Wifi Icon on status bar?
Anytime I have WiFi turned on, I get the icon in the upper right corner. However, when I walk into work there is also a WiFi icon in the middle of the status bar right beside the email and voice mail indicator. I do not see a description of this icon. I do not get it at other locations (like my home) when on WiFi. The other thing is that my battery gets drained at work. I wonder if this icon means there is communications constantly going on due to our work WiFi (an enterprise network by the way).

Re: Wifi Icon on status bar?
It apparently is an alert that the BlackBerry detects a hotspot within range. I don't know exactly why the icon shows sometimes and sometimes not.

As far as battery, turn wifi and bluetooth off when you are not using.
