    Have recently been noticing my phone saying 1g alot in Philadelphia and South Jersey. Any one else noticing this? Any ideas as to why i would only be getting 1 g coverage.

    Also whats the deal with the google nav update? Is that coming with 2.0 or will we get it in the current OS?

    my buddy has a my touch on tmobile and he got it already.

    you know honestly I didn't look that closely. I think it says 1g. I'll keep an eye. Where it normally says 3g it changes and says, I believe 1g, right now its 3g....i'll update when i notice it again.

    i know you can force it to go to 2g...did you mess with that setting?
    im in the philly area (delaware county) and im noticing, lately i`ve been getting more 3g.
    have you done the *228 option 1 and 2?

    I haven't. What is the *228 thing? It definitely is a 1 and not a 2 so i'm thinking maybe it is saying 1x when i dont have 3g? if that is the case what does 1x mean anyway?

    so if its 1x it doesn't necessarily mean i'm not still getting 3g?

    from your phone dial *228 select option one then wait.
    then dial *228 and select option 2 and wait.
    reboot (power it down) and see what u get.

    what does that do though? what is the purpose of doing that?

    most likeley you aren't getting 3g on 1x since verizon is the one with the big 3g network. since this has to do with the fcc. extended networks probably don't have 3g due to signal interferance if they are near a verizon node due to the same bandwidths. fcc controls where those 3g towers are and if it blocks thier perfered cell service then no 3g for you.
