    3g symbol on OS .428

    So I updated to .428 and love everything about it, finally got better signal, screen click is perfect. Data transfer is faster, etc but I have noticed the 3g symbol sometimes has the dots BB symbol and sometimes doesnt??? Anyone know why, is this two levels of 3g or something?


    Why buy a Blackberry if your not going to tinker with it???

    I think that is the interpretation of the older 1XEV /1xev format.

    When you have the 3G with the BB dots you have 1XEV and then the same goes for 3G with no dots you have 1xev.

    That's my guess.

    THis may sound silly, but with each new OS release, don't they usually include a PDF user manual in one of the folders once it installs on your PC? Maybe there is a manual in your OS folder that will explain the symbols... Just my two cents worth...

    Its actually 3G when connected to rim servers and 3g when not. I am not sure what you guys are meanin by the dots? Are you talking about your signal meter?

    I am a bit confused, are you referring to the difference between 1XEV and 3G?

    There is no difference between 1XEV and 3G
    They mean the same thing just different symbols.

    finally loaded 428/328 and NO 3G logo but did find out that key ghosting is there but is not listed as "Allow pop up keys" like before but its listed as "Show Key Indicator"..Just go into Options>Screen/Keyboard>Show Key Indicator> Always, on touch and hold or Never are the choices. If you place finger on a pair of keys "ty for ex", it pops up ty then if you keep ya finger on it, it displays "y"...

    It never goes to 3g, only 3G with the BB symbol next to it. So when you see

    3G (insert BB symbol with the dots) - you have 3G/1XEV

    3G (no BB symbol with the dots ) - I assume you have 1xev

    I would have to disagee. I have seen 1X on my phone and I've also seen 3G without dots too. Not sure the difference is but I'm almost always showing 3G with dots.

    I get 1X all the time, in fact I have 1X right now but the 3G with no dots usually mean you have nothing. At least when I have 3G with no dots it's only when I turn on my radio and it goes through connecting to the Verizon network. 1X is different than 1xev.
