    Yes the triangles represented no service. Calling *228 activated the phone removing the triangle.

    The first icon looks like a GPS symbol. Do you have location settings on? That can be a battery hog as well.

    Under locations I have checks next to Google location services, Standalone GPS and VZW location services. Not a good thing?

    Its not a bad thing. If you use it then leave it on, I personally never use it so all of those are unchecked. If you uncheck them then that icon will go away.

    i find this curious to have happened. she flashed the other day and it didn't need to be re-activated (she didn't say so anyways), and i have never dialed *228 on a smart phone yet i have flashed 100+ times easy.
    is this something specific to the x2?

    Its specific to 3g devices. SBFing may not require activation if you flash the same system version. If you wipe data or SBF a different version you will need to reactivate.

    Now that I am back to stock (I did not reformat) but I am still having very quick battery drain. When I go to Settings and battery usage it is saying that "Phone Idle 61%" This seems quite high...?

    i realize that is not good answer, and 60% is quite high, but battery usage varies greatly from user to user. Is this the original battery, it could be going bad, or a bad charger can cause problems

    I suppose 15-25% is closer to normal, but I have never spent more than a few mins at a time on stock
