    What does the screen on the display mean?

    In several photos of different PPC phones I've seen them with the G near the signal strength. Can someone tell me what the G signifies?

    but if you have a Sprint PPC6600 you won't see the 1x (just heading off that potential followup question).

    Thanks for the information - I was wondering if it was for 802.11G or something.

    @mopper - Sprint's doesn't display anything. Since (in 99.9% of the US) Sprint doesn't offer any EV-DO service (and the device as released is not capable of using it anyway) they eliminated the 1x icon because it just takes up space. One nice thing Sprint puts on all their phones (including the 6600) is an icon up top (that appears once you're connected to data) of up/down arrows that are blue when your connection is dormant, and black when active. It's a quick way to know whether your connected and transferring data (meaning you will miss incoming calls).
