    I've had my evo since it came out a few months ago, and somethings been irking me: There's no way to tell which "kind" of 3G you're connected to. On my old Palm Pre, it would display either 1x or EV depending on which type of connection the phone had.

    Does anyone know if the Evo3D has a way to change it so instead of saying 3G, it says 1X or EVDO? Is there a way to do this if you root your device or anything like that? This is kind of important when streaming and/or video chatting.

    Mods feel free to move this to a different section if you believe it is more appropriate.

    Thanks guys

    see attached screen grab. there are icons when you are in 1X. just ask some of the folks who had the incorrect PRL.. :D

    if you have not seen it yet, then you are in a good area. ive seen the 1X pop up just before it would go to roam in some fringe areas...

    Hmm, I have open signal maps installed, and sometimes i go in there and look at the connection details (the i button on the bottom right of the overview screen) and it says that connection type is 1xRTT even when the screen says 3G up top. Odd. I'll try to get a screen capture next time it happens

    Exactly, on stock roms 1x wont display at all even when you are actually on 1x. Thats just how it is. Like last week when we had the bad prl, many people were saying that they were stuck on 1x and others were saying that they had 3g but when they ran speeds tests the speeds were garbage. That was because they were on 1x and didn't actually realize it but others that were running custom roms with that mod knew they were stuck on 1x.

    To add, every time you send a text message it switches to 1x, in the stock rom the 3g symbol will be grayed out at that moment instead of switching to 1x.

    Gotcha. Thanks for the help guys. Ive been thinking about rooting lately. Going to start reading thru all the material out there. Any suggestions on a good custom rom to start with?
