    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 15", 2.16 ghz, 1GB ram, 120GB; iPod Classic 80GB; iPod shuffle (2nd gen); iPhone 16gb
    Unidentified status icon!
    I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the recent iOS 4 update I installed on my iPhone 3GS, but I've noticed a little status icon in the right corner of the screen, next to the battery icon - it's purple and looks almost like a little paper plane. It pops up now and then, but it's never been there long enough for me to try to take a screenshot of it, when I've noticed it.

    It's not in the manual that I downloaded from Apple's site. Has anyone any idea what it is?

    It means that a running app is tracking your location. Camera uses it, maps. It's just letting you know when your phone is aware of your location
