    Can anyone tell me what this top bar icon is? Looks like the letter "N" with a sideways wifi indicator. It is almost always present, just unsure what it is actually indicating.

    Thank you SUroot! That is it exactly. Samsung should include it in the manual, for those of us that could not sleep without knowing what it was!! Well done sir!

    Looking forward to upping my Desire HD to an S3 soon and near field communications sounds an intriguing advance. I live in a built-up area of London, so am wondering whether it is likely to work near parks and public gardens?

    I don't understand the question. Near field communication only works to a maximum of 1-2 cm from the back of the device.

    Oh dear, I think it was a joke. Near field (places with grass etc...)
