    House icon above signal meter?

    This showed up on my wife's Bionic today. I have never seen it on my Razor, but she said it shows up frequently on her phone. What does it mean?

    Maybe the symbol for when you're connected to a femtocell?

    That would make sense, we were at the time. Now I'm curious why my RAZR didn't show the same thing.

    That's exactly what it is. I work at a rural data center where we get lousy coverage. One morning I noted that symbol and then a buddy from networking stopped by to tell me that he is testing a femtocell. Worked pretty good, but it was being moved to another area of the building for visitors.

    Right, I have a network extender at home and the icon pops up when I get there.

    My razr did when I had the leaked version. But now it doesn't show the house at all when I'm on my network extender.

    4g speed test hasn't been any faster than usual but I have noticed that my cell bars have been 4/5 the whole time which usually isn't consistent.... I'll try to see if the 4g stays cool on my phone at home because typically it heats my phone up here with all the interference

    I've noticed comments that it doesn't show up if you own a RAZR. It must be one of the diffences in the ICS between the two phones.
