In options-mobile network, it says available networks are verizon wireless H. It used to say 1xEV. It still shows connected to 1xEV by the signal meter and data speeds are just fine. Anyone know why it says H now? Been that way for over a week.

My Verizon 8830 still shows 1XEV. I also have the selections of GSM and Global. I wonder if this is just an 8330 thing?

Don't know. I could have sworn it used to show 1XEV on my curve.

on my pearl it says 1XEV, but in my called list next to the name it will either show a "H" or a "W"...what does a "H" or a "W" mean?

If it says H then you are on HSDPA on a non-CDMA network.
It you are on an 8330 CDMA, then it means Home only and you cannot roam.
