Battery Meter

Usually when I see my battery meter on my Curve, it shows up as a colored battery and as the power is used, the color disappears according the the usuage.  However yesterday, the battery showd up with four spaces in it with numbers.  I looked for this symbol in my book, and could not find it.  Can anyone explain it?

Re: Battery Meter

I don't know, people have been asking for sometime how to show the battery as a percentage and we'd like to know!

Re: Battery Meter

The default batt icon is the battery pic with it being colored.  If you chang to a different theme (other then the ones installed by the os) you may get a different icon.  Sometimes I use "PocketDay" which I have installed on my BB an I get a numerical % not a picture.  Hope this helps you.

Re: Battery Meter

I repeat :

Alt-NMLL
it allows you to have decibels showing the coverage quality instead of some pictogram, in any theme.
the higher the better.
-20 => very good
-90 => very bad

Zandrex,

He's talking about the battery, not signal.
