    1X is 1xRTT gives the wireless provider more calling capcity than IS-95A (1st Generation CDMA). This is for dowloading things like Get It Now and internet use. You can go up to 144Kbps (little faster than Dailup) 99% of VZW network is 1XRTT ready.

    EV is EV-DO at this time it is for data only (wireless calls go back to 1XRTT). This is for highspeed internet and VCast. You can dowload sometimes at speeds over 1Mbps. EV-DO is right now in most metros and is hardly in any rural areas at this time. By the end of the year Verizon will be pushing EV-DO into more rural areas.

    Hope this helps out

    Not knowing your plan I can give you a general answer.

    With the America's Choice I plan if your phone says extended network you are roaming on an another carrier's network but you are not paying any charges. Some of Verizon's features such as voice mail may or may not be available.

    If you are roaming you may see a solid triangle on your screen. There is a $.69/min charge for roaming. A blinking triangle on your screen would indicate no extra roaming fees.

    If you are on the ACII plan there is no paid roaming period.

    As for analog, unless you are out in the boondocks somewhere it is probably not necessary to have.

    Agreed...Analog roaming is becoming a thing of the past...Verizon has done a decent job at expanding their digital network (including extended service). Unless you have a specific problem in your area with achieving digital service, then stick to an all digital phone.

    Hope this helps.
