    Hi guys,

    Does anyone have any idea about meaning of this strange symbol on Lumia 900? It appeared after updating Lumia 900 to the new firmware released a few days ago.

    Many thanks!

    Apparently that comes when your locations services is ON

    Are you sure? I've had location serviced enabled before and never saw this. Further more, it's there even with location services disabled.

    Have you looked up the symbol on/in your quick start guide? I will pull up the user guide on line and look.

    Sure did, this status symbol is not in there and I haven't seen it on any other Windows Phone before.

    It is location services, but I believe it is only on when location information is being used. The information is usually only used while you are in an app, so it's not at all odd that you don't recognise it. But if you tap to show the status bar while you're in an app using location services, it should be there.

    Windows Phone | Phone Icons | Status Bar | Windows Phone 7
    Location Awareness | Maps | Location Services | Location Services | Mobile GPS | Windows Phone 7

    Edit:

    It's not new.
