    Hi. I have a HTC Hero with Sprint. I never see the 3G symbol on my phone when I'm in a 3G area, I only see the EV indicator.

    Thanks in advance,
    Robert

    I believe that is 3G. There is another symbol in the instructions for non 3G. There's smarter folks here that explain it better. I would like to know what the 1XRTT data service is anyway. TC

    Thing of Evdo (EV) as 3G and 1x as 2G.

    It's because it's not a GSM phone. iPhone has nothing to do with it :)
