Hey, I went to NY for the weekend and while there this little icon popped up in the top right (like next to the battery icon) and it looks like a phone with a keypad under it. I searched around the net and couldent find anything about it, it is not even in Apples list of status icons. Anyone?

I was thinking Roaming, even though I wasn't, but I am home now and the icon remains, this along with everything listed in my last post has me worried so I am just gonna restore and then not mod at all.

I can't help but to feel that in some way the modding is effecting the phone, just the "it wasn't meant to be this way" has me feeling iffy now.

That's TTY. You can turn it off in the settings.

Not to worry, this question gets asked quite often.

Too often, really. Apple needs to pop up a notice when people turn TTY on.

It'd be nice if they also put the user's manual on the phone itself. Of course, without being able to jump to any page on PDFs, it'd have to be in HTML format. But anything would be great.

If it's going to be touted as an easy-to-use device, it should have a Help key.
