A globe icon indicates pending web requests. In other words, you started the browser when it couldn't retrieve data so it has stored your requests. Generally these brwoser requests are listed in Messages and you have to delete them if you want to clear the indicator. It's possible that the browser request icon is "stuck" and in that case a battery might resolve the matter. Just make sure that you don't actually have pending browser requests first.

I see what you're saying but the Pearl doesn't come with a holster or other form of carrying case... Did that shock you too? ;)
