    Since last night, I've been seeing this weird icon in the top right of my iPhone near the battery charge status (circled in yellow below). A power cycle hasn't removed it. Does anyone know what it might be?

    I have the default 2.0 firmware that came with my iPhone 3G out of the box.

    Something to do with VPN connection or something? Looks like an old phone handset.

    It means your battery ran out and you have switched over to nuclear power.

    It means you have to lay your iPhone down on a bed of gravel.

    Apple Tips...

    Here's Apple's online tips & tricks:

    http://www.apple.com/iphone/tips/

    Open it with Safari on the iPhone, and you will be asked if you want to save it as a "Web Clip". This will give you an icon on your home screen of the iPod, so it's never more than a press of the home button and a tap (and maybe a flick or two...) away.

    The icon is grey with 1,2 & 3 in a vertical line.

    Very handy!

    It's the Cthulhu symbol. The iPhone displays it when you're about to go insane, for your convenience.

    It means radiation from the iPhone is going to start hurting your leg soon.

    I think that means you have crysis running in the background.
