Default Some simple screen and connection questions..

Please Login to Remove!

I finally got a battery for my 2750, works great! Glad I got it!

Some questions about it.. I got pretty familiar with the icons and screen, but there is an icon I am still curious about:



It looks like a cross-hair target, and then sometimes it has like what looks like a signal bar becide is, or something that looks like this:

((( O

I assume this is GPS? What do the different icons mean?

As well, is there a way I can connect my BB to the internet via USB or do mail vis USB until I get a plan for it?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Yes,, the cross-hair icon is GPS. No, without a data plan you can not get any internet or email on the device.

How does the GPS service work? I am with Telus Mobility, do I need to get something from them or does software available on the net actually work for GPS? I would like to give it a test drive once I get my data plan, any recomendations? Is this true GPS, working with satellites?
