    State of Confusion (FL too)
    So I'm screwing around with my phone...learning the ins and outs...seeing what non-essential things I can shut off when not used like the GPS while I'm in the house or office all day.

    You need to have the little GPS Toggle Widget installed on a Home screen to do what I describe...

    So at the Home...Settings...Location menu and turn ON BOTH your Location Setting and Use GPS Satellites.

    Now go to the GPS Toggle and turn it OFF. Go back to Home...Setting...Location menu and you'll see that the Location Setting is still ON but the Use GPS Satellites is OFF.

    Cool...but now try to this MANUALLY....

    Turn on BOTH your Location Setting and Use GPS Satellites. Now try to turn off ONLY the Use GPS Satellites option so that the result is as if you used the GPS Toggle Widget...YOU CANNOT DO IT!! Well, I cannot...can you??

    What is the reason for this?? Just a little glitch or a problem?? Should the GPS Toggle be shutting of MORE than it is??
