    There is a refresh symbol at the top of my screen. What does it mean and how do I get rid of it? It is just to the left of my wifi symbol. Anyone know?

    You probably have Yahoo Mail or some other mail or something else set up to Sync with a server - and it's probably eating up battery to boot.

    Good Luck and hope this helps!

    When I added my gmail there was picasa syncing and not stopping. I did think my battery was draining fast. Thanks.

    I believe that icon is telling you that your phone is syncing something. It could be email, google calender, facebook, etc.

    Open task manager and kill anything that syncs (gmail etc). I've had it from time to time. Killing Gmail does it for me.

    I got it to go away. It was syncing picasa under my gmail account I added. I just unchecked it. Thanks.
