    If I'm clear as to what yall are referring to, it means your BIS is working. When you see the logo, it means your emails, bbm, and anything that goes through the BlackBerry servers are fully operating. When you don't see it, you may find that you don't get emails or bbms.

    I do think it only shows with 3G. When you're on EDGE, EDGE is in capital letters and that let's you know you have BIS. When edge is in lowercase, no BIS.

    You'll have to either send the service books again or do a battery pull to get BIS back, or reset it by toggling it off then on under Mobile Network Options in OS 6 or Options > Mobile Network in OS 5.

    Generally it means that your phone is in 3G connection coverage area, or is using Wifi connection, and you have BIS data plan with your carrier; ввм, internet, and push email are available.

    When your phone is out of either 3G or Wifi coverage, you will get 'EDGE' or 2G connection, but the  symbol will not be there. But you are with BIS data plan and can still use ввм, internet, and push email.

    'GPRS' still allows your internet, ввм and email to work at an ancient slower speed.

    If it shows 'edge', that means ввм and push email won't work.

    'GSM' means you can only use your phone to make or receive calls and send text messages. No internet service.

    Those are as far as I understand.

    No, the 3G means you have 3G coverage, the BB symbol means you're connected to RIM's servers.

    That's because there's not enough space to display the BB logo with GPRS and EDGE. Think about it: there's only space for 4 characters, the logo "3G" takes only 2, guess how many characters GPRS and EDGE use.

    If anything, it doesn't mean much really. It indicates your BlackBerry Internet Service is working, but that's it, nothing special (except how cool it looks)
