    I notice that if my gps/3g is enabled, it doesn't show in the notification bar. Have I perhaps turned off something to show the notification, or does it mean GPS/3g isn't working?
    I use task killer, which I wonder is messing things up.

    GPS and 3G are different.

    3G will only show if you have a high speed data connection in your network coverage (or it may display H for HSDPA).

    GPS should show the dish in the top bar if you have it switched on. The dish should have "beams" if your phone can "see" sattelites.

    Thanks for that. Strangely, the GPS certainly doesn't show, even when connected. Hmmm. I'll have to check, further.

    I think it only shows when it's being used, e.g. if you use CoPilot, Google Maps etc. It'll animate to show it's searching/found satellites.
