for starters this forum is GREAT! finally found a place where I can get answers! now for the question. I used to have the "1X" icon on my notifications bar. According to the manual, it meant that I was connected to the "3G" network and was transmitting data (fyi with Sprint). That icon has since disappeared??? Does that mean that i'm no longer connected to 3G speeds? Easy fella's....i'm a newbie to this Android and smart phone stuff. Thanks.
