    I also have an altell handheld 8830 we and am facing similar problems on a similar network setup. I should be receiving 1XEV but all i get is 1X. I've had this problem since day one with this phone Data works fine but it just does not register.

    Im going to try installing telus's new os and see if that fixes anything.

    just noticed one thing... if you go to options...about.. it says "GPRS , CDMA" not "EDGE, CDMA" does this mean that on GSM,it will only work on GPRS ??

    Hypermaster is correct. its only works at GPRS since primary function is CDMA EV-DO. GSM only 'roaming' function
