It's probably the phone's way of showing me there is no WIFI connection. Is that it? Probably not since that would probably be a "no icon" thing.

Anyway, couldn't find it in the user's manual so here you go... question asked.



The circle indicates that you're on the cellular GPRS data network. The fact that it's visible also means that you don't have a wifi connection:

  • 3G/3GS/4’s show a “E” instead of that, to indicate that they are on “E”dge network. – Martin Marconcini Dec 2 '10 at 1:48

    @Martin: those newer models also show the circle if they are on plain GPRS without EDGE. – Ortwin Gentz Jan 23 '11 at 12:52
