Forcing 1x over EVDO

I'm wondering if the phone might get a little better battery life if it didn't have to switch from EVDO to 1x everytime I make/receive a call or send a text and then switch back to EVDO when I'm done. The only way I know to force my phone to 1x is to force it to roam. Is there another way? Am I crazy for thinking this might save a little battery? I've searched for an answer but having a hard time since the search engine won't let me look for "1x" due to the 3 letter thing.

Re: Forcing 1x over EVDO

Yeah, you should be able to select either EVDO or 1X or Hybrid. Let me see if I can find that.

Re: Forcing 1x over EVDO

Change
HKLM/software/OEM/phonesetting and change hidden mode operation page to 0

Then Start Menu-->Settings-->Personal-->Phone
Tap on the Services tab
Select Mode of Operation then tap Get Settings
Tap 1X only, then ok

I don't have "hidden mode operation" under OEM. Could this have something to do with me running MightyROM? Maybe I ought to post in there?

Re: Forcing 1x over EVDO

ahh I'm a dummy. The value was there and I changed it. Worked like a charm. Thanks my friend.

Now I just need to test my theory of better battery life.

Re: Forcing 1x over EVDO

It'd be nice if it ony went EVDO during browsing.

Let us know if its better.
IMHO I highly doubt it'lll be a noteworthy increase.

Yeah, that would be ideal. It's kind of a pain when I want to use the internet. But on the other hand it works great when I'm at home. In EVDO I only get 0-1 bars, while in 1x only I get 3.

If you do EVDO only expect to have a problem with SMS since it uses 1X. You probably wont receive any text unless you make or receive a phone call.
