    The 1XEV is 3G on Verizon the D and 1X is just like a plain digital signal.
    With that you can use the phone and send text messages. You might be able to get email or get on the web but it will be very slow.

    The signal strength and quality across carriers varies wildly in relation to your exact location.

    philadelphia, pa, usa here and i switched from tmobile to verizon and i'm so much happier with coverage. i get coverage in areas now that tmobile wasnt giving me, it's awesome. signal strength is usually 4-5 bars all the time.

    I'm in the South Jersey suburbs and signal strength on AT&T and VZW are equally good. I've not had any issues with either one except the random network outage. Coverage appears to be the same for both and where signal strength is lacking, it does so for both. Head too far east on US30 and you'd see what I mean.

    Verizon has 3G in much of rural Indiana. The smaller cities, Marion, Kokomo, Warsaw, all are covered, and the Interstates have 3G. This is relatively new, with coverage outside the big cities coming in the last 3 years and continuing to expand. AT&T is mostly in the big (relatively) cities: Indianapolis, South Bend, etc.
