    Signal 1X ??? What does that mean?

    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 Verizonicon 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)?

    P.S. Phone is Motorola T730

    Your phone is going to blow up Oh my nice knowing you I thought they fixed this problem





























    No no worries that is the signal Verizonicon uses dont worry about it. All the new phones display the 1x.

    This is straight from this site of what 1x is
    CDMA2000 1X (Also 1xRTT) A 3G wireless communications standard evolved from CDMA technology. It has double the voice traffic capacity of CDMA and provides peak data rates of 153 kbps.
    If you have any other question you can go here. I go there alot when I have questions.

    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.
    The innocent shall suffer. Big time.
