    New Odin Video. Let's play along!

    I can't even begin to explain what this may be.

    I'm going to go with some sort of app store. :dunno:

    after some reading it seems like the rogers wap is the browser u would use with a rogers data plan rather than a rogers bb plan- maybe you can get a storm 2 with data only saving some money, however u would lose push email and bbm; ie the things that make it a blackberry

    haha nope, i was way off...i didnt catch the mall half of the icon-

    http://www.rogers.com/web/content/wi...ans/rogerszone

    maybe it uses the wap browser to connect to this?

    -edit

    rogers mall is rogers app store. while it usually has a cart as its icon, it often changes to the wap icon as a result of trying to unbrand it

    Its just a shortcut that uses the WAP browser to connect to the Rogers "Mall" like you said earlier -- It connects to the section where you can dload ringtones, wallpaper and stuff like that through Rogers---standard data charges apply. I know this cause I have T-Mobile on my storm and I get a similar icon. I actually hide the icon --- when I click on it , it uses the WAP browser -- the layout has items like ringtones, wallpaper, news, top stories...its like a browser within a browser through t mobile. its useless to me and I am sure Rogers users will feel the same way, haha ---

    So I guess the real question would be why a Verizon device has an icon for a Rogers Wireless service..... Otherwise, it sounds like Rogers' version of VCast.

    The Storm 2 is also a world phone---I can assume that the phone was probably unlocked for Rogers. Just like my Storm on T-Mobile, I have the same type of Icon but it says T-Mobile of course. Indeed, it is something like a VCast -- the icon just appears on first boot --- the provider sends a service book.
