    Does anyone know what all of the icons along the top of the display on this phone mean? I can't find a single place that says what they all mean including the manual.

    First things first, welcome aboard and we hope to see you often.

    Second, I will be in your beautiful part of the country in a few weeks on my way to vacation; Washington to San Fran. As a matter of fact one stop will be in Wellington

    Now on with the show, my 3589, which is a great phone, has 2 icons always showing, 1x. this is a form of digital, it takes the place of the old "D".

    The snow flake means that the phone is 911 GPS enabled, in the event of a tragedy and you are able to dial 911, you can be found.

    The 2 reels, which show sometimes, means you have a message waiting.

    If you have any other questions, even if I cannot answer them, others will be glad to contribute.

    I hope that I have touched base on all the icons.

    Thank you, you would think that their would be a little chart or something in the manual, but I guess that would have been too intuitive.

    Any idea what the roaming indicator is? Does the "Verizon" text in the display change to "Roaming" or "Roam", or does a specific icon appear instead?

    My nokias on the America's Choice show "Verizon" while on your Home Verizon Network, and "Verizon Wireless" while on a non-home Verizon network(meaning outside your Home SID). It also shows "Extended Network", and "Roaming"(that it does with a solid triangle).
    Hope this clears things up,
    Andy
    P.S. Welcome aboard, Bob.

    I think Extended Network means when the phone is roaming off-Verizon, but is on a preferred roaming partner.

    My 3589i (when I had it on prepaid in 2004) only displayed "Verizon" when it was on the home network or on another Verizon network. In Canada, only a solid triangle (the roaming indicator) was displayed.

    On my next trip to Canada, I intend to take the 3589i with me, this time activated on Americas Choice, to see what the display reads on the way up going through another Verizon network outside of my home network, and once in Canada.
