    Where do I go to find out what all of the icons on the taskbar mean? Some of the symbols are pretty clear and I can guess what they are but there are a few of them I dont recognize and they dont show me anything on the pull down.

    Thank you

    But there is one of them that is not covered in the manual. It looks like a W with a line below it and a phone above it. Not sure what that one is.

    I have a 1X where the 3G icon should be I assume that because I'm have no 3G where I am correct? Sorry for the newbie question but this is my first day with Verizon and coming from TMO the networks are completely different so I just want to be sure.

    pretty sure the phone with the W is a missed call.

    Some 3rd party apps from the market will also have "notification icons" associated to them - have you downloaded any apps and can you remember what this might correlate to...

    Also, if you pull down your notification bar, is there anything that corresponds to that particular icon?

    Also it's important which side of the screen they're on. If they're on the left, they're application icons. If they're on the right, they're core Android icons. (Of course, if your notification bar is crammed full the line is harder to find.)

    If it is red, then i do believe that it is a missed call.

    For those that don't know that small section at the top where
    the taskbar icons are is a pulldown screen that will let you know
    if that red w is a missed call

    did you ever figure out this icon? I have the same icon and I have no idea what it means. The verizon store people had no idea ether.

    well i think i have the same thing. The 'w' is actualy 5 dots, 3 in top row 2 in bottom row.
