What you will be doing is turning off EV-DO. EVDO is for "web use/vcast" and etc... Why do you need it, when you don't use that stuff? I'd rather get 2 more days of battery life, instead of EVDO being turned on, and not used at all, just waste battery life there.So, here's how you do it: THIS IS FOR THE LG CHOCOLATE VX8550 (2.0/New chocolate-2nd generation)When you are at the home screen,:
TYPE:##77647268550 then press SEND(green calling key)
It will ask you for a service code - Type: 000000 (6 zero's)
then click on NETWORK SELECT
then click on MODE PREFERENCE
then click on 1X ONLY
(thats it, you can now exit...) you may have to reboot your phone, MAYBE, maybe not Anyways, you'll notice that on the upper bar, EV is not there, anymore only 1X. Well thats good.
