    Does your WiFi icon dance when it is using data (with arrow) and not (without)?
    Mine does and it's annoying.

    I don't know whether they are two separate graphic images or the arrow gets added to the non-active icon but regardless, it jumps to the right and left all the time. As you can see from the images, there are a few pixels difference in the footprint taken by the active arrowed icon, causing a shift to the right.

    The cellular data icon's arrow is added within the bars so it stays static.

    I tweeted @WinPhoneSupport and this is the following conversation, resulting in them making me question if it was just my experience. I thought - surely not, it's an O/S thing - they just need to move that arrow nearer the WiFi arcs.

    So.. anyone else?

    I originally got static arrows under the Black update on my L920. Since going up to Dev Prev, it now "dances" as you say, and yes, I find it a bit annoying.

    However, I would never have noticed if you had not brought it up, but that is just me.

    It was there before Cyan, some people got it at 8.1DP. I believe it was a carrier option, that was enabled for some.

    My Lumia Icon has it on 8.1 dev preview. I think it is like Chris said a carrier option. I believe mine was just enabled by Verizon with the update released like a week ago.

    So the arrow just means you're actively using data?...

    Yeah I noticed this, its one of those "features" you'd liked to be fixed. Its annoying when you unlock your phone and you have the silent/vibrate only icon next to it where it moves about briefly.

    Glad I'm not the only one annoyed by it :D

    Really? I'm sure there's probably worse. It's a bug they need to fix, dckhead. Like every other bug. You don't need to look at it every minute to know it's not working properly.
    Had no one replied you may have had a point.
    You type of people make me sick.

    The life?

    It's not disturbing my life, I'm highlighting a bug. LIke many others do.
    Maybe number one in stupidity was letting your parents breed.
