    I was unable to capture a screenshot so I'll have to explain it in words as best I can:


    There was a "data-like" symbol in my notification panel on the left side about 3 icons in. It had the up and down arrows like the 3G data icon but instead of 3G it was an "E" turned 90 degrees to the right and on top of the arrows.

    Anyone know what that was? It's not there anymore and I can't seem to isolate which apps were running at the time, etc...??:thinking:

    Thanks
    Jerry

    The only thing that comes to my mind is you were downloading something. I get something like that when data is downloading. were you downloading something??

    Yeah I think I was from the app market. But I've never seen that icon before - I've only seen the 3G data icon. And I was using WiFi at the time so 3G data was off....???

    It could have been the market app or another app doing an automatic update. That's what I think according to your description. The icon shows on the top left when my apps update.
