    I get this from time to time on my iPhone 3GS without a jailbreak. Its like a little blue circle. I have been lead to believe that it is when the phone is determining the best signal for the time being. I'd like to know if anyone else has a better answer to the problem.

    Yes. That is exactly what it means.

    It's hard to believe there is worse service than Edge, still around. :p

    Blue dot = GPRS = General Packet Radio Service.

    Wifi > 3G > EDGE > GPRS.

    actually:

    Wifi > 3G > EDGE > A Dead Sloth > GPRS.

    To be fair, the majority of the area I live in is only covered by GPRS, it's only really the cities that have EDGE (I still have a 2G iPhone). There are the occasional hotspots where the E will appear, but most of my area is GPRS only. It works fine for emails, IM+ and things like that, just don't try browsing on it :p

    I know how it feels... I too an using original iPhone, and it's a pain to see only GPRS. EDGE is like once a week at the most.
