Unknown status indicator on phone

Hello all,


My husbands phone just rang with my ring tone...there was no number listed, but now his phone is blinking and he has a smiley face with a star over the eye on the top of his phone.  I forgot my phone at work, so we can't look at my phone to see if that is where the call originated.

Any suggestions on what this may mean?  There are no new messages on his phone either and it's not a Yahoo messenger either.

Thanks for your help!
