Cloud icon with question mark??

    I tried to search and I even read the manual (skimmed really). Every once and a while I get a white cloud with a question mark in the upper left corner of the screen.

    I assume my phone wants to connect to the cloud but can not?

    I didn't know I had set up any accounts to connect to the cloud. I back up my contact to my Verizon site.

    Anyone have thoughts about why the cloud shows up with the question mark?

    I could be wrong, but is it telling you there's open wifi networks available?

    I don't think so. I have "Notify me when wifi is available" turned off. When it's turned on and you launch an app it opens the wifi panel.

    This is a little fluffy cloud with a smiley face. It's really kind of creepy.

    It looks like the cloud pictured on "Backup Assistant Plus" Maybe it means I couldn't connect when it wanted to run the bu?

    I don't think that's a standard icon for Note II. It is probably an app icon or one of your carrier's bloatware icons. Usually icon with smiley face is a text message app icon or some kind of chat app.

    Yeah, it's not specific to the N2 as my Droid X is doing it after a factory reset. I'm pretty sure it's the Verizon contact sync.

    I'm not going to worry about it :)

    It might be advertising, pushed by ad networks like AirPush and caused by a recently installed or updateted app on your phone.

    This thread could help you to catch the culprit app ...
