    Just like the title says, I don't have any clue what this icon means. I'm running a Sprint Q10 and I have sideloaded Q10SQN100-4/10.3.1.2576.

    Any info is appreciated. I searched through the help app for any clues but haven't found anything yet.

    See the screen cap on the top right. Little house with what appears to be wifi bars.

    What does this icon mean?-img_20150601_215438.png

    It may be the Icon of your carrier!
    I have the same icons, except where you have the house, mine has AT&T!

    it may also be that you have your "look for Wi-Fi hotspots" on.
    Pretty sure it has something to do with wi-fi.. otherwise those are flames coming out of the top of that icon and your house is on fire!!!

    Apparently it means you or someone near you has a home wireless network extender. They are available from both Sprint and Verizon.

    weird, I have never come across that icon before. I wonder if it means wifi calling is enabled?

    It means someone in your immediate area has a network extender. It has nothing to do with WiFi calls. These extenders use the Internet and GPS to turn your house into a mini cell tower. I have one at my house and it works great. Just have to buy the unit and no monthly cost.

    I have had one of these micro towers for years. The Sprint version is called the Airave. I've had 1 with my BlackBerry Curve, Style, Bold, Android phones and 2 Q10s. This is the 1st time in all those devices I've ever seen it.

    Network extender would have been my second guess or was it the third?
