    Question Icon: What is this and where did it come from?

    Advertisement



    Ok.
    So i JUST noticed this icon on my screen when I make a call. I don't think that it has always been there. It is only when I am using the phone for a Voice call. When I activate the speaker phone it goes away. If i deactivate the speaker it comes back on the screen. Its position on the screen is theme related. If I use a stock BB zen theme the icon remains on the screen however is positioned more to the right.

    Has anyone seen this before? Its not really a big issue but curiosity requires me to know what it is, and it blocks the in call timer which is kinda annoying.

    thanks
    regards

    I figured it out. It looks like a voice mail cassette tape.

    It looks like a signal strength indicator to me. Is this a "stock" theme or a custom built theme?

    The little blue thing? That pops up on our 8130 when you select audio enhance - bass boost - or treble boost - to change it - go to your call log and hit Menu key and select Options then go to Enhanced Audio

    Yah it does look like a signal strength icon of some sort. However it is not. (it is always what appears to be MAX.) The icon appears on 3rd party themes and the BB stock themes too. As mentioned the positioning of the Icon is in a different spot from theme to theme.

    Mcm's correct its the enhanced audio feature; shows up when you set it to Boost Bass or Boost Treble

    Under Phone>Options>General Options> Enhance Call Audio

    thanks EVERYONE!!!
    it was definitely related to the Enhanced Audio. Had no clue.

    I however had to access it this way:

    Call Log> options>General Options> enhance call audio then selected Normal

    this took the icon away and put a on!

    thanks,
    regards

    Is that a feature of the 8120 also? Just so I know when it might show up on mine.

    Found out from another user if you accidently push the "L" key while on the phone it activates the audio boost. To deactivate (thereby removing the icon), push the "L" key while on the phone until the icon is removed. I spent weeks trying to figure out what it was and how it had appeared. I must have inadvertantly pushed the key while on the phone. Oh ,I have an 8130 with Sprint.

    Just to add my 2 cents it also shows up when the call mode is set to privacy guess it changes the sound so the people around tolu can't hear all of your convo also disappeared when speaker is pressed~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
