Anyone know if this is an issue, everytime i send a text message, my Samsung Moment drops to 1x from EVDO. I purchased this device yesterday and it had CL14 on it and I have the latest PRL. I just want know if this is normal, because when it drops to 1x sometimes it can take awhile to switch back to EVDO, and sometimes i need to switch to airplane mode and then back again, then the signal strength will show EDVO again. Also I can browse the internet on EDVO with no problems at all.

This is not. It should automatically switch back on it's own, unless you are in a weak EVDO coverage spot.

Thanks for the reply...I never noticed that drop on my Pre when i had it. Sometimes i just think it is the Signal strength indicator because even when i browse at 1x it sure feels just as fast...thanks again

There is an app for speedtest. It works well, too. I have looked at the difference between 3G and my Wi-Fi many times. Search for it on the market. It is free.

Looks like this is just something we are to deal with in the undated phones. (Never had this issue in the previous verison) What?s worse is when it will just get stuck with the upload arrow bright but no download arrow and you have to shut down your phone to fix it.

Mine will do it once every 3 days or 3 times a day. I haven?t found out yet what the trigger is. So if anyone knows please enlighten me.

i think the radio is switching but not the icon, i did a test in EV and when it got stuck in 1x and the tests were almost identical. First was 856kb down, then 780kb down, then 870kb down and the last 2 were in the "1x" mode
