    my boyfriend and i have identical droids...on the text messaging screen, where it shows the names of the people you have sent texts to, there is a green dot or a red clock beside the person's name on his but not on mine...it seems to be some sort of tracking because when i my phone is in use his phone shows a green dot beside my name, and when my phone is idle his phone shows a red clock beside my name...what is this, what does it mean, and why does he have it and i dont??

    Do you have "use my location" checked in the privacy settings and "use wireless networks" and "use gps satellites" both checked in locations & security. Make sure your syncs are on too, including the google sync.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is, are both your settings the same? You may have turned off a reporting feature off somewhere.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any android friends to show as online, so I may not be of much help.

    Are you sure you aren't looking at the Google Talk status?

    The default texting program also displays google talk status if the contact is on your google talk list.
