    So I jailbroke last night.

    Right away I noticed that when I have data (3G) off (using SBSettings) a red blank dot (like a notification dot without a number) appears over my phone app. Is this normal? I swear I have not noticed this before I jailbroke, but maybe because I never had 3G off?

    Did ANYONE else experience this? Should I restore and rejailbreak?

    EDIT: Just realized that the dot doesnt always show up, when I turn 3G off? Hmm.

    I think this has to do with visual voicemail not being available with data off, but I used to turn on Airplane mode all the time before I jailbroke and NEVER saw this dot.

    I get it sometimes, too, even when unjailbroken.

    I'm pretty sure it's something to do with visual vm not being available despite there being a phone signal (and limited / no data).

    Red dot means phone is available but voicemail is not. It does it when 3G is turned off. You won't receive voicemail notifications while the dot is there. It's basically saying "you may have voicemail but we don't know"
