the icon in the red square! i'm guessing it means something is down loading? but i cant see anything running in spare parts or the stock app. it just showed up. i've forced stopped everything running, turned off back ground data, cleared cache..and yada yada... Just NOTICED i put this in the wrong spot... ok i found it. settings, applications, manage applications.. its Contacts Data. what is that for? i force stop it, but it just pops back up. EDIT : i think i found the problem..earlier i had the phone hooked up to my laptop in PC mode and just unplugged the USB. i think is was stuck trying to sync. i just plugged it back in and was a good boy and did the remove thing. its been 40 min. maybe this can help someone else..
