    My wife's phone is almost 2 years old and was having issues - loss of signal, poor reception, etc. She took it to the local Verizon store. She was told it needed to be updated which took about 30 minutes.

    It works fine now, but the 1X now appears next to the signal strength indicator. It was not there before. What is this? Should I be concerned (care)? :confused:

    P.S. Phone is Motorola T730

    Simple answer:

    1X= CDMA 1XRTT (digital) = Best
    "D"= = Digital = Good
    "A"= Analog = expect static and call dropping, but hey, at least it's a signal

    As long as it doesn't say "No Signal", you're ok.
