1. You mean the thing near the upper left that looks like crosshairs? I don' know. The important part seems ta be the '1x' symbol next to it, which means you is on the digital network (which is where you'll be mosta the time. The 6256i is trimode tho', which means it can go onto an analog network if it has to. You might see an 'A' there if its gone analog, which should happen rarely, an' only out in the boondocks).

2. The 'pitchfork' (lol) is a network tower. The bars above it are how many bars of signal strength you got. Four bars is max (great signal). Zero bars is bad (very little or no signal). I get 2-3 bars at home, an' that works great.. very clear calls that sound significantly better than my friends phones, even when their phones are readin' 3-4 bars.

I think Nokia is more 'honest' wit' their signal strength meter than some competitors.
