    Occasionally a 'bullseye like' icon will appear on the status bar just to the left of the battery icon. Anyone know what this represents....can't find the answer in any of the manuals...

    Thanks..

    As Ultimateone suggested it appears when the 8X is using the GPS to determine its location.

    Hi man,

    It is not GPS. ...

    The Roaming ( triangle ) icon lets you know that your phone is roaming and not using your home cellular network.

    hope it helps :)
