    Hey everyone,

    It seems my area is finally getting around to getting EVDO, as the last couple of days I have seen my '1x' icon turn to 'EV' occasionally in the phone app. My phone feels like it keeps trying to switch towers or something, so maybe they are working on this.

    Anyway, is there anything out there - an app or something - that can allow you to quickly see if you are in '1x' coverage or 'EV' coverage rregardless of what app you are in. AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK $the$ $only$ $way$ $to$ $know$ $for$ $sure$ $is$ $to$ $look$ $at$ $the$ $icon$ $in$ $the$ $default$ $phone$ $app$ ($which$ $I$ $rarely$ $ever$ $use$).

    Any ideas or pointers, folks?

    Well okay then.

    LOL

    Seriously, you'd think someone would come up with something like this, or that things like a Zlauncher theme would include it in the signal indicator... Oh well, just a thought.

    Have you updated your database by dialing *228 (then press 2 at the prompt)?

    There are programs that show the icons (on Sprint, it just changes the colors of the arrows when it changes from EVDO to 1X). Launcher X, 2day, Blazer, and others, but I"m not aware of one that would show the icons no matter what program you're in.

    I have not noticed the 1x or EVDO icon but my mobilespeedtest.com shows data speeds of 317 to 452 kbps. While my wife's 650 shows a data speed of 56 kbps or so. So my question is it still EVDO even though I do not have the EVDO icon showing on Blazer

    I guess I was thinking of the 700wx, I haven't seen an icon on the 700p!

    That only does it in the phone app, He means in every app.
