    Odd icon on my K850 phone following update...

    So, my Sony Ericsson crashed big time yesterday morning, and the usual tricks of popping the battery out failed to work. So i tried updating the phone with the software tool, which involves doing a hard reset. Luckily there was also a firmware update just out to fix some of the issues with the phone. Great.

    Only now i've a strange icon on the display - and can find no clues what its about. Its up at the top left, next tot the signal bar and the 3G icon; it looks like a picture frame with a head-shot of a person in the middle (red clothes, yellow face, no features, blue background), but also has a red arrow on the right hand side with a bend in it, as if its pointing towards the picture frame, then away.

    Any ideas what it is?

    No idea but at a guess, a icon of a person could mean a profile, and the arrow like that could mean divert

    Just a guess though

    Sounds like its trying to download/upload an MMS message, or at least sounds similar to my LG when its doing the same.

    Is it in the same place as you'd get your message notification?

    Its different to the MMS icon, even though it is near the message notification area. Its different tot he normal profile icons, too. Might be a divert icon, but bit wierd if so as i've never set on up and the phone was reset completely... Plus it worked normally for calls and voicemail when t'other half and i tried it last night...

    Diverted MMS messages? Failed MMS upload/download? Video message left?
