    Default New icon?

    Hey guys it is not doing it now, but I had this small blue icon looked like a bulb that was flashing between the 4G and the signal bars at the top.
    Anyone know what it was?

    Possible it could be an update from VZW ? Just throwing that out there...

    According to some websites google found me, it could mean you're in power saving mode.

    Light bulb notification - The giffgaff community
    strange icon - Huawei Ascend G300 - G300.MoDaCo.com - MoDaCo

    I'm not too sure, as I've never heard of power saving mode before.

    Means you're on a femtocell/microcell. (Wireless "range extender" that uses a home internet connection to provide cell service.) These sometimes are found in locations with poor coverage. If you look closely, the icon is not a light bulb - rather, it is a house.

    Correct I just seen it again, and is staying on longer? Why would it just start now occasionally? This is the 2nd time this week I see it at my house. Yes I have horrible coverage. But where is it coming from? Seems like it is jacking up my wifi
