    Has anyone here ever seen 3G on your storm?

    I am a verizon user and I've been all over the country, just got back from LA and never once in 4 months have I seen 3G on my display. Verizon tells me that 1XEV is 3G but Im no dope BB manual lists 1XEV and 3G two separate levels of service. Has any Verizon users seen 3G? Funny thing is Verizon also tells me that nobody complains about the Storm "Everyone absolutely loves it" hahahahahaha!!!!

    1XEV is the equivalent of 3G for CDMA phones which both VZW and Sprint use here in the US.

    HSPA is the equivalent of 3G for GSM phones like AT&T and T-Mobile.

    To answer your question, no it's not possible to see "3G" on the phone. Even if you were to unlock your Storm and use with a GSM provider the best you would get is EDGE

    Are you sure about no 3G image? I remember another post on a different forum of a 9530 being used in Europe and the poster said they saw 3G?

    someone made a workaround to get the "3G" to show on the screen to freakout his friends. It was still 1XEV but done as a joke.

    I'll see if I can find the info on that
