    Looks like a keyboard...
    Maybe you paired something with your iPhone.
    You didn't Jailbreak, right?

    --------------

    That icon means that iPhone is able to use a TTY device.
    This function used to be off by default, but if you want to turn it off, go to Settings > Phone > TTY.

    It's showing that your phone is currently set up to work with a text phone device for the deaf.

    A phone atop of seven small dots means that it is set to work with TTY. TTY, also known as Text Telephone Device or Telecommunication Device for the Deaf (TDD), is a special device required at both ends of the conversation that enables people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or speech-impaired to use the telephone to communicate. TTY works by allowing people to type messages back and forth to one another instead of talking and listening.

    This is TTY symbol. Some kind of facilitation for deaf people. You can turn it off in your settings.

    Settings -> Phone -> TTY. Turn it off. Unless you use TTY.

    Edit - sorry for the redundancy, I was composing my message and hit send a minute after others did. :)
