It still depends on how your EVDO coverage is. If you're in an area that's on the edge of 1X and EVDO coverage, the device still will go for (and stay on) 1X most of the time. A co-worker has decided he'll live with 1X at home, and enjoy EVDO everywhere else.
This could also be a Verizon network issue, but this has been happening for several months and VZ just says things will stay that way until the network around here is 100% EVDO.
