depends which os you're using; the icon for settings in 2008.12 (on my
phone) is kind of abstract, multicoloured and says settings under it.

is your phone brand new? if so, and you haven't flashed a new os, it's
probably running 2007.2. is that correct?

i believe 2007.2 is usable, but more people are using 2008.12,
although there is a community-based fork to continue 2007.2's
development iirc

don't forget to reply to all, including the list, rather than just me
