Question Sprint Phone Icon?

Please Login to Remove!

There is a phone icon on my main screen that I have never seen befor or that's in the 8703e manual. It is a small yellow phone above the strength bar on the main menu. This icon is there when I'm doing nothing. No phone use or data use. It also appears when I'm on the phone. This is not the yellow phone icon in the top left corner that appears when using the phone. It just stays on the icon menu. It has two very small triangles pointing left. I have taken the battery out for 30 seconds but still there. Any guess what this is?

Unhappy

Man I can't believe 58 people viewed this thread and not one persone knows what this is. ITS STILL THERE. I just didn't want to go into that store again. I hate dealing with Sprint employees. Love the EV-DO hate the customer service.

No idea. Check all messages, voicemal. Don't know what else to tell you if you already checked all these things. You say it's NOT on the manual that explains all the icons?

Ok its not an Icon I can hide. If your running the Demention Icon theme its above the signal strength bar. Maybe Call forwarding Icon? How do you deactivate it?

I agree with the picture. However, a more simple process might be going down to your Sprint store and ask them. I have a Sprint 8703 and I have no idea what you are seeing?

Search for "screenshots". I think you will find it.
