    ev and 1x switch between two services verizon has. EV is more faster but if you in a building it may not be able to get it. So it goes to 1x which is considered roaming. but your roam getting roaming charges.

    From my understanding and browsing around:
    EvDo stands for "Evolution, Data Only" or "Evolution, Data Optimized”, basically it is high speed data access. The 1X is for dial up speeds and will pick up if you cannot find a EvDo network.

    The EV stands for EVDO (EVolution Data Optimized) and gives you 2.4mb/s and the 1X is actualy (1XRTT) 163k/s a bit faster than dialup.

    Depending on the location the EV wont be available so you will see 1X. If you get into an old network you mite see the 1x(lowercase x) instead of the 1X. The 1x is the old numeric network one of the first digital.
