Default What is this strange Verizon stasus indicator on my phone?

Ever since moving down to carry I have seen a strange status indicator on my Droid Bionic periodically. It continuously blinks on and off, and when I make phone calls I hear a strange chime. The icon disappears when a call is connected. It looks like the little house over the service bars.

Are you using some sort of cell signal booster?

Is this it (see attached)? Some people say it's a roaming icon, but others say roaming is a small R in the same location. My best guess would be the phone is set to home network instead of automatic. Check your network settings. It should be under Settings / Wireless networks / System select and make sure it's set to Automatic, not Home network.

Nevermind, looks like h4x0rj3ff got it right.
