    I saw a "dot within a circle" icon on my 920's status bar and was wondering what it was. I found a handy page that was part of the 920's online manual that showed me it was the icon for "An app or service is using your location info."

    Since I remember questions regarding what various icons mean cropped up occasionally for the Lumia 900, I thought I'd share this link for any other new 920 owners, especially those who are newly arriving from Android or iOS:

    On the left of that page is a listing of the other contents of the user manual too, so this is a handy page to bookmark.

    Here's the official MS page about the icons. It says it's for WP7 but the info is valid for WP8 as well. It has a few that are missing on the Nokia page:

    I always kept forgetting what the 'vibrate' icon meant. I thought it was telling me my phone smelled bacon nearby. (oooo, future feature idea!!!!)
