    But over in Europe, the 9530, even tho CDMA in the states, will be GSM 3G. That's the magic of the chipset! That's why it has a Sim card. However I was under the impression that rev A of EVDO would handle voice and data simultaneously. Have to re read that info.

    have you been reading the thread?? that has already been clarified, now we are onto the fact that GSM "3G" is advertised as being able to simultaneously allow both voice and data to be sent and received while in reality since our "3G" is 1XEV and the CDMA network can't handle that, we really aren't able to use that feature.
    And your point? VZW never advertised the ability to do simultaneous voice & data. No existing VZW CDMA phone does simultaneous voice & data (and sms != data), and you're not loosing anything with the Storm. In fact, you're gaining the ability to do it with the Storm if you use a GSM-based network.

    It would be nice if VZW was HSPA, but that's not going to happen overnight. Frankly I like VZW's coverage better than AT&T's (and I've used VZW, AT&T, and Sprint phones).

    Do a mobile speed test (http://www.dslreports.com/mspeed) and see what you get.

    read the whole thread, its explained like 8 times. pretty much CDMA "g3" = 1xEV

    the "real g3" is on the GSM network and those say "g3"

    1xEV (CDMA) and g3 (GSM) are the same.






    btw, i tried that speed test and it said it was too fast / couldnt do it. So i used my info at orb.com to do it and i got 2.5mb a second... its effing fast. i guess its the browser? actually its been running faster ever since i went into mobile network and set it manually to 1xEV vs Global

    CDMA Curves and pearls are 3G. Which is why the statement of the BOld being the first 3G blackberry is completely false.
