    I assume you are on Sprint? 1XEV is the same as 3G. 1XEV is the CDMA technology but it is exactly the same as 3G, just labeled differently.

    For some reason, the OS on the Sprint 9650 shows 1XEV while the Verizon 9650 shows 3G. Verizon has slowly begun, at least from what I have seen, to change the aesthetic design of devices to display 3G as opposed to 1XEV.

    But rest assured, 1XEV is exactly the same as 3G

    It's all about the marketing. Right now 3G is "cool." Not any better or faster, just "cool." You can get themes that will turn your 1XEV symbol into a 3G symbol. Purely cosmetic.
