Do not panick, CareAce is here to care for your Samsung WM needs! And that is not just a cheesy comment. We have compiled a couple of charts with both the symbols and it’s descriptions nicely arranged in a table, just for moments like this. Here goes:
There are also some questions regarding the 4 most common letter that appear in a WM device’s Taskbar: “H”, “3G”, “E” and “G”. Some are explained in the chart above. Here’s the break down:

  • H – 3.5G Network
  • 3G – 3G Network (3.5G allows speed up to 3.5MB but usually average around 1MB~1.5MB.
  • E – Edge Network
  • G – GPRS Network
