    Where can I find what the notification symbols mean?

    Can someone point me to a thread or site that identifies what the notification symbols in the upper left corner mean? The user manual has a limited set and I am recieving others and not sure what they indciate. One is a little green droid, another is a little black droid in a suitcase. Thanks so much!

    Thanks DtBoos.

    The suitcase one refers to updates available for some apps you have. If you pull and drag the notification bar down you should see further explanation. the little green android must be from an app I don't have. I can't recall seeing that one. Perhaps advanced task killer?

    Yes, the green one, if it's like the one that I have is advanced task killer. It came already loaded on my droid and I haven't removed it.

    dboots & Cookiemonster,

    Thanks so much for teaching me something new on my Droid, I didn't realize you can pull down the notification bar! The green droid is the the Advanced Task Killer and the suitcase Droid the app updates. I really appreciate the information!

    I've got a symbol showing up on the RIGHT side of the notification bar that is 2 circular arrows and my Droid seems to be moving very sluggish. In computer terms, that symbol is used for REFRESH, but I've rebooted my Droid several times and I still seem to be getting that symbol and it hasn't sped up.
    Any ideas?

    I'm seeing the same thing BradMajors is seeing. And now my phone has become unresponsive...

    Does anyone know what is going on?

    The Refresh symbol is used (and in this case placed on the right side of the notification bar) to signal that Android is syncing your phone with Google. This includes retrieving Gmails, syncing the calendar and contacts, etc. However, I'm not sure how this relates to your Droids being sluggish.

    That is the sync icon. For some reason your phone is trying to sync constantly. I would go to settings : accounts & sync : your gmail account, then see if something is constantly syncing. Probably calender, but there's 3 that may be doing it.

    Task killer came loaded on your Droid? did you get a refurb? That shouldn't have been on there.
