What is the little arrow?

There is a little blue arrow on the upper right of my iPhone- top the left of the battery indicator. What is that?

It is the "Play" indicator for the iPod feature. It is a new bug in 1.1.1 where it indicates that music is playing, even when it isn't.

You can do 2 things to get rid of it.
1) Go into the iPod and hit play on any song, then pause. That will do it.
2) Or you can re-boot, that will do it too.

Don't think so. NEVER had BT on yet.

I just checked, it is gone now... maybe just a glitch...

But it was a Blue arrow (same blue as the "E" for Edge), pointed like: ">", just next to the battery....

Since there was no picture - I just guessed.

The BT icon is arrow like, at least...

I had the stuck iPod Play icon after 1.1.1, but after a restart, it hasn't reoccurred.

I hope Apple is working on this bug,
whenever i see the blue arrow it just irritates me so much. I have to start a song and then stop it to get rid of it
