Strange Icon

I have an unfamiliar icon that appears under the time and date.  It is a number 1 next to what looks like upside down eye glasses.  I have read several boards, looked in the manual, and I cannot find any reference to this icon.  Any help would be appreciated. 


Also, I have noticed that when I am text messaging, using the full keyboard, that a line is running through the middle of the screen.  Has anyone else experienced this?

Re: Strange Icon

Hi and Welcome!


From your description, it sounds like the voice mail icon... you also should see an item in your SMS/MMS list of messages.


Not sure about your second question, though...
