I was recently in the UK and used a Vodafone SIM. At times when I was in an area of low reception the 3G symbol would disappear and be replaced with a circle. Any idea what this is? I suspect it's to do with a considerably slower connection as using the internet became slow or impossible.
I never see this symbol in my home country, Sweden, though the operator (3) is 3G-only.

In the USA it represents a GPRS signal which is older technology. This is why your connections are slower. It is usually only found in remote areas.
