    Re: What does 1x mean on the Droid Razr


      I have a new Motorola Razzr it drops 1x and 3G, tech support can't seem to tell me why have this problem since got the phone 3 weeks ago, I can see the tower and my phone drops all connection, it works bout 50% of the time. Can;t get on internet.. Any help would be appreciated...

          being close to the tower isn't always a good thing.


          the signal is shaped much like an umbrella, close to the tower, you're under it & little if no signal. it's actually better to be further away.


          do the bars show more signal strength as you pull away from that tower?

            I have seen on my Razr Maxx a Few times the 1X as Well it Just means your in a Rual Area an you are Only Getting 2G=1X. Were i Live we only get 3G for Now. While it seems every body around us has the 4G. One thing to Note Do change the CDMA/LTE to Just CDMA..it can cause big time issues with phone if you change it. I have an kept mine since i Bought it on CDMA/LTE..b33

              Its not just a Razr thing, I have experienced this issue also from time to time, if I had to guess they are working on or having issues with the towers in your area... Have you called CS to verify their isnt a network issues,

                Wildman i have only Seen the  1X on Two Occasions one was out by Great Bent Ks an another was when was over in a Rual part of Sedgwick County. Other than that it's been on 3 or when in the Area 4G

                  B33, thanks for all your information that you post. I live and work in a 4g area, and I have had the maxx for almost 3 weeks.

                  With regard to your comment, is it safe then to change from lte to wifi every night when I come home since you said that it's not good to switch from lte to CDMA ? So , what you are saying that it is better for the phone to do the switch by itself, rather than switch maually from lte to CDMA? Thanks for your your help. .....Freddie.

                    Yes it's a Natural switch From the Network to the Wi-Fi. An as for the info on the the CDMA/LTE switch.  The first Day i Got my Maxx ! Before i Done anything with it. I called an Talked to Tier 2 Tech an asked Him Many Questions an the First thing that he Told Me Was to leave that Switch as is. He told me as we talked further on He said in our Training classes with Moto Techs the subject of leaving the cdma/lte as is was brought up many Times. And he also told me he owned a Maxx as Well And before i new it We had talked for 2 Hours But he Still stayed on the Phone an went threw the Programming with Me. I call that dedication an i wished there would've been more Like Him..
