    So, I tried to search for this, but the response was so varied, it was impossible to see anything even remotely like what I am inquiring about.
    Take a look at the upper right corner of each of these pics.
    See the little phone Icon? What is it? it showed up today for the first time, shortly after I sync'd with my PC.
    I have iTunes 7.5 and firmware 1.1.4 jailbroken.

    So does anyone know what it is?

    ok, I still want to know what this is. I am making it my mission to figure it out. if Anyone else has seen the icon that I took the screenshots of, and knows what it's for, please let me know.

    I think it's telling you to upgrade to 2.0.

    funny you should say that....
    I think I narrowed it down to McCleaner as the program that made the icon show up. I was attempting to remove it as well as a couple other programs crashed - BADLY
    So, as I type this, I am restoring for the 3rd time this evening, this time to 2.0 software.
    sometimes it pays to leave "well enough" alone, because "well enough" is normally better than expected.

    If you see this symbol [​IMG] in the status bar, it means that TTY is on.
    Teletype (TTY) machines are used by deaf and hard of hearing people to communicate by typing and reading text. If you have the iPhone TTY Adapter, available at, you can use iPhone with a TTY machine.
    Choose Settings > Phone to turn TTY on or off.
    For more information about using TTY with iPhone, see the iPhone User's Guide For information on other accessibility options with iPhone, see
  9. What is the point of your post? I don't mean to be rude, but its barely relevant to the original post. Thats not the same symbol that he saw.

    Yes it is mcleaner. That's the icon indicating a blocked call.

    Oh yeah. To get rid of that icon go into mcleaner and clear history. Just like if you have a miised call on the phone app.

    Doesn't matter anymore. That phone died months ago, and the chances of me jailbreaking my 3G are very slim, and even if I did, the chances of me installing McCleaner again are about a billion to 1.

    Small phone icon by battery

    Well, this might help some wandering iPhone user (as it did light up a light when I read the thread) that is seeking information on this.

    I don't use the same programs as the original person that started this thread but I, too, had the same question.

    After some research through this thread and a few others, I realized that iBlacklist on my iPhone (jailbroken) was giving me the SAME little phone icon by the battery. This meant it had blocked a call for me that was on the blacklist successfully.

    So, if you see this and you have iBlacklist or some type of program that blocks calls, this might be why you see a little phone icon by the battery. :cool:

    Hawk, u should update to 3.0 tomorrow. If u got AT&T u got nothing to worry about. Just update and wait for a jailbreak to come out. it shouldn't take long.

    As soon as the update becomes available and I am near my home PC, I will be updating.

    Hurray! The point of your post is that almost a year later it helped me! Thanks so much. This has been driving me crazy as it just "showed up". You have saved me from a long and frustrating hold to the Apple people. Muchas gracias, nono!

    My mother-in-law has a symbol similar but it's a phone with water drops coming out of the earpiece and the mic. I am assuming that it is telling her that the phone has water damage. Not entirely suere though.

    Sounds like the TTY icon. Or are you being sarcastic?

    No I am serious. Is that what it is?

    edit: Wow, I just checked on my phone and that is what the symbol is. Good call Kaba, I'll let her know. Thanks

    It's funny because she did leave it out on her patio right when she got it last summer and it started sprinkling rain. She went out and grabbed it but it was too late and it had water drops on it. Then she noticed the symbol had appeared. I have no clue if it was there prior and she just didn't notice but that's just what she said. At that time I still had my old 3g and she had just got hers and thought maybe it was some new software detecting the moisture level in the phone. I was like, wow, that's new. LOL.

    That was before my dedication to eiC though.
