    I believe the upcoming OS will "fix" this. It is only a cosmetical change to not confuse new users.

    Just install the leaked 5.0 and you will. I agree though its nicer to see the 3G icon instead of 1XEV.

    Is there a difference? Isn't "3G" the exact same thing as "1X-EV"? I know that there is a difference between Rev 0 and Rev A, but I'm pretty sure that spelling 3G "1X-EV" is the same as spelling John "Juan"?

    Because CDMA users are missing out on all the GSM fun!

    im talking about instead of it saying 1XEV it can say 3g on it with a little tiny BB logo..... i think the bold 9700 has it too

    Yes 1xEV is 3g. It's really irrelevant and changes nothing. Just a cosmetic choice by RIM for the os 5 and up.

    The OS update will "fix" this purely cosmetic issue. They will also be releasing another update to the 5.0 for the 9530 so it will show 3G instead of the 1XEV
