    Just noticed that my preferred network was set on Global. Is this correct? I thought CDMA was my primary network in the US.

    EDIT: Ok, I guess Global is a default and/or kind of setting to use what has been working. I'm having some issues with receiving calls when it's asleep and thought this may be why.

    Network Mode Setting - HTC Droid Incredible 2 ADR6350
    From a home screen, select the applications tab (located in the lower left).
    Select Settings.
    Select Call.
    Select Preferred Network.
    Select one of the following.
    Global
    This setting attempts to connect to the last network technology used. If that technology is not available, the device will attempt to connect using the alternate technology. If the device is having difficulty placing phone calls, attempt to use the Global setting.
    CDMA
    Code Division Multiple Access network - This is the setting for use on the Verizon Wireless network.
    GSM / UMTS
    Global System for Mobile Communications / Universal Mobile Telecommunications Service - Typically used when traveling overseas.
    Select one of the following.
    GSM / UMTS Dual
    GSM only
    UMTS only

    So this is where that setting is. I've read about this setting but never could find it. It should he set to cdma not global as global apparently uses more battery

    Think so? It came set to global and my battery life is awesome the way it is. Maybe I'll try cdma mode for a charge cycle and see. Thanks.

    Ohh. Yeah that's what I've read anyways. If you have no issues on battery life I guess no reason to go changing things

    What's your preferred network we have sim-cards so do use CDMA or the gsm/umts. Witch is faster better battery life and so on.

    In the US, I don't think you have a choice, right? GSM is blocked.

    The GSM bands are locked in the US. For the Droid 2 Global/Droid Pro, TeamBlackHat had a hack that unlocked the lock. Originally $100, now free, but only worked on the very earliest version of the Froyo firmware. They want to do something like this for the Droid 3 but as far as I know it hasn't happened yet. If I am wrong, great!
