EV does not drop calls as it is not used for calls. EV is ONLY a broadband network .. In other words, it does not transmit voice ... Only data ;)

If your dropping calls then try turning the phone off ..then back on then dial *228 then option 1 and see how it does then.

If your calling other cell phones and it's dropping calls then it's 50/50 as to who's at fault there.

My ZTE savvy z750c lost service one day and it never came back. it switches back and forth from 1x to searching for service, how do I fix this


THEIR ARE BASICALLY TWO TYPES OF CARRIERS ON CELL TOWER CARRIER A OR CARRIER B. EITHER ONE OF THEM OR BOTH COULD BE TRANSMITTING ZTE SERVICE.. SUGGEST CALLING YOUR CELL PHONE SERVICE PROVIDER AND SEE IF THEY CAN MAKE ADJUSTMENTS ON YOUR PHONE. NORMALLY #611 AND HIT SEND WILL DO.
IF YOU WANT TO TEMPORARY GET A STRONGER SIGNAL US A CHEAP PAIR OF EAR BUDS OR HEAD SET. EAR BUDS ARE AROUND A DOLLAR AT MOST DOLLAR STORES.

SEVERAL MORE TRICKS FOUND JUST BY GOOGLE IT.GOOD LUCK.

Web pages down loadingway to slow. Sometimes I have to double click on a page to get the hole page to download


Try restarting the pre by holding down the power button until a window pops up and selecting restart. If this doesn't help, check the top right corner of the phone, where your signal reception is shown. If the box next to is says EV, you should be connected to the right data signal. If it says 1x or R, you are either in an area where data has low or no reception, or your phone is having trouble locking onto the correct data network. If is says EV, then I would say that it is just the phone. To be honest, the pre has never been the snappiest or the most responsive of phones, and I often have to double tap on mine.

Where can I get a description of what the lg icons are other than what is on the phone? Eg.What does ring and speaker mean? What does one beep and one beep &speaker mean? Roaming icon means what?...


Depends on what model it is BUT generally....

E911 is emergency calls only, meaning no service.
Ring and speaker is audible only
Beep and speaker is vibe and sound
roaming means you are on another carrier's network, other charges may apply depending on your plan.
1X is comparable to dial-up speed. If your in high speed area, you will see EV or 3G
Location is your GPS function on/off

My phone will not send out text messages on my palm pre . Is it because it say 1x ?


You cannot send text messages on a 1x connection. Since you only have a 1x connection it means that your signal strength is quite weak and you are not getting a EVDO (aka 3G) signal.
This is not a problem with your phone but rather a problem with your cellular service provider. I would recommend contacting your service provider and telling them about your problem. They will find a way to boost the signal so you can have an EVDO connection and send text messages.

1x is in smaller case, done every troubleshooting but unable to get the solution.



I'll start with the first step (just in case you have not tried this and for others not as advanced as you) because you may need the information for BB Handheld Tech Support.
STEP 1.
There is a Device Self Test Diagnostic Application that will test your BB including your RF signal status. Go to OPTIONS, (the wrench).
STEP 2.
On this screen select STATUS.
STEP 3.

Type the word TEST. (you won't see it but it will give you a prompt when ready to prpceed. (

STEP 4.

It will prompt you to select START from the MENU.
This will begin the diagnostic selection process.

Scroll down to RF COMPONENTS; click on the checkbox; scroll down and click on RUN; then click on the telephone number.
The menu will pop up, scroll down to CALL. You should get a recording which is fine. This process is just testing your signal strength which is represented by the 1X or in your case 1x. The signal strength should be maintained throughout the call process. In your case I think it would fail the test. It will prompt you for a PASS or FAIL response. If the call does not go through or it does not maintain a strong signal, that is your problem. Click fail and

STEP 5.

Call your mobile/cellular service provider. The technician for Blackberry Handheld dept. will need to run their diagnostics from their side of the galaxy. They will work their magic and your symbol will change to 1X and you'll be good to go.


PS Note down any error messages you receive so you can accurately tell the technician when he asks. It can help the Tech speed things up while troubleshooting.

My blackberry curve has a 1x but full bars and wont let me txt call or anything how can i fix this


the 1x refers to your data signal strength. It must say 1XEV to have full coverage. Full coverage allows you to email, txt, etc. It might be the area you are in but if travel around and no changes, check you connections. "Manage Connections", the icon is an antenna, make sure your network check box is checked. if so, scroll down to "mobile network options" and make sure your "data services are on". If it is on, power down the phone, and remove the battery for minimum 2 minutes, then put battery back in and turn on. if you data is still only 1x contact your service provider.

Signal


Dial *228 option 1 and try again. If that doesn't work then you have to call your wireless carrier and have a data feature refresh done to your line.
