    Dumb ?

    What do the arrows pointing left & right in between the battery indicator and the signal strength indicator mean?
    I assume that they indicate some sort of data transfer. They seem to be displayed on my Q all the time. I checked the manual and did not see anything about it.
    Thanks.

    I think its wireless data. Because once I connect it to a PC the arrow goes out. So I presume the Q is logon to data network all the time. (Unlimited data plan here so no worry) And a log off when there are activsync is connected. (Since the internet goes through the USB)

    My vote is for data also. On the Treo 700p, there are also arrows. Just launched the web browser and sure enough, they go green. Normally, they are greyed out.

    Any time that you are transmitting Data the Arrows pointing inward will be there // Whether you have a Data Pkg or Not... But I Personally would never recommend having pay per KB being that can add up pretty quickly. Pay per KB is 0.015/kb // I had a cst call in one time with about 60,000 kb used & she was on the pay per kb feature... talk about feeling bad!! that was 60,000kb times 0.015 came up to about $900.00 !!

    Thank goodness I have Unl cuz I racked up tons of usage in the first week!

    Never pay per KB, Ive had a similar experience and no matter how careful you are watching your usage, your bound to get hit once or twice with outrageous numbers....
