    hello all.

    Need another help here, does anyone know what that "target" sign on the upper right corner of my bold 9930 means? and how can i turn that sign off?

    Thanks.

    I think your gps is on, maybe something to do with geo-tagging?

    Yep, a GPS is enabled and in use by an app.

    The plain target icon (what you have) means that your GPS is set to E911 only. On a GPS enabled device this icon will always be up there in the corner.

    When it has the 3 lines next to it is when your GPS is set to Location On.

    I think it means that you can be found by emergency services if you need it.

    Options>>Device>>Location Settings>> Change Location Services to OFF. If you want to, you can also disable Location Aiding and Location Data.

    It doesn't actually let you change the location settings to off. It has to be either E911 or "Location On"

    Oh I can get there, but for Location Services, my only options are "Location On" or "E911 Only" I don't get an option for Off.

    It offers Location ON and Location OFF

    I have a 9900 though, I am not sure why it's different.

    Might vary based on the os revision. The location settings have been known to vary slightly in different os builds.

    Could be, I am using a Voda OS. They don't use 911...LoL

    EDIT - I can't recall the last time I could not turn off my location services/GPS

    Well that's interesting then... I can't remember the last time I was able to turn them off.

    Maybe it's a carrier thing?!?!?

    .. Good to know the truth is out.. Lol.. So for those with a CDMA device, you guys can expect the crosshair icon to show on your home screen and there's no way to get rid of it even if you set the device's GPS to E911..
