Unhappy Weird Icon Not Explained in Docs

Please Login to Remove!

I have an icon I cannot seem to get explained from the docs or other users.
On the Sprint 7250 in the upper right corner under the indicator for signal type and strength there is a little diamond\circle with "waves" coming out of it like sound or someone speaking ))) going from small to large. Anyone know what this is? I don't see it on the RIM guides or PDFs that explain all the icons. Thanks! Chris

Welcome to the forums...

A screenshot would certainly help.

It isn't the older Sprint\Nextel version (doesn't have the antenna) and I haven't seen anything about the talk-to-talk feature anywhere . . . I cannot say for sure ...

That is an icon related to GPS. It's a location based icon. I have one on my Sprint 8830. I can turn it off by going into Options -> Advanced Options -> GPS and turning off GPS Services. The icon then goes away.

EDIT: Ok, it doesn't go completely away, but it does change when you turn the LBS off an on.
