Default Re: Network status shows '1x' and sometimes 'D'

Set the network as follows:

Network Selection Mode: Automatic

Network Mode: Global

In GSM mode you should also be able to select a specific carrier (it's somewhere there in the same window), there will be a list of carriers as preset on your SIM card.

If you are in GSM-only area don't select CDMA. It obviously won't work.

Below are RIM Connection Identifiers:

[conn: connection, ntw: network, vce: voice]

- Yoff - connection turned off
- Ysos - emergency calls only
- Yx - no coverage

- 1x - 1xRTT (carrier's ntw, no BIS/BES)
- 1xEV - EVDO (carrier's ntw, no BIS/BES)
- 1xev - EVDO (data turned off by the user)
- 1X - 1xRTT (carrier's ntw + BIS/BES)
- 1XEV - EVDO (carrier's ntw + BIS/BES)
- roam icon: blue (vce+data), red (no data)

- gprs, edge, 3g - carrier's ntw, no BIS/BES
- GPRS, EDGE, 3G - carrier's ntw + BIS/BES

1XEV: high speed data conn
1X, GPRS: low speed data conn
1x, GSM, D: no data connection
