Thanks, this is my first BB and I am hooked.
I think i wrote a comment regarding about your question in this thread.
In any case, Sprint and Verizon have been working to upgrade area's to EVDO capable towers, so it's only a matter of time, that most of their network and coverage should support it.
Regardless, If your system does say 1xEV on it, you are getting EVDO and it is capable of it. You just need to be in a coverage area that is supporting evdo , and you will notice it by the "1XEV", otherwise, you'll notice you won't be in it when youre in "1X"
By the looks of it, you said you were getting the 1XEV, so you should be fine.
