    I noticed up in my notification bar on the left of my 3G signal is like 3 curvy lines all the time?
    Does anybody know what this is and for what?


    Thanks

    That is vibrate. Try moving you're volume up or down.

    I got the OTA and everything works great. However there is an icon of 3 wavy lines right next to my 3G icon and I have no idea that that is. Does anyone know?

    Have you checked to see if you phone is on vibrate?

    OK, now I will admit that I feel totally stupid now, but it is a newer icon. OK, there is no excuse. I will go bury my head now. One answer was fine though. No douchbaggery needed. :)

    Since updating to GB I have noticed a new symbol in the Notification Bar. It is three squiggly vertical lines. Can anybody tell me what this is?

    Thanks, I just read it in a another thread that I missed earlier. I feel like a moron now. I think my next thread will be "Why is my phone so quiet?"

    I have no idea what you are talking about. The squiggly lines were there all day long. I didn't realize I left my phone on vibrate so much. Pretty straight forward. If I had turned my ringer on I would have noticed the lines dissappear.
