Windows Phone Status Bar Symbols – What on Earth?

Windows Phone Status Bar Symbols – What on Earth?

  • Comments 8

Having been berated on Twitter this morning for failing to be intimately familiar with the symbols on my status bar (specifically I didn’t recognise the vibrate mode symbol), I thought I’d clear things up by publishing my understanding of what they mean.

Or you could follow this link if you need to know what they really mean.

Thanks to @eddiespooner and @chrisntr for the bacon pointer. That one had me stumped.

  • See, I thought (10) was a sports score tracker. I did wonder why they kept resetting the second teams score.

  • Rugby or basketball at those sort of levels :)

  • The triangle (4), if my memory is correct, definitely means you are in or near a Youth Hostel.

  • 6 is a new superhero sign.

  • Thank you for posting this! I came across a bacon proximity alert yesterday and didn't understand the symbol either. That's a bummer as I really love bacon. (Can't imagine why I couldn't smell the bacon in that small meeting room though...)

    P.S. I usually keep my Exercize Profile on easy.

  • Mmmm bacon.  I think that every time I see that icon.  Maybe with vnext, we can add a bacon sensor, or better, a bacon provider.

  • The "I am a shape" comment made me laugh, but now I've got the tune in my head.  Damn you Ormond, damn you straight to hell!
