Before Christmas I rang Telecom to get roaming set-up on my Okta Touch.  Afterwards I noticed that the data indicator had changed from the usual EV to 1X.  I thought this had something to do with roaming.

Having returned home I rang Telecom and asked if they could put it back.  They say there is nothing they can do.  They say I am getting EVDO speeds, and all the network settings are correct.

Apparently the roaming download does not effect things like speed, only a list of roaming destinations.

Has anyone had a similar experience?  Any ideas on why the phone settings may have changed?
