    Ok maybe i just haven't read up enough on Verizon and there 3G capabilities but my storm supports 3g yet when i activate it, it does not work. Now i thought Verizon was a 3g network or is the 1XEV there form of 3G, or am i just not in the coverage area?

    1XEV is Verizons 3G

    if you look on the back of your storm just below the battery cover it says 3G

    1Xev is 3G voice but not data

    Madmilk,
    If you want to see the "3G" sign and the BB logo on your Storm, fly to Italy. I was just there for a vacation and that is how the signal is identified by Vodaphone. When we are on 3G, our phones show 1XEV.

    Rich

    PS: FWIW, I noticed no difference in performance while in Italy when I had a "3G" signal. Same as home. It looked cooler on the phone, but that was about it.

    regardless of what phone someone owns, he has a point jesus tap dancing christ a simple search would have answered this dudes question without making the 635454615462541654354232 thread about 3g

    1EV is VZW's 3g, so if that is what you are seeing then you are on the 3g

    Your probably out of a 3G coverage area. Check the Rogers coverage map and if your supposed to have coverage in your area but still aren't getting 3G then start a new thread about your problem.

    1X is basically the CDMA equivelant of the GSM EDGE. Its a slower, older technology that usually only shows up in rural areas. I think VZW calls it National Access or Nationwide Access. But its basically using your phone at slightly faster than dial up speeds, up to 144 KBPS.

    Thanks! I am in a fairly rural area, but my coverage drops to the 1X after I d/c a tether. 1XEV comes back 3 bars + after I d/c all connections and then connect again.

    I disagree .....cdma is Verizon s version of 3G ...when you are overseas it runs on GSM.....
    As far as speeds I've. Been getting 450 to 500 kbps which is almost 5 maps whis is also the speed of
    My cable connection at home.

    They're both network technology families...

    And you need a faster cable connection, my man.

    If your Storm is topping around 500kbps, that's only .5mbps, not 5mbps...

    If your Storm is pulling 5 megs... That's one of those holy sh*t moments.

    I might be wrong, but I was under the impression that the 9500 did not support North American 3G bands, but only European 3G. Edge is as good as it gets on Rogers with the Storm currently.

    Love the kid comments, especially when I probably make more money than both your parents... combined.

    Keep em coming, though. Its a pretty accepted fact that 8330 > Storm.

    But I'd be mad too if I wasted money on that crap.

    Yeah, if you own a curve.

    Only a curve owner or a pessimistic Storm owner would say such nonsense.

    and yes:
    3G (3rd Generation) is the same as EV-DO (Evolution Data Optimization)... doesn't matter what the phone displays... either way will carry the same speeds
