1x Designation on Verizon Phones

Been awhile since I have looked at new Verizon phones. I have the older Moto
V60(one of the originals). On this phone it is basically either a D or an
A(and yes even No Service). When I was in the Verizon store I noticed all of
their phones had a 1x designation. Is this some sort of new signal? Is this
better coverage, equal coverage or what? The wife uses the Verizon since I
don't have any coverage in my office at work and limited at best at home.
Just wondering if I should take a look when I shop for my new phone and
service.

Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks.

The 1x mainly identifies the presence or absence of a 1xrtt
signal/system/tower. 1x always shows when on a verizon native tower, may or
may not when on extended service, and probably not on roam (it can, but not
usual and expensive to use if available).

1x usually makes no difference to voice, but it can speed data transfer up
immensely. (even if you don't use data, it can also speed up GIN stuff)

It doubles ar a USB modem at up to 144Kbps. It will also get and send
pictures and ringtones at that speed.

The "1x" indicates the ability to send/receive relatively high-speed data
(while connected to a laptop computer). It has nothing to do with voice
capabilities.

On the voice side, 1x:

1) Almost doubles the voice call capacity on a given CDMA carrier.

2) Significantly increases the standby time of the phone.

No "capability" differences, but relevant on the voice side nonetheless.

On the data side, 1x also lets the on-phone applications (Get It Now)
download and access the Internet faster.
