    Weird icon

    Advertisement



    Hi all,

    I have a new BB Curve 8310 from Vodafone.
    In the left top corner I have a weird icon I never saw before.
    It's a circle with a horizontal and a vertical line through it.

    I have attached a jpeg that looks like the icon I have.

    What is it?
    And how can I get rid of it?

    Thanks!

    Strange because this one is new and I did not install any software on it yet...

    Thanks for the fast reply though!

    Re: Weird icon

    I was thinking about the GPS thingy myself but how can I disable it?
    My 2 other colleagues have the same BB model (8310) and do not have the icon.
    We all are connected through Vodafone NL.

    Also when doing a full install of the BB OS through the Application Manager my password still remains. Even when I check the box to delete everything and reinstall.
    So I have the idea it does not completely removes everything.

    Thanks for all the replies!

    Not sure. But I believe its because you have the option of being locateable at any time via 911 emergency. If you see that symbol I believe you have it set to on. If you turn off the locator you shouldnt see it anymore. Turning off the locator wont disable GPS.
