Just like what psuwtb , it's more of persistence and seeing if you're area is covered for EVDO (remember the coverage maps is still growing , some areas are still 1xRTT) so the areas that don't have coverage wont' immediately swap over to EVDO , unless you enter an area that you know for sure has it.
When i did my PRL *2 update for the first time, the first attempt needed a couple of tries. the first attempted failed, when i called, the second succeeded. I called again to make sure, and another update downloaded, and then after that update and another "successful activation" screen, the arrows started moving, and the screen turned 1XEV all in upper. If you get this, test it out yourself. Ive had google, cnet, my isp page, all pages i normally go to, run a heck of alot faster. (especially google local, it's excellent with EV speeds! )
My advice to those that were as eager to me, make sure 1) you have the latest 4.1 update 2) have the sprint blackberry support number handy 3) make sure you have all PRL updates 4) once 1XEV certified, start rockimng on your fast blackberry. kudos for BB integrating future upgrade and scalability , i love my 7250! woohoo! crigey! lol
