Thread: Help! can someone identify this icon or program?!

    Default Help! can someone identify this icon or program?!
    I have 2.2.1 jailbroken on a 3g iphone. I've installed quite a few apps from the appstore and cydia (nothing that I remember from installer). Just the other day I had this icon pop up "circled in red". I've uninstalled and looked at all the apps I have and cant figure out for the life of me what program this is from. I did install the notifier that shows if you have an email or missed phonecall/text but I've had that forever and it never popped up there.

    Anyone have any idea what program that this little icon is from? The icon itself doesnt bug me but if its a program thats running constantly id like to know to minimize battery drain.

    Thanks in advance

    I've just noticed it was the OP's first post.
    Poor sod must wish he'd never asked now.
    @dsapper - don't worry about it - you did the right thing asking. Don't let us put you off asking more questions. There are lots of people on this forum who know lots about the iPhone and are very helpful. And there's me...

    TTY is Teletype, it's for deaf people to use the iPhone.
    I believe it is an emulator for [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telecommunications_device_for_the_deaf]Telecommunications device for the deaf - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]

    I just posted a link to that article because:
    a) I thought people knew how to click on links,
    b) I thought they might like to see the whole article rather than an excerpt and
    c) I didn't like to waste space in this thread...
