    So on my lock screen this icon shows up and I have no clue what it's for. It's a small white envelope like the kind we get for emails but it has these 2 white swirly lines going around it at the bottom. Anyone else see such an icon and have an idea of how I can get rid of it?

    Did you set up multiple email accounts from different service (yahoo, gmail, aol, etc) on your phone? It could be an indicator for one of those accounts.

    Not a problem. Glad you figured it out. Unknown icons are one of the largest annoyances in a device. I have a voicemail indicator on my tablet that has set up permanent residence so I know the feeling haha.

    EDIT: That is indeed a screen shot.

    Was gonna say Hotmail as soon as I read your description. I have a Hotmail account but barely use it too. If you don't want that icon to show up, simply go into your Hotmail from your phone, go to sync settings, and set it to manual.

    Dev unlocked my phone and then loaded an app called Screen Capturer. The app allows you to use your camera button to take a screen shot. Purdy handy.
