Re: home screen symbols

On my homescreen to the right of the speaker icon and to the left of the time, there is a small symbol that kind of looks like a phone. It is a vertical rectangle that has a white border, mostly black inside but with a white band running horizontally 3/4 of the way up. Does anyone know what this is/how to remove it if necessary?

Re: home screen symbols

I have a symbol on my home page that I do not know what it is.  To the right of my email notification and left of the time, There is a black circle with white outline with a white arrow pointed down/left.  In the upper right pert of the circle is a red circle with a white star(this means new i am sure).  To the left of the whole symbol is a number 2.  What is this.  I wish I could just click on this to figure out what it was.  I have had this phone for a year and never seen this before. 

 

Obvously I have 2 new somethings.  Its not email, voicemail, pins, SMS, IM, alarm, or calandar.

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

See this guide:

From your description, it sounds like the AppWorld update icon. Either AppWorld itsellf has an update or one or more of your Apps you obtained via AppWorld have updates. Go into MyWorld and look at each app...updates will be discussed. Then go to Messages and delete the message from AppWorld concerning the update(s).

 

Good luck!

Re: home screen symbols

I have a tour. I had a symbol of a phone pop up that has an arrow pointing 90 degrees away from the phone symbol. What does this mean?

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

Please scroll up in this thread to the image posted of various icons. Yours sounds like an AppWorld update icon. Go into AppWorld and apply any updates you find.

 

Good luck!
