    As long as the 1XEV symbol is in CAPS, you are in a 3G area. That's how verizon does it.

    Chill dude - was there even a reason for you to post? He got the answer, and that's it. No need to flame or anything....its a forum - questions are asked, people answer them.

    When the same question gets asked literally every 16-24 hours, its somewhat warranted. There is a search function for a reason. If nobody used it or bothered to look for any of the answers to their questions, imagine how cluttered these forums would be? If you ask me, There should be a FAQ stickied to the top of the forums full of all the basic questions people ask.

    ex:
    why doesnt my phone say 3g?
    what does 1xev mean?
    whats a beta? how is it different than an official release?
    when is the official release coming out?
    how do i get wi-fi working?

    It'd be really nice to give new users one place to go to learn pretty much all the basics needed to be an educated/informed crackberry user.

    n00bs should get mentors. that solves all problems. you are assigned a mentor, you BBM and get permission for threads or posts, and if the mentor doesn't sign off then you don't get to do it. like a parent permission slip for a field trip! "billy, there is no signature saftey pinned to your shirt so you can't go to the farm with the other boys and girls today."

    When there was another new thread with an almost identical title posted at the top of the list, yes, there is a reason for me to post this. Reading is FUNdamental!

    I agree it is a little bit annoying when you see the same question posted 1,000 times a week... people need to read, search and use a little common sense before posting a new thread. i am not calling out the op specifically just a general comment.

    Now that's right there is funny.....

    Remember, we were all newbies at one time and had no clue about using "Search".

    Search shouldn't even be an issue when there was a nearly identical thread title on the front page when this was posted. Cleaning your glasses or changing your contacts would be more appropriate.

    Ooh! How about different levels of membership? To pass to the next level you must complete the quiz. That way everyone in the forum are of the same basic ability and above. Flying with the eagles rather than trotting with the turkeys. No offense to the OP, I just like to throw into a thread every now and then.

    uuummm 1XEV is NOT just 3G. Just to clarify

    1X = voice and slowwww data
    EV = EVDO which is any form of verizon 3g

    it can and will just show 1X THAT means no 3g. lower case shows not all services available.

    I officially nominate myself as mentor #1
    (*first*?)
    Qualifications:
    blackberry certified by RIM, worked for VZW for over 2 years doing customer service/tech support, facilitating data labs, etc. if I don't know the answer, I can usually find it from the blackberry knowledge base site fairly quickly (you gotta know how to finesse that puppy) or can refer you to a friend who is in the know. I will update my signature indicating my voluntary mentor status, please PM for PIN.

    i don't care about who's what's is bigger than who's. i just wanna help keep the forums productive. i come here to find info too, and n00bs need to know their role, jabroni!

    So inform us on productive threads not sit here and compare who knows what. Claiming your #1 mentor.

    I have the same qualifications as you plus. But I'm not claiming anything. There are plenty of n00b questions needing your super serial mentoring.

    It shouldnt be a BB mentor it should be a forum mentor. This happens like 99% of the time in other forums as well.

    It should be like "How to use Search to solve your problem" mentor...my 6 cents

    all im saying is i am willing to take the time out of my day to help anyone who wants the help. that is all. im not claiming to be the uber-RIM guru. i've had experience on pretty much every 3G blackberry, so i've seen most issues. you may be more experienced than me. good to know if i dont have the answer, and can't find it in knowledge base i can refer users to you for info.

    bottom line is less flaming/bickering, more productive knowledge sharing. the storm release has flooded these forums with countless new to blackberry users who are lost in the darkness. how about us seasoned users be their light, eh?

    Mentor? I thought people were supposed to act like human beings and do a little reading before asking stupid repetitive questions. This same thread was literally posted this morning. After having to wade through all the garbage I need an anger management mentor. GO TO THE NOOB FORUMS

    Why don't they change it to 3G? Between the signal meter, and the 3G indicator, you would have all pertinent information, and you are saving two characters of space on a cramped screen.
