Re: circle with plus icon? thanks.

That icon means that you have Location based services on. If you were to call 911, they would be able to find your location with the GPS that is built into the phone. All new phones have GPS built into them, even if you don't pay for GPS programs or services, it is used by Emergency Services to find your location in an extreme situation. You can disable this feature in your settings, but then it will show the same icon except with a line through it(like a no smoking sign) i'm pretty sure that's what it is, i have seen that icon on several different phones and that is what it means!
