    Default what is this yellow notification icon?

    I have a yellow icon that appeared to the left of my temperature icon. It looks identical to the wifi symbol but its all yellow and has a 1 to the L of it. I'm on my torch but will try to post a screenshot if needed when I get home.

    are you using a stock theme?
    what applications do you have running?

    Some themes have different icon sets for different notifications.
    if you are using a 3rd party theme, i would revert back to the stock theme, and see if the icon changes.

    it is a wifi connection available... you logged into a wifi spot at one time and are now in that area again and the phone is asking if you want to log in again to that hotspot. Mine does it every time I return home because I have a wifi hotspot that it finds and wants to log into.

    just click on it and it should ask if you want to log in to the hotspot or cancel.

    I don't have the stock theme and have used my current theme long before I noticed this notification icon. When I have a new rss feed its a differnet icon not this. I was @ home and was on wifi but there hasn't been any other wifi places around.

    I did battery pull and it went away... But still wondering what may have caused this..

    As everyone above said, its the free wifi hotspot icon. I get that icon everytime I walk out of my house because BT's hotspot is bloody everywhere. Turning off your wifi resolves the issue.
