    I had been pulling my hair out trying to figure out why my Incredible wouldn't work with the network extender I recently bought. Hightech answered and solved my problem. When on EVRC B, I saw better signal and could receive calls, but could not make calls. When talking with VZW tech support I asked if using the EVRC B would affect that. He was a little miffed and said you shouldn't be into that section of the phone. I switched to plain EVRC, but forgot that there were three settings I had changed to EVRC B; Home Page, Home Orig, and Roam Orig. If any of these are set to the "B" option, you will not be able to make calls. Also after you change the EVRC settings, make sure to press the Menu button just under the touchscreen and press commit change or commit modification to make sure it accepts the change.

    UPDATE: After a message from dsauch I did a little experimenting. Home Page and Home Orig CAN be set to EVRC B, but Roam Orig can NOT be set to EVRC B for the network extender to work. Thanks dsauch for that info. When I was trying to get the network extender to work, I believe my Home Orig and Roam Orig were still set to the B option. I could've tried all different variations of EVRC/EVRC B to get the NE to work, but I just wanted to be able to dial out. So again, if you want to use EVRC B and a network extender, make sure that Roam Orig is set to EVRC (not EVRC B). Home Page and Home Orig can be set either way. Thanks again dsauch.

    mine is set to B, except the roaming and it works just fine with network extender.
    I did have issues dialing numbers from corp address book, because all numbers are prefixed with + and extender did not process it properly.
    After opening the case with verizon and doing some calls - they traced it to wrong conversion and put a fix in place. No issues at all now, except NE outage they had a day or so ago ;-)

    I don't know what the difference would be. I just got a reply from someone I PM'd on the Verizon forum who was having the exact same issues as me. When I went to switch to standard two of my settings had EVRC B, one of which was Roam Orig. Maybe that is the key, to have Roam Orig set to standard EVRC but the other 2 can be set either way. I myself am not going to take this further, as the only time I noticed a difference in sound quality is in the area where the network extender currently is, and the sound quality issue has been solved with the higher signal strength. But thanks for your info, it may help people who are still having the sound quality problem with the network extender.
