    First question what are the 5 icons that are in row ( once you press a certain one the blue light, lights up under it ) i know the second from the left is the bluetooth icon & the last one on the right is for the brightness what are the other 3 icons for...?

    Also im trying to compose a gmail email to send and i see how i can add BCC to the email but how do i add a certain group from my contacts to the BCC.....?

    Thank for any help in advance

    I think you are talking about the power control widget. They are WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, Sync, and brightness

    To add a group as an e-mail contact just type in the name of the group. My phone found the group after that (but I couldn't find a way to selected it from somewhere in e-mail app).

    Hope that helps!

    i just tried it and it worked for me. after typing in the group name (in any field), just tap somewhere else and it will populate (i.e. fellas@gmail.com)

    Well i have tried every way possible, i click on the gmail widget then the bottom left corner to open up a compose mail page then i add the BCC & then i attempt to type the group name but nothing happens on the BCC line or the CC line or even the SEND TO line , i even changed the group name, started a new group with just one person, nothing
