    I've noticed while texting that the little robot icon beside my contacts name is sometimes upsidedown and other times he is rightside up. Just an observation. Does this have any meaning?

    I have noticed it as well but never really payed any attention to it. I wish I had an answer for you but I don't. I will keep an eye on it though to see if anything in particular causes it. Hopefully someone here has an answer for you. It definately does occur though.

    Could it be that he is upside down if you're replying and right side up if you're initiating the text?

    I don't think so. I've not been able to find any rhyme or reason. Very strange...at least I know it's not my imagination ;)

    It's something of an easter egg so to speak. Googles odd sense of humor.

    Im glad someone else asked about it, cuz I've noticed it too, but I've never seen any rhyme or reason to it either!

    Hi! I also have a droid powered phone and in my contacts' list, I've noticed that!! Except some are just in different corners and some completely upside down, like you mentioned. I think the different facing robot icons are for different carriers. Because I have Verizon Wireless, and I have a friend who lives in Canada and their icon is in the bottom left corner, while a friend who I KNOW has At&t's icon is upside down. Hope I've helped... because I've wondered the same thing!
