    Forcing 1x mode???

    I've searched and searched and maybe I'm just blind. BUT, have we found a way to force the phone into 1x mode during data transmission rather than having it pop up to evdo when ev is available?

    This has come up before, and I gotta ask why, as in the past, the reasoning behind it has been rather interesting?

    it seems as though google maps will be able to use location status when in 1x mode...I was in my walking around when I heard that rumor and was looking for a spot that would drop the reception to 1x. When I found a spot..google maps did start doing something, but then it jumped back to evdo and did not work!!!!

    The rationale I've heard is for people who live an area without EVDO, forcing the phone to 1X will actually help the battery as it prevents the phone for hunting for the EVDO connection.

    unfortunately, I move tomorrow afternoon, so I will never be seeing that church again..alas, Ill have to find some deep dark basement to experiment in..I am going to be living in a dorm, so that should do the trick..i should have an answer sometime this weekend...even still, we would have to find a way to force the phone into 1x only.

    So is that a no on the force to 1x question? I remember there was a rom that let you do this on the 6700. I wonder if it will help my signal at work since I have no EV bars. My battery drains all day at work hustling for a EV signal. If I tilt my head to the left and hold my foot in the air, I can get a half ah bar.
