    I'm traveling in Taiwan and have a weird icon on my status bar that's not listed on http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-faq/745-droid-phone-status-notifications.html.

    The left side has a white exclamation point in a black triangle but when I try to look at the message, the preview says something about data roaming but when I tap the message, the status screen closes right away. I don't know what that's about but I don't care so much because I don't want to do data roaming.

    But on the right I have a hollow black triangle that I can't find any explanation of. Then four bars of cell connection and the batter indicator.

    And I don't get a WiFi indicator, even when connected.

    What's the hollow black triangle?

    That's the debug notification, it happens when you have your phone plugged into your PC and you have USB Debugging enabled.

    No theme.

    I'm not connected to a PC so I guess the answer is "always there."

    Do you have a notification associated with it? I dont know of an app that puts an icon in the top left without telling you what it means in the pulldown notification screen.

    The message says

    Data Roaming
    You have lost data connectivity because y
    then a half-grey "o". When I tap the message, the status drop down closes.

    Did you Google the message? I get a ton or results about needing to reprovision your phone. Dial *228 option 2.

    Otherwise, take it to VZW.

    I don't want to do data roaming so I'm not too concerned about that message. I intended this thread to find out what the hollow triangle on the right was.

    Well does your phone work? Since you are in taiwan I am surprised if it does. Droid is not a GSM phone so might have something to do with roaming and not being able to find a CDMA signal.
