    Yep, it's the GPS, Abe was correct!

    I turned off the GPS in the power control widget to save battery life, but I appear to still be getting some location services (the weather channel app updated my location when I came to work).

    Is the GPS truly off? Is the phone using cell towers to determine approximate location?

    Thanks.

    Yes. If you have network location turned on, apps will use that to determine location.

    Thanks. I was also having a problem trying to figure out what that icon was for.
