In an effort to try to get a stable signal on my 9650 running OS 188.8.131.525 in New Jersey, I am trying the different settings. Under Manage Connections > Mobile Network Options > Network Technology, there are thee options: GSM/UMTS (which is not applicable since I'm on VZW), 1XEV, & Global. Seems that the logical option would be 1XEV, right? But signal bounce occurs. So I switch and try Global, bounce still occurs and I think battery drains quicker.
