evo displays 3G anyway. Speed tests confirm that it is really on 1x.

    It looks like this is still the case after the 2.2 update. Anyone else still seeing this?

    I noticed this on day one, it is annoying. Also you can't set the phone to 1x connection only like you could on the hero. I used to do that for my airave.
