Never seen it. I think Jolla must publish a more detailed manual with explanation of symbols, features etc. that are now present in the system.

Would be great to get help on the status-icons, when tapping / clicking on them.

@JPS do you have more than one data-network access point for your operator? maybe it is an indicator for which access point is in use at the Moment. check it at Settings/systemsettings/mobile network

@Zandi There's only one access point. (Also I've used the phone about month now and I don't think I've seen the icon before)

ok, it was just a thought

The dot indicates that tethering has been enabled. The "1" is a place holder for the number of connected tethering clients. The software does not currently support tethering, there is some UI code but it is not complete. You see these because something, I don't know what, has turned on tethering in Connman.
