    I am sitting in the middle of nowhere and I am still sitting on 3G coverage.

    Don't believe me look up Trenary MI and I still have awesome coverage.

    Man I love this phone.

    I hear ya. I'm up in Port Austin Michigan with 4 bars of 3G. Getting about 700kbs with tetherberry. This is awesome compared to using the iphone with AT&T and only getting 1 bar of edge service.

    So you are saying "VZW has more bars every where".

    Seems we all know that except the other guys who are trying to tell us another story.

    Up until about three months ago I got maybe two bars and always 1x in my town of Round Hill VA. Then out of nowhere I'm at five bars and 1XEV. Come to find out they had activated a new tower in town. Verizon FTW.

    Im so jealous. I live in a dead spot. There are towers all around but because of the location of our house we dont get crap for coverage from any carrier, but go about 500 feet up the hill and shazam full 5 bars 3G. Oh well, WIFI has been awesome though.

    I agree. That's why I switched. I had 2 occassions in the last 6 months that made me take a look at switching from Tmobile. My son was @ Rutgers for football camp and I had no contack with him for 3 days - 0 covergage in the dorm. He said he would hang out of the dorm window and still clould not make a call. A month ago a group of us were at someone's house. All except 3 people - 10 of us total, had Tmo. We didn't have SOS coverage. Ridiculous. I had to bounce. My other friends drove cross country last summer, the only family with coverage was the VZ family, everyone admitted it. With my S2, I almost always have 3g coverage. If not 3g then the 1xev coverge.

    Nope means you do not have data. Redo th register now. If this does not resolve it try this.


    ##000000 and go down to sip password. enter vzw and then hit menu and save. THe device will reset.

    Yeah but your only going to get 1XEV if you are in a 3G area. 1xev mean no data, a reset isn't going to help him if the signal isn't there.

    1xev means no connection to RIm's servers. You still have data coverage
