Default Icon on the main Screen?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, this is all new to me. I just got a 8350i.

On the home screen there is a small circle with a cross in it and 3 of these ))).

What is this small icon? Is it from when I downloaded AOL IM?

Thanks for your help.

It could be call forwarding.

hmm I think you are right. I opened the maps icon and it looks like that but I it stop and it is still there. I fail with this phone. Is there a better book about these?

If you want to turn it off, go to Options > Advanced Options > GPS and set the GPS Service to "Location Off".

It doesn't have anything to do with having a map application open or not.


Here's a link to download the manual and guides.
