    I just got to my parents house and there is now a little flashing blue house icon above the signal lines. What does this mean???

    Do your parents have a network extender by chance?

    Not sure what the house symbol is (maybe the network extender previously mentioned) but to take a screen shot, hold the power button and volume down button simultaneously for about 2 seconds...wah la, screen shot!

    What Tis said.

    But if that house icon only shows up at your parents' house most likely it's the network extender. A friend of mine uses a network extender and I'm at his house quite often, but never get a house icon on mine. Could be a Motorola thing or could be the type of extender, don't know.

    Hmmm I wonder if this is Moto specific or Verizon Extender specific.....most likely Moto. Glad to hear your "issue" was resolved.

    I believe its my phone and not Verizon because my last phone didn't have this icon and no one else has it.
