    It is the e911 icon and turning on any GPS app will put those curved lines beside it indicating GPS is being used. It is there until you root your phone. This is only a Verizon/Samsung deal. Sprint, AT&T, T mobile don't have the icon. Verizon a came to the conclusion last Saturday that some reps are lazy/stupid. Took my old phone and new phone she told me I had to do it because they don't/can't do it. When I had them do it 3 months ago.

    By the way the icon is page 20 in the online manual, Verizon's link didn't work.

    Root that rascal.

    Yes we all have e911, why all Samsung's don't have the icon or all Verizon's phones don't have the icon is beyond my grasp. But it's nice to be reminded that your being watched over. Shoot off a nasty email to Verizon and if enough people do maybe they will remove it. More better not add it to all the other phones. iPhone has never done it and they been tracking phones forever.

    The reps at Verizon should've know this.

    Curious, you never get the normal GPS icon?

    Ah, just wondered. That icon is 6 months old, surprised Verizon couldn't figure it out.
