    i need urgent help about droid

    hey guys I am on page plus unlimited talk n text i was searching for infromation how to disable verizon data (i only have 20mb)

    so i found this

    Code:
    • Go to the Phone app and dial *#*#INFO#*#*
    • Press Phone infomation
    • Scroll down untill you see "Set preferred network type:"
    • Press "CMDA auto (PRL)" and a list should pop up
    • Select "CDMA only" in the list
    • Return to the Home screen by pressing the Home button


    now my droid shows "1x" instead of 3g I heard that CDMA is free internet but its really really slow. Is the 1X icon really the free internet that is really slow from verizon? thanks!

    I am under the impression that you have to have the soon-to-be-extinct unlimited data plan when you have a Droid.

    Hey thanks for quick reply well from what I've been reading its CDN or i think the whole name is CDMA.

    Speed 40-60kps, burst 144 kps

    Anyway if this is not it then I just disabled background data what else I can do so that the droid wont be using internet unless I am in wi-fi area? I tried all those widgets but the only work with GSM phones. Thank you

    what do you mean by lite settings is free ?

    EDIT: I figured it out!

    1. In dialer
    *#*#INFO#*#*
    2. Go to phone information
    then press menu button
    3. Click on more
    4. Disable Data On Boot

    for any pageplus users this is a must have!
