    EVDO is 3G, as long as you are in an 1XEV area you will get the CDMA 3G. It does not support the North American GSM 3G frequencies (any of them)

    the XEV are not capitalized? Try to go to options > advanced options > host routing table > menu > register now and see if you get them 1XEV

    You have to be EXACTLY clear and accurate when you report things.
    "1xev" is NOT the same as "1XEV" (capitalized)

    How about you be more specific when responding to people... and criticizing them.

    1xev means EVDO

    1XEV means EVDO Rev-A

    1xev means EVDO

    What? Caps does not refer to Rev 0 or Rev A. At least you should be correct when criticizing someone for criticizing someone.

    1XEV means you're on EVDO and have full BB data service
    1xev (lower case) means you're on EVDO but are not connected to BB data service. Nothing to do with rev 0 vs A

    1X is the verizon 1XRTT network, basically their equivalent of a 2G data network. 1XEV is EVDO their 3G network. Caps mean you have a connection to RIMs servers, no caps = no connection to RIM.

    In case anyone's interested, when I was flying through Japan and had my SIM card activated, I was on the GSM network and I got the 3G symbol, which I think looks pretty cool, much more "stylish" than 1XEV, but I guess they're trying to be accurate!

    That is untrue. I had a samsung Alias and it has 1XEV. That my friend means it has nothing to do with RIM.

    1XEV (caps)=3G (iv heard it is considered 3.5 but we will keep it simple)
    1Xev = similar to 2G

    No no no, sith is correct.

    1XEV/1xev means you're on EVDO, but caps/no-caps refers to connection to RIM while on EVDO on BlackBerries. We're not talking about non-BB like the Alias.

    And 1X does mean 1XRTT, which is VZW's non-3G data service.

    From what I understood 1xev (lowercase) is much like when you see 'edge' instead of 'EDGE' on a GSM phone.

    It means you are connected, but data is not working.

    Guys, this is the right answer. Don't believe me? Go to Services Status (under Manage Connections) during a BIS outage and you will see that Blackberry Internet Service will have "Connection: not connected" underneath it.
