    I am seeing a new icon on the very top left of the screen.

    If one starts from the very left and moves toward the center, I have

    the time indicator
    battery power indicator
    strength of cell symbol
    wi-fi indicator
    unknown icon

    The unknown indicator is a rectangle (could be the phone) titled to the right.

    Anyone know what it indicates?

    Vibrate mode? Hit the volume up key when on a home screen.
    And I think you have your left and right mixed up.(clock is all the way to the right)

    Thanks. Sorry for getting left and right mixed up.

    It is silent mode indicator. If one presses the power button, one sees
    "Phone options." The symbol for silent indicator in the options shows on the top of the screen if it selected.
