    Outside of this I was also seeing a pop-up after reboots telling me that "A SIM card has been inserted. Do you want xxxx to automatically choose CDMA or GSM based on the best signal strength?" or something similar. I answered yes to the question but only after I got annoyed with it coming back all the time when I said no...
    Thanks again for all the help. Its nice to know that all you guys are here with the knowledge to basically fix just about anything.
    I keep mine set on CDMA, unless you travel outside of the contenential US.

    I would have been happy to show you how to send service books but glad you found. Because the Storm is a world phone in the US it will use CDMA however overseas it uses the SIM card to for GSM. A lot of people have posted you can save some battery life by choosing the CDMA option. You can change this manually by doing the following.

    Options - MObile Network - Click Network technology - change global to 1XEV. If you travel outside the US you will want to change it to Global. But for the states 1XEV is all you need.

    jlevy73,
    Thanks! On the topic of using GSM overseas. Has anyone (US) used a "pay as you go" SIM card rather than paying Verizon fairly high rates for international use?
    Thanks

    Thanks
    I travel a lot overseas and in areas where VZW does not cover. If you go onto their their website for international coverage just tell them you are traveling to a country they do not cover. They will then unlock your SIM card so that when you go buy a local SIM card and use that while traveling. Hope that helps.
