    There is a sitcker attached to the outside of the battery that says "Location Based Services" then it has some cross hair looking symbol next to the words off and on. What the heck does this mean? Just curious.

    So, we meet again...

    That is the GPS indicator (see menu/9/1) settings. The network only supports the 911 setting (default) at this time (so I hear) and that setting displays as the cross hairs in the circle just to the left of the battery indicator. The enhanced location will display the aforementioned with the ))) after it.

    Post It.

    Works just fine my friend. Our state (island) is small enough that verizon has pretty much the entire state covered. Even from the ocean, miles off shore, and even under water!!! (Submarine tour 300 feet down)............ and even from 10,000 on top of Haleakala Mountain in Maui (Above the clouds)..........hahhaa................"Can you hear me now?" I'm going to New York in September so can't wait to see how my verizon service catches over there.........

    Hey Hawaiian Nights,
    How about Molokai? I went there on my honeymoon back in 98 and my phone worked.
    Aloha and Maholo!
