Hi, I'm new here and I'm a user of android phone and I have a question with it.

I've just moved to a new simcard and for some reason a new icon has appeared in the notification area.
Its a picture of a simcard with a small cog wheel in the bottom left of it.

I cant get rid of it and cant find anywhere a list of notification icons.

I cant clear it, i can select the icon in the dropdown notification listing but it does nothing.

I've found another person on XDA-Developers and androidforums with the same thing. They are with the same carrier as me, Vodafone NZ.

Is there solution for this???? As it is quite annoying thing!!

I have seen this on an X10 mini pro, it comes and goes and I'm not sure what it'd for. Nothing bad seems to come from ignoring it though. I think it's just something that happens with android from time to time. I have also seen it on my HTC Magic, but I have not been using it long enough to know if it's a consistent thing or not.

I had it on the Samsung Galaxy S and it was due to the fact it "wanted to know" if I wanted to import the contacts from it (wicked welcomes, Vodafone Live, Customer Service).

It might be a ICON advising the SIM has a STK app installed on it which the SIM does

The general consensus out there in forum land is that it is something to do with the SIM toolkit and seems to be report more often on new VFNZ sims than any other carrier anywhere.

Read into that what you will.

It seems to be a benign notification in that there doesn't seem to be any negative impact.
