    my phone shows ev in the status bar , but I cant seem to pull up the 1x which is the symbol for the 3g network... went to the local sprint store and he said its doing what it should do... just want to make sure i am gettinng all the speed i am paying for... where I live it shows a strong 3g coverage...

    Thanks......

    If you have the ev icon you are in an evdo area which means that you are getting all the speed of 3g. The 1x icon is for non-evdo areas. Sadly, that's all that is available in my area.

    1x is 3g, according to sprint.
    I don't know why they say that, considering EVDO Rev A is the same speed as other carriers 3g.

    no sprint uses a combination of 2g and 3g. 1xrtt and evdo. 1xrtt has a max speeds of 144 kbps and evdo had a max of 2.4 mbps. sprint cs is known for being clueless.

    Yup, 1x = 1xRTT, ev = EVDO.

    1x is 2G, ev is 3G.

    What I stated was sprint calls 1xrtt 3g. I know it not actually 3g, but that is what Sprint calls it in all its documents.
    Actually, 1x is faster than 2g.
    To save confusion, why don't we just do this: 1xRtt, EVDO Rev 0 and EVDO Rev A.
    The whole 3g thing has gotten carried away.

    Correct.... when you have the Ev symbol... that is the one you want.... if you don't believe me... try surfing the web whe you have 1x.... then you will understand.

    I believe when you are on 4g, the icon you see in your notification bar is little pair of buttcheeks with flames

    the manual states that when 1xrtt is active and transferring data you cannot receive calls, that sucks

    I've heard that you can't use data and voice at the same time. But if you're receiving a call, doesn't it disconnect the data? I'm on the web browser all the time and nobody complains about me never answering calls.

    that sums it up for me.
    But also, don't forget: pink = the new black.

    They might have meant 1xEVDO. People just got lazy and left the 1x off it.

    BLAH!
    1xRTT is 2.5g (as it is currently implemeneted) and has the capability of being considered a 3g technology, but not in its current implementation.. Your phone is ALWAYS connected to 1xRTT (unless you have no signal).. Even if you are in an EVDO coverage area...
    1xRTT is used for all CDMA Voice and Text communications.
    EV (EVDO (rev 0 and A) are the 3g that we have come to know and love as CDMA 3g... When your phone says EV on it, you have both EVDO (rev A in the moments case) and 1xRTT service.. When your phone says 1x on it, you have 1xRTT services BUT NOT EVDO...
    1xEV (as seen on most blackberries) is not a new signal.. all that stands for is you have 1xRTT coverage (the 1x part) and EVDO coverage (the EV or EVDO part).. Instead of it being implied by the fact that if you are in evdo you have to be in 1xRTT they just put it in the little icon to show you are connected to both..

    Sprint doesn't have to say it.. look up 3GPP2.. they are the ones who claim it...
    Question.. How many people that are responding to this thread even know what 3g stands for?

    Hint: EDGE, UMTS, and CDMA2000 are all 3g technologies.. One reason i believe AT&T Should have won in their false advertisement lawsuit against Verizon...
