    Three days ago I've noticed a small red envelope near the battery status on my iphone. I'm wondering what that thing is. Thanks.

    Never seen a red envelope before. Can you take a screenshot of it next time you see it, and post the image?

    i tried this:

    1. Press and hold the Home Button down (the button below the screen).
    2. Briefly press the Lock/Power button (the one on the top edge).

    not working with me :S
    when i press the lock/power button it simply locks the phone.

    not sure if this works or not but if you have Gmail set up you might have a red envelope on your phone like you would on your mac computer. The Gmail notifier. Just what it reminded me of but I am prob. wrong.. ;)

    I haven't installed any Gmail notifiers. I don't think it is related to Gmail at all.

    on the iphone (only works on 2.0 software), whle the home button is pressed, press the power on/off button. you will see the screen flash white. this flash is the screenshot being taken.

    then if u go to your photos -> camera roll, the picture you just took will be there.

    transfer it to your computer and then post it up here.

    Jailbroken? Do you have apps installed on it other than the default ones?

    You can just take a picture of the screen if you have a dig. camera near you.

    Well, in that case, you can install a program to take a screenshot since it's jailbroken...

    1) 1.1.4 does not have simple screen shots.
    2) The red envelope is reportedly caused by "Taskbar Notifier" thanks to EDIT: philgilder

    3) Take a pic to help us out further - the jailbreaking app is the only thing causing this.
