What do all the icons mean on my smartphone? and also why dont they include a simple?

Q. guide in manual that tells you what each icon means? Isnt that a great idea? lol
seriously though, how are you supposed to know what every icon on android smartphone means???
its really annoying.. i have tmobile g2x running android and i have no idea what half the notification icons are telling me, --and how am supposed to know???

A. What icons? Most of the icons are self-explanatory. All the apps are labeled with names, and just opening them tells you what they do.

As for notifications, if you just open the notification tray, it tells you.

I prefer android over apple for the reason that its open-source, that means that the majority of the apps are free, and you get more revolutionary and cutting edge apps, and do things are even only barely available on a jail broken iphone
The android market already has 250000 apps- closing in on apple 500000; some say it will surpass it before the year is over. Also any popular iphone game or game adaptation can be found in the android market for free.
Another great thing about android as that if you dont like something (keyboard, homescreen, etc.) it can easily be swapped without jail-breaking, unlike the iphones one-size-fits-all approach.

Despite the false rumors, The iphone is also just as, if not more vulnerable to viruses as android

Apple lovers that say that the iphone is made of better quality material? They don�t realize that Samsung, an android phone maker, supply�s the screen, processor and memory for apple devices, so android has the advantage here.
The iphone is pretty, but not durable, drop it once- it breaks, all that glass around it? That was honestly a mistake. Android manufactures clearly saw that, and decided to do with something a little more durable.

And the iphones �retina display� is a huge scam. By definition a �retina display� is one where the human eye cannot distinguish individual pixels. But this is determined by several factors; most important being the distance between the screen and your eyes. The iphones retina distance is 12in, move any closer than that- say 7in and it�s no longer a �retina screen� because your eyes can now see the pixels, by that same token, if I move my android phone back, to say 16-17in, amazingly, it becomes a retina screen as well! (feel free to google this)

Also apple never invents anything, there never �the first�. All they do is steal old technology, give it a fresh coat of paint and mass advertise it as �magical� and �innovating�, thus fooling the mass of the population into believing that apple offers cutting edge technology, that in fact has been around for quite a few years.
So instead of innovating, apple actually hinders technology- after 4 years they still have low-power single core phones, while android, an example of technology in overdrive, has rumored that, after their second year, the release of quad core phones that will surpass even some desktop computers in shear processing power. (now any 2011 android is smoother and faster than the iphone)

Apple should now feel pretty worried; android has passed it in market share

Then apple panics and sues
http://www.dailytech.com/Google+ExCEO+Apple+Doesnt+Innovate+They+Sue/article22190.htm
The funny thing is that apple can�t sue for being the first touchscreen or tablet, because they weren�t,(Nokia fist touch screen, �archos� first tablet) so instead they sue for much more relevant things like, �the rounded icon corners� and �having a flat screen� or �the square shape of the phone���..

To top it all, if you�ve seen apples 2011 presentation, they blatantly copied over five "new" features that were previously on android.
http://androidandme.com/2011/06/news/five-features-in-ios-5-that-show-how-apple-is-now-playing-catch-up-to-google/
http://www.droid-life.com/2011/06/06/apple-introduces-ios5-with-notifications-ota-updates-and-tabbed-browsing-android-users-giggle-at-their-late-arrival/
1. Notification bar
2. Twitter integration
3. No need to connect to PC to sync
4. Launch apps from lock screen
5. Tabbed browsing

And not only are they copies, but apple didn�t even bother to improve, or change some of them in any way- some even have LESS features than their android counter parts, it�s basically a cheap imitation with the ever-popular iphone skin.
According to Steve jobs, these "revolutionary" new technologies that android users had since 2007 will be available on IOS5, and it would not surprise me to see some more android features from 2008 on IOS6.But the truly sad part is that due to apples marketing, in a few months, apple lovers will really think that apple invented those features and call android the copycats�yet again.

Though I suppose Google should�ve seen it coming�.

What does the green symbol with four prongs on android mean?
Q. I have an Android (pantech burst) and in the status bar at the top there is a circular green symbol with an outer rim that has four prongs, one on the top, left, right, and bottom. Please help and tell me what it means!

A. That's the GPS symbol. When green it means your GPS locator feature is active.

See page 16 of the PanTech Burst owners manual for information on all the screen symbols:

what will happen if i put my android sim card in a regular phone?
Q. i am using a android which means i have the data service, but i just wanna know if i can put that sim card into a regular phone and use the internet on that regular phone and not get charge extra?

A. you paying for a data connection meaning regardless if the phone is android or not it will be serviced for internet so long as the phone features internet as an option. however you will loose some features on the new phone if it is not an android I.E "app store" or "gps". But as for extra charge, you already pay for it, so no charge would matter depending on your plan.
