Question Curve 8330 Sprint screen icons

Please Login to Remove!

I need help with my screen icons please !! I have a gold phone icon with what looks like chevrons to the left of it....also a white circle with a cross kind of thing to the right of my bluetooth icon...what do they mean? i tried to find them in my manual...no luck ..Oh and I have turned the phone on and off and pulled the battery. Also I dont have any messages or missed phone calls that I dont know about. I checked... thanks!

The white circle with the cross is your GPS - means the location based services are on (check under Options -> Adv. Options -> GPS. This is a good thing

As for the gold phone icon thingy...not sure. Is it an actual icon, or something up above the icons (like where the notifications show up)?

Sounds like a missed call alert. Click on your Call Log/Phone icon and then back out. Does that indicator go away?

Ah, your phone is forwarded. Click on the Phone/Call Log icon, then go into Options -> Call Forwarding.

You have to set the forwarding to 'Do Not Forward'.

You've set it to 'Do Not Forward' and have done a battery pull?

Weird. What if you re-forward it, save it, battery pull, then unforward it (and battery pull if it's still not gone)?
