    that is just your phone trying to connect to the network, you can try turning off data in---options-network

    not sure it that is possible. you might actually have to edit the OS and then install it on your handheld. there are things that just can't be done on the phone.

    I have this on my BB and it occurs when you do an action, whether it be a call, sending mail etc....I thought it was normal and have always had it on all my BB...

    @ togapiggy - btw, not sure you avatar necessarily depicts your BB experience....

    The arrows indicate that data is being uploaded or downloaded.

    While on a phone call, both are occurring, therefore both arrows.

    They will also flash occasionally while polling the network and sending / receiving SMS.

    And the size of the arrows will depict whether or not the attempt connected with the tower or not, you may see a very small one or a series of them before you get the Fat ones.

    And if you did...you really wouldn't know if you were able to send/receive data until items actually flow into your device (i.e. E-mails, Pinstack IM's etc.)

    try a different theme. the vodafone theme, e.g., has much smaller arrows and you can see the signal bars.

    Have you seen the arrows from the plazmic 4.1 and 4.0 stock themes?

    HUGE!

    The Pearl arrows have definitely been on a long diet to get as small as they are now!
