    I just enabled the engineering screen on my old Blackberry Curve 8330, and when I go into Radio Engineering Screens>CDMA Radio Engineering Screens>Test Configuration Screen, it shows "1x Throttling is Enabled, DIP = 0". Does anyone know what this means? This is just out of curiosity because I haven't used the phone in years and it's been inactive for quite a while.

    Here is the definition of throttling, throttle, etc:

    (My idea of a joke, a bad joke)

    throttling

    Also found in: Thesaurus, Legal, Idioms, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.
    Related to throttling: throttling valve, CPU throttling
    throt·tle (thrŏt′l)
    n.
    1. A valve that regulates the flow of a fluid, such as the valve in an internal-combustion engine that controls the amount of air-fuel mixture entering the cylinders.
    2. A lever or pedal controlling such a valve.
    tr.v. throt·tled, throt·tling, throt·tles
    1.
    a. To regulate the flow of (fuel) in an engine.
    b. To regulate the speed of (an engine) with a throttle.
    2. To suppress: tried to throttle the press.
    3. To strangle (a person); choke.
    [Short for throttle valve, from throttle, to strangle, choke, from Middle English throtelen, probably from throte, throat; see throat.]

    throt′tler n.

    In this case, they're throttling data speed. 1x is slower than say 2x (just an example, not factual) and somehow your device has had it's 1x throttling enabled in some way.

    That makes sense. Do you think anything would happen if I disabled throttling? Also, I’m not sure if this is correct, but is it enabled because the phone is inactive?

    Honestly, I thought that about it maybe being throttled for not being active.

    I would play around with the setting, remembering exactly how to go turn it back if something goes awry. If it's a telephone you use regularly, I would be careful.

    Maybe put your SIM in and test it first.
