Every now and again where the 3g is, i get an 0 or a circle in its place. Any clue as to why or what this is?

Lol civic thats the edge symbol. Meaning wherever you are, you're not getting good coverage in that area.

Perfect term

GPRS/1xRTT
Shows that your carrier’s GPRS (GSM) or 1xRTT (CDMA) network is available, and iPhone can connect to the Internet over that network. See How iPhone Connects to the Internet.

hmmmm. I thought that little circle meant that you were connected to 2G instead of 3G? which is just slower internet service?

Actually, it means you are connected to their CDMA2000 1x network, which while being the slowest CDMA2000 mode; is still considered 3G.

So it means you are connected to slow 3G as opposed to the faster EV-DO network (CDMA2000 EV-DO Rev. A on most newer phones).

Hmmm. Never knew that. I'm glad you clarified. I noticed I get that circle in my house sometimes if wifi is off or not connected at the moment. And it is definitely slower Internet. Feels like real 2G, that's for sure. Where I'm at anyway.
