I have the sprint iPhone
There are several icons which indicate the data speed:
Were all the members of your party using the same network?

So the white circle means data
It means data at the slower speed of CDMA. A GSM phone has an intermediate data speed between the slowest speed and 3G called EDGE or Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution.
So what I don't understand is why my wife's has a 3G signal on her android and mine has the circle , is that a iphone thing
Yes both on sprint at the same locations
She has the Samsung galaxy s 2 slide with the keyboard but wish I knew for sure
The Android phone was on 1X too, Sprint replaces the 1X icon to hide their 1X coverage on their higher end Android devices. Sneaky, ****** Sprint.
Speaks for itself, Sprint. Try more actions and not lip service.
So the 3G was really a 1x and my white circle was just data
Tricky tricky it's sad I couldn't send a pic on 1X with the iPhone
