    Hi, I've searched but could not find a solid rule to go by.

    How do you tell what phone is a "Power Vision" phone or a "Vision" phone?

    Also, how do you tell if I have a "Power Vision" SERO or "Vision" SERO?

    Thank you all.

    Which phone do you want to know about? Most new phones are Power Vision now with a few exceptions like the LG Rumor, Sanyo Katana, and Samsung M300.

    Samsung A900, Motorola Q...

    I do like to learn how to tell them apart. Do I look for EVDO for each phone?

    Both of those are Power Vision phones. They are both EV-DO capable.

    The only difference is that regular vision phones use the older internet system which doesn't have as fast of speed.

    So technologically speaking then both Vision and Power Vision phone both have EVDO capability? I thought vision meant you only have 1XRTT not EVDO.

    I am still lost on whats going on here :confused:

    No. Vision phones do not have EV-DO capability. Only Power Vision phones have EV-DO.

    This is what I wanted to know.

    Vision phones = Packet data 1xRTT only
    Power Vision phones = Packet data 1xRTT and EVDO

    Thank you.
