Is this normal or some kind of scam by sprint?
I don't think it's Sprint's fault if you are using a phone that's on AT&T's systems.
Did you check to make sure that you have your 3G enabled?
I dont know if im mistaken, but doesnt the E for mobile network on your status bar mean edge? It doesnt show the 3g.
Never mind. According to another thread I just found Ev stands for sprints htc hero's 3G. Makes no sense but I hope its true.
Ahh, yes. That 'E' is actually an 'Ev' if you look more closely. Ev stands for "EVDO", which is about 5x faster than Edge.
Actually, EVDO is the only step - directly to 3G - , other than 1x. Sprint doesn't need any 1.5/2/2.5 steps for it's data like AT&T. (One of the only reasons I stick with the S is that I can count on their high-speed data.)
Oh okay, thanks for the help. Just wanted to make sure.
