Default Storm2 service indicator question

Please Login to Remove!

I try to find a Glossary that explains all the service indicators on Storm2. I was able to guess out most of the service indicator for what they mean, but one of them that I just could not find any information about.

There is a "blackberry" menu icon right next to "3G" right below the signal strength indicator, does anyone know what it that icon mean? I saw it was there most of time, but I noticed it this morning was not there, then, after I turned wireless off and on, it come back again.....

Would like to know what type of service indicator was that one for.

Thanks in advance.

More specifically, it means that you have the BIS tariff on your account and you are connected to it

Thanks.

But strangly, when the indicator was missing this morning, I was still able to get my emails from BIS accounts that I setup..... unless, I can get those internet emails anyway via my BES connection. I do have the BES for corp email account (Exchange email).....

Is there an on-line resource that actually detailly explain every service/message indicator for what they mean and when/where it might be available?

I know we kenw most of them already via discussion here and there, but it would be nice to have a cosolidated source that we can all reference to.

Nope, none that I have seen.

That's a good idea to start one here...... except, it will take some time to actually collect all the encountered service icons. I travels lot worldwide, I will starting to record (taking pictures) all the service icons that I am running into, and posted here over the time.

The PDF device manual has quite a few of the indicators.

Have you looked at it?
