    Hi there. This may be a stupid question, but what is the icon with a White circle/dot in it? The icon replaces the WiFi/3G one next to "O2-UK".

    I know the "E" is shown for EDGE and "3G" for 3G, but what is this dot? It seems quite fast, and it's all I have in my house.

    Thanks.

    really? It seems too fast for GPRS, that's why I ruled out that option! It downloads Google Maps in just seconds, sometimes instantly.. I can't wait to try 3G then!

    Thats what the iPhone displays when your stealing frequencies from another carrier.

    New wireless logo when on "almost 3G" ?

    The little blue logo in the menu bar, that used to say "E" for edge now says "3G"
    on my old iPhone when I couldn't get Edge it would just be all blue which meant "GPRS"
    what does the new one mean?
    it's the blue box with a white dot in the centre.
